Pony Racing Authority
For a sport that has been formally in existence for less than a decade, Pony Racing has been remarkably successful in achieving what it set out to do.
As well as being an excellent grounding in riding technique and race day procedures, it encourages children who may never have even thought about shortening their stirrup leathers to turn their thoughts to race-riding, be it under the Rules of Racing or on the ever popular Point-to-Point circuit.
Perhaps as important as anything, it fuels the addiction and passion for racing which is so integral to the future success of the sport.
Essentially, the Pony Racing Authority is today reaching out beyond racing's normal parish to attract potential jockeys from less likely audiences.

Racehorse Owners Association
The Racehorse Owners Association promotes and protects the interests of racehorse owners in Great Britain and has a membership of over 8,000.
As one of the British Horseracing Authority's shareholders, it plays a central role in British racing politics and finance.
The ROA is a founder member of the Horsemen's Group, an organisation which represents owners, trainers, jockeys, breeders and stable staff.
The ROA was instrumental in launching the Horsemen's Tariff Scheme to recommend minimum prize-money levels, and prize-money agreements.
The ROA is also represented on a number of other Racing Bodies and Committees.
Racing to School
The education charity Racing to School delivers free, outdoor learning activities for young people from all backgrounds at racing venues nationwide. Working with around 200 schools and other organisations, the Programme will benefit a record 14,000 young people in 2018.
