A pony racing instruction day will be held at Aintree Racecourse, Liverpool on February 16, with Champion Headwear Ltd, a long standing sponsor of The Pony Club, as the new Pony Club Pony Racing title sponsor.

Members, parents, officials and instructors will get advice on topics such as feeding, fitness, etiquette and race day procedure. There will also be practical afternoon sessions, with tuition from The British Racing School and Northern Racing College.

John Ayres, chairman of Champion Headwear Ltd, said: "We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to become involved in The Pony Club pony racing, as we feel that this is a Pony Club discipline which will become even more successful over the coming years. "

The pony racing instruction day marks the launch of the 2010 Pony Club Race Day season, following a successful 2009 season, held across eight venues with more than 250 members and ponies attending. Pony Club Race Days for 2010 are already planned for Cheltenham, Wincanton, Lingfield and Towcester and Racecourses.
