Equine Transportation: Racing Ponies

When thinking about racing equine transportation, it is easy to just think about thoroughbred racehorses featuring the best professional jockeys at the biggest professional meetings. However, we can’t forget the next generation of racing greats that master their skills racing ponies.

Pony Racing

Pony racing, run by The Pony Club and Pony Racing Authority takes place across the country and is open to riders between the ages of 9 and 15. There are over 100 fixtures that take place in the UK throughout the year held at various Racecourses and Point to Point Courses.

These meetings are an excellent opportunity for young people to try their hand at pony racing and with the Youth Training Scheme from the Pony Racing Authority you do not even need to own your own pony to have a go at racing ponies. This means that young people of all abilities, from urban areas and not associated with horseracing still have the opportunity to give it a try.

Over 150 riders have graduated from racing ponies to being professional jockeys, while a huge amount more have gone on to work in the horseracing industry.

With so many regular events taking place from both authorities across the country, the sport of racing ponies involves a huge amount of equine transportation.

The premise is exactly the same as any other horse, especially for NRT Horse Transport. Whether it is a champion thoroughbred on its way to be ridden by a world-class jockey in one of the world’s most prestigious races, or a pony on its way to a local point to point to be ridden by a young person trying the sport for the first time ever, our priority is always the same: ensuring the journey is the most safe, most comfortable and most relaxing possible.
