The pony trots are a great way for children to have fun with their pony and a fabulous way to be introduced to the world of the trots.
Pony Trots Victoria (PTV) aims to provide a cost-effective and positive interest in the trots industry for the participating children and their families.
The Pony Trots Circuit runs from October to May, while non-cup races are held throughout the year at various racing centres.
Two pony trot races are run at each country cup meeting – a Prelude and a Pony Cup. Harness Racing Victoria (HRV) and local businesses sponsor these races. The season culminates with the Pony Trots Victoria State Final. Competitors qualify for this event by competing at the country cup meetings where they gain points for attendance, presentation and finishing order.
There are other awards and presentations that take place throughout the season.
Presentation of the pony is also taken into account and points are awarded.
PTV has a strong animal welfare ethic and encourages children to nurture and respect their ponies.
