In partnership with The British Pony Racing authority, we are now able to offer racing academy for under 16's.

The courses take place across the country and are fully funded, including the hire of ponies and equipment, but each rider will need to provide their own safety equipment including a riding helmet, body protector and riding boots.

You need to:

  • Be aged between 11 and 14 years old

  • Have a basic standard of riding and be able to canter in a riding school

  • Really want to have a go at pony racing

  • Show commitment to the course

In 3 years nearly 40 children have completed the scheme and over the next 2 years we expect to see another 30 children go through. 3 of our Academy Graduates are riding as licensed jockeys ‘under rules’ in the UK.

The schemes are currently being run near in Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire, Worcestershire, London, Cheshire and Sussex further Academies opening across the UK including Lincolnshire. We also work closely with the Northern Horseracing College in Doncaster and the British Racing School in Newmarket.

All those who have completed the 12 PRA Academy sessions have taken part in a pony race at the end of it.
