Champion to Continue Support of Pony Club Pony Racing

The Pony Club is delighted to announce that Champion are continuing their sponsorship of Pony Club Pony Racing into 2017.

Champion, who have supported The Pony Club since 1990, have a tremendous safety heritage and the brand has been a driving force in the design and development of protective riding hats for over three decades.

Thanks to sponsorship from Champion, Pony Club Members can take part in Race Days at some of the best known racecourses in the UK and, just like jockeys, they wear colourful silks, weigh in, weigh out and parade in The Paddock before the race; all adding to the exciting atmosphere and unique experience. 

All Members taking part are awarded points towards the hotly contested Pony Club Champion Safety Wear Pony Racing Points Series, and the top three in each section of 128cm and under, 138cm and under or 148cm and under are invited to a presentation day where they will receive a certificate and a rosette; with the overall winner of each height section also receiving an engraved salver to mark their achievements.

Pony Club Chairman, Mary Tuckett, said: “We are thrilled to be continuing to work with Champion on the development of Pony Racing. Our Members benefit enormously from the wide knowledge that Champion bring; the partnership between The Pony Club and Champion is well established, and works well as we share so many of the same values and ideals.”

Sarah-Jane Fedarb, Managing Director at Champion, commented “We’re delighted to continue our sponsorship of Pony Club Pony Racing, and we are proud to have supported The Pony Club in this way for many years. The Race Days take place at racecourses around the country and provide a fantastic experience for budding young jockeys. As a family owned British business with a proud heritage of supplying the equestrian market with safe, reliable and well-made products, supporting the Pony Club Race Days and the jockeys of the future has always been a priority for Champion. Supporting the next generation is an important part of continuing with our legacy of safety.”
