Are You A Member of the PPORA?
The PPORA is an independent members’ organisation. We are funded by membership income and commercial sponsorship. Our work is primarily completed by unpaid volunteers, supported by a part time paid administrator.
Membership of the PPORA costs from less the 6p per day for Supporters, and 7p per day for Owners and Riders, and there are lots of good reasons to join us:

- Join us on the “Road To Stratford” our 2018 – 2019 programme of PPORA Club Members’ Races, Contests and Awards. Combining tradition with innovation all designed to showcase our sport, its people and horses, as the excitement builds towards our end of season finale the 2019 PPORA Grassroots Awards Lunch. PPORA Club Members’ Conditions Races, and our new PPORA Members’ Awards, are exclusive to PPORA Owner and Rider Members
