Racing to School Riders’ Programme for Pony Club Members

The Pony Club and Racing to School are working together on the Racing to School’s Education Programme, and are pleased to offer FREE workshops for Pony Club Members aged 12 years and over this coming April.

Racing to School’s Riders’ Programme for Pony Club Members will take place in the 2017 Easter Holidays at Kempton, Redcar, Pontefract, Nottingham, Fontwell and Larkhill Racecourses, and are aimed at those who already have an active interest in horses and horse sport.

The workshops provide fun and informative activities aimed at increasing knowledge and appreciation of horseracing, and Pony Club Members will be given access to normally restricted areas of the racecourse during the morning before watching live racing in the afternoon.

For those young people hoping to combine their love of horses with a future career, the team will provide details on a wide range of opportunities available in the racing and thoroughbred breeding industries too.

The events are taking place at:

4th April 2017 - Kempton Racecourse, Surrey                  
10th April 2017 - Redcar Racecourse, North Yorkshire
11th April 2017 - Pontefract Racecourse, West Yorkshire    
12th April 2017 - Nottingham Racecourse, Colwick Park, Nottinghamshire
12th April 2017 - Fontwell Racecourse, West Sussex
22nd April 2017 - Larkhill Racecourse, near Salisbury    

Recent feedback: 

“The whole day was excellent from going behind the scenes, meeting a trainer, clerk of the course and the champion jockey! The team were knowledgeable and friendly, a great day.”

“Thank you so much to all involved in today. We as a family have had a fantastic day and a once in the lifetime opportunity to see behind the scenes. A very valuable day and I would highly recommend to others”

“An absolutely brilliant day for the children. Had I been younger it would have changed my career path. An opportunity not to be missed”

Spaces will be limited to a maximum of 30 at each event, so will be offered on a first come first served basis. Parents are welcome to join their child(ren) for the activities if they wish.
