Natalie and Tiddler get the Pony Racing bug!

Natalie (9) from the Wheatland Hunt Branch loves watching racing on TV and has always wanted to give Pony Racing a try, so as soon as she was old enough she and her pony Tiddler joined in the Champion Safety Wear Raceday at Ascot

Read about her day below:

Nat and Tiddler 1 “Top Rock Vasha (or Tiddler) is an 11.2hh pony who we have had since she was a year old. She is a bit quirky…... a bit like me really…..that’s why we get on!

“Most mornings before school I ride Tiddler out with my granny, the best bit is galloping around the farm.”

The day of the race at Ascot

Nat and Tiddler 2 “Before the race I was nervous because I wasn’t sure what Tiddler was going to do, but when the flag went down she shot off so all I had to do was steer and sit there until the finish.

“At the end of the race I was really really happy with Tiddler because she had never raced before and she isn’t that brave.

“I can’t wait to get a new hat, that is a great prize - thanks Champion!

“My second race is at Cheltenham so fingers crossed it goes to plan.”
