Pony Club and Pony Racing Authority Training days

These are a joint training initiative run by the Pony Racing Authority and the Pony Club.

Experienced Pony Club Instructors teach alongside BHA accredited Jockey Coaches and provide the best possible introduction to pony racing. These days not only allow children to ride their own pony in a controlled environment and on the gallops but also provide an insight into balance and control in a forward seat with the simple use of wobble boards, space hoppers and stepping stones, running alongside the use of traditional racing equipment such as an equicisor.

In addition to riding tuition, the training programme includes advice on rider and pony fitness and nutrition, tack guidance and race day procedures and etiquette. These days qualify the combination of the Pony and Rider to compete in a Pony Club or Point to Point Pony Race.
