Racing to School Riders’ Programme

Following a highly successful pilot scheme, The Pony Club and Racing to School are continuing to work together on the Racing to School’s Riders’ Programme! We are pleased to be able to offer FREE workshops for Pony Club Members aged 12 and over during the February half term holiday.

We will be running a Riders’ Programme Event at Doncaster Racecourse on Wednesday 19th February 2020.

The events take place on a raceday and parents are encouraged to stay and participate and will also gain FREE entry to the racecourse.

The programme is designed to encourage those who already ride and/or have an interest in other equine spheres, to further develop their interest in Horseracing and consider Racing as a potential career path or pastime. The workshops provide fun and informative activities, aimed at increasing knowledge and understanding of Racing. The Racing to School’s Team will take Pony Club Members (and parents/guardians) behind the scenes of the Racecourse. Gaining access to normally restricted areas such as the Weighing Room, Stable entrance and the Racecourse itself. There will be opportunities for a possible meet and greet with a Jockey, to hear first-hand from the Racecourse Management Team, Ground Staff and the Equine Welfare and Integrity Officers. All this before the thrills and excitement of a full afternoon’s racing!

For those young people hoping to combine their love of horses with a future career, the team can also advise and provide details on how to access the vast range of career choices the Horseracing and Thoroughbred Breeding Industries have to offer.

For more information and to apply for a place, please contact Ollie McPhail on Please include: Name & Age of Pony Club Member(s) attending, and the name of their Pony Club Branch/Centre.
