Pony Racing Training & Qualification Days for the 2022 Season

There are PROVISIONALLY 9 Northern Point-to-Point Pony Racing Fixtures on the 2021 calendar beginning on January 23rd. PRA are running 2 PRA/PC Training Days for children aged 8/9 – 16 who wish to qualify to race or just see what it is all about on the following dates:
Saturday 16th October – Hexham
Sunday 17th October – Kinross
We are able to return to the ‘old’ Training Day timetable and so children/Jockeys will take part in ridden and non-ridden sessions in the morning and then, providing they are safe and happy to do so, go up the gallops in the afternoon. The days are run by Pony Club Instructors and Qualified Jockey Coaches.
You can find out more about a Training Day and watch a video of one in action here.
Children should book directly via the PRA website (www.ponyracingauthority.co.uk) or using the links above. The day is £30 in total. Please contact Verity (contact details below) with any queries.
Entries are limited and will close when full.
Nb – Children DO NOT need to be Pony Club or Pony Racing Authority members to take part in the Training Day
– To take part in a PRA Race, children must be 9-16 years on age and a PRA member. To take part in a Pony Club Pony Race, children must be a PC member and aged 9 on 1st January. PRA/PC Training Days can be used to qualify for both.
-Ponies must be between 4 and 20 years of age and under 148cms and children must ride the pony they wish to qualify to race on.
More information is available on the PRA website.
Hope you can join us!
