Bedale and West of Yore Pony Club Children learn about Horseracing at their Main Camp last Monday
71 Bedale and West of Yore Pony Club Children took part in 6 Racing Themed Challenges at their Main Camp last Monday Night. It was supported by Racing to School, Sam Trainor and Russ Kennemore from the Northern Racing College and Phil Kinsella from JETS. A team approach worked really well and the children absolutely loved it. It was an effective way to engage with the next generation of owners, trainers, jockeys, racecourse staff and racing grooms. Careersinracing provided information on careers and children were able to have fun, colouring in a massive racing job-themed colouring sheet.
Following on from this, another 30 pony club members and parents are visiting racehorse Trainer Jedd O’Keeffe on Friday and a variety of activities are planned including watching horses exercise, a yard tour, jockey coaching and yard based practical activities.
