Team PONY were lucky enough to be at the Charles Owen Racecourse series pony racing finals. Thrilling is the only word for pony racing,see for yourself...
Taking place on Racecourse before or after professional racing, two races are staged each time with Ponies and Riders having qualified to compete. They take place between April and October with points accumulated for The Finals, which is the pinnacle of the Pony Racing season.
The whole experience is more formal than other Pony Races, mirroring professional racing to give those involved an insight and understanding as to how the professional sport operates. The BHA Starter, Judge and Clerk of the Scales officiate.
Sponsored by Charles Owen since 2005, the Racecourse Series is widely recognised as being the showcase for the sport, and also for future jockeys to be spotted.
Charles Owen’s investment in the sport over the past 8 years has been significant, and without their commitment many of the opporutnties today through Pony Racing would not be possible.
Nearly 30 Racecourse stage over 40 Charles Owen Series Pony Races each year.
