We absolutely ♥️ this photo of one of our favourite BRS residents, ALONG CAME BELLE, shared by Hayley Flint in response to the arrival of Doppio Movimento, and it’s got us thinking… we’d love to see more of your Pony Racing photos!

Tag us in your photos and use

Have you got a photo with somebody who is now riding as a professional jockey?? Tag them too

We’re pleased to welcome DOPPIO MOVIMENTO, or translated to English, twice as fast, to our Pony Racing team today.
Muppet, as she is affectionately known as by her owner Harriet Bryce, and current loan home the Barrett-Atkin family, joins Along Came Belle as BRS Racing Ponies to be used for training provision and crucially the Pony Racing Academy.
At 17 years old she comes with a wealth of experience and is currently sitting on 49 wins. She has most recently been raced by Nick Barrett-Atkin but her list of precious pony racing jockeys include Gina, Bridget and Jack Andrews, and could be described as a ‘legend’ in the Eastern Region.
Let’s hope our next group of Pony Racing Academy riders can take her over the half century for wins 📸 Dennis Penny

Good Bye Gentle Giant

It is with great sadness we let you know that this morning we bid farewell to Tanager. Tanager was brilliant for beginners, and will be remembered by 100’s of you, without doubt, as a real gentle gi…

🎉 Congratulations to @clifford_lee1 who rode out his claim this week, which means he is has ridden 95 winners of flat races and is no longer an Apprentice Jockey but instead is a fully fledged PROFESSIONAL JOCKEY! That deserves a huge 👏👏 📸 @britishhorseracingauthority

A smile from HARRY KIMBER and quite right too, he’d just ridden his first winner!
Congratulations to Harry and the team.

A new horse flies in…. OK, he didn’t fly but we’re delighted to have EMIRATES FLYER join our team of 79 ex-racehorses. His new job will be to help train the future employees of the racing industry.
