A number of our Pony racers enjoyed an educational day at Leicester Racecourse.
Oli MacPhail and the Racing to Schools program gave a fantastic insight into a race day. The children went into areas of the racecourse the public are not normally privy to, including the sauna, receiving wonderful tuition along the way.

The Midlands Area is hosting a PRA Taster Day on September 25th, at Holdenby North Lodge, Holdenby, Northants, by kind invitation of Mrs Pam Saunders, and Mr and Mrs Gerald Bailey.
