A local opportunity

The Newmarket Pony Academy, at the British Racing School, is a community project using horses and ponies to positively effect mental health and wellbeing for the children in Newmarket.

Newmarket, despite being the headquarters of racing, does not offer affordable access to children to learn, ride or look after these animals. These children see horses around Newmarket town and surrounding areas every day and the Newmarket Pony Academy gives them that chance.

Newmarket Pony Academy is extremely grateful to our initial funders.

The Sir Peter O’Sullevan CT, Godolphin, Mrs J Budd, Cheveley Park, West Suffolk Council, The Jockey Club Estates, Tattersalls, Orbit Housing and Lettergold Plastics.
