WMA Pony Racing Update after the Berkeley Meeting

We had a great run at the Berkeley, some fantastic racing and really great to see so many faces I recognise now, and some new ones as well! We welcome you to the West Midlands Area and hope to see you return next year as well.

With only 1 meeting left before the end of my first ever Season, I have outlined the current leader board in the 138cm and 148cm OPEN Races for the West Midlands Area Championship Points Series.

We still only have one more meet to go, with prizes for the Novice and Open series being awarded after the racing at the Wheatland on May 11th.

There is still opportunity to earn points from the Wheatland race and some riders are very close together in the top 4 in both the 138cm and 148cm Open Races, so get those entries in!

Prizes for the Championship Series include WMA Championship Gillets, in Tweenhill colours, Rosettes and some chocolate too!

Entries for the Wheatland close THIS SUNDAY (5th May) by 8 pm!

Look forward to seeing you there,
