Pony Racing at Lockinge Point to Point

OBHPC members are encouraged to enter the Pony Races at Lockinge Point to Point. There are usually 2 or 3 racing ponies in each class, with the rest of the entry made up of pony club ponies. There is no jumping involved and the race is over 7 furlongs –  just half of the course. It is a wonderful opportunity and great fun, with children parading on their ponies in the Parade Ring before being led out on to the course, and the lucky few coming in to the Winners enclosure afterwards, including the top OBHPC member.

There is a mounted rally at the Point to Point course a couple of weeks before the race to give you a chance to try it out.

In order to run at Lockinge the combination of rider and pony will need to have completed four days hunting or four Pony Club Rallies.
