Treehouse Sporting Colours continues pony racing sponsorship for 2020

pony racing finals at Garthorpe

Treehouse Sporting Colours have agreed to support PtP Pony Racing during the 2020 season and will be supporting the Rider Championships and the Championship Finals. The season kicks off at the Heythrop point-to-point at Cocklebarrow, on Sunday 26th January and runs through until the last fixture of the season on Saturday 13th  June, the Torrington Farmers at Umberleigh in the Devon & Cornwall Area. All in all, there are sixty-nine point-to-point pony racing fixtures due to be staged. Points will be awarded for all wins and placings.

The Point to Point  National Pony Racing Championships will once again be held at the Meynell and South Staffs Point to Point at Garthorpe on Saturday 6th June.

There is also a Midlands Area Leading Rider award for the rider residing in the Midlands Area who has gained the most points.

The 2020 Point-to-Point Pony Racing Planner is a must-have publication for everyone wishing to take part in point-to-point pony races this season and is issued to all PRA members or available from Mrs Lucy Felton.

Pony racing is designed to encourage children aged nine to sixteen into racing competitively, with races held across two height categories (138cms & under and 148cms & under). All point-to-point pony racing fixtures are kindly hosted by the organising committees of those Hunts / Clubs who stage point-to-point racing and run in conjunction with the sport’s governing body, the Pony Racing Authority (PRA).  Since the sport became regulated in 2004, more than 150 riders have graduated onto horses both between the flags and under Rules, with many more also working within the horseracing industry.

Pony racing is a great opportunity for young children from a variety of backgrounds to have the chance to experience the thrill of riding in a race. It’s lovely to see teenagers coming through and making their mark in the professional ranks, and going into other areas in the racing industry too. We wish all those taking part this season the very best of luck.

Lucy Felton, a Director of the PRA and who oversees point-to-point pony racing, said: “The generous sponsorship provided by, Treehouse Sporting Colours means we are able to put on a superb programme of point-to-point pony racing. The PRA is widening its reach to new riders – with training programmes designed for children who have little or no experience of ponies, and are therefore creating more opportunities for them to be able to get involved and ultimately have a go.”
