Zoe Pulling is back from furlough now and has sent out the following:-

Horseracing’s education charity Racing to School are offering to expand their successful summer camp “Horseracing Taster Workshops” to Pony Clubs and Centres that have not had the opportunity to participate before.

Delivered by a team of ex industry professionals, the sessions provide a fun and informative introduction to horseracing which includes a coaching session on a racing Equiciser. Their flexible approach means they can be booked for half or full day sessions depending on the size of your camp and are most effectively used as an unmounted session for an hour to give the ponies a rest with a couple of rides in each session.

Their team are also able signpost any interested members to the team at the Pony Racing Authority who run more specific training days or for older members can give them information about their Pony Club Careers “Raceday” programme run with support from the BHA’s Careers in Racing team.

More information about their programme can be found on their website here

They have updated their Risk Assessment to include our current coronavirus guidelines which you can find attached to this email.

The charity is very kindly offering their activities for free to all participating Pony Clubs, but do ask any participating clubs that feel able to kindly consider a donation to help them on behalf of the 14,000 young people they support each year, the suggested donation for a day is £100. However as stated they are happy to run events for free if you are not in a position to make a donation.

Please contact their Programme Manager Ollie McPhail for further information and available dates.
