Devon and Cornwall pony race entry infoEntries close a week in advance (ie if the races are on a Saturday, the entry must be received by 10pm the previous Saturday) with Claire Wright, Barn Lane Farm, Stoke Rivers, Barnstaple EX32 7LD.If it is the first time you are entering the pony in question in a race in the Devon and Cornwall point to point pony race series please include a photocopy of your pony;'s passport, JMB height certificate, and vaccination details. Include a cheque for £15 made out to the host hunt and an SAE. Claire will send you a list of entries and a timetable of the raceday, once entries have closed and been checked. Entries will not be accepted without any of the above being in order. NO EXCEPTIONS - which sounds harsh but it is the only way to be fair to everyone.Please ring Claire 01598 710495 to check your entry has been received prior to closing if you are worried.If the race is oversubscribed a balloting out process will be put in place, with ponies qualified with the host hunt taking precedence (in the final D and C riders will take precedence). In theory a race could be divided but it is unrealistic to expect the host hunt to be able to find another sponsor for rosettes and prizes, and we are not allowed to hamper the arrangements for the point to point which must start on time.You still need to have your pony passport, height cert available for checking at declaration on the day.Please be aware that the PRA are arranging for ponies to be randomly drug tested during the season (check your horse feed meets current requirements) and there will be random height checks by a team of vets provided by the PRA.
