Pony Racing Day

The Horseracing Certificate at QIPCO British Champions Day is back! But this year it’s bigger and better than ever, with the addition of a new and exciting ‘Fan Zone in association with The Pony Club’.

Taking place at Ascot Racecourse on Saturday 15th October, this is a chance for members of the Pony Club to learn more about the exciting equestrian sport of horseracing, earn their ‘Horseracing Badge’ and enjoy a fun afternoon out with friends from the Pony Club and beyond.

What Does the Day Involve?

Starting from 10:30am you can go on a behind the scenes tour of one of the world’s most prestigious racecourses, including a visit to the paddock, a walk out onto the track and peek inside the weighing room. You will also get the chance to meet various racehorses and learn about the breed, go to Jockey School and have a bitesize lesson on one of the racehorse simulators and learn about the different tack used by the horses and jockeys on a raceday.

‘The Fan Zone’ will be jam-packed full of fun activities and competitions for you to take part in throughout the afternoon, as well as providing a base from which you can enjoy the racing. You will also be able to learn all about the ways that you can get involved in horseracing in the future.

You will also receive a QIPCO British Champions Day goody bag which will include British Champions Day Pony Club merchandise, as well as other treats.
