What can the PPORA do for you?
The PPORA is a fantastic organisation that brings together point-to-point jockeys, owners & supporters alike. As well as this, the PPORA strives to be a voice for our members, raising any concerns or queries you may have with the PPA. On top of the formalities, we aim to deliver fun, competitive days racing and a warm point-to-pointing community.
DISCOUNTS ON BRANDS
By joining the PPORA you will receive an exclusive discount for a range of both equestrian & non-equestrian brands, from Treehouse Sporting Colours to Skinners Pet Foods!
Strengthen the voice of grassroots pointing
The PPORA has a network of area representatives and is a 25% shareholder in the PPA (Point-to-Point Authority) along with the PPSA & MFHA. With this comes a seat on the PPA board, which gives us a voice in the running & future of the sport. We can address queries or issues you have to the PPA and get you an answer, acting as your representative.
eligibility for PPORA races
As an owner or rider, you will be eligible for the 60+ PPORA Club Members' Conditions Races held a season across the country. The rider and at least ONE named owner of the horse must be a member of the PPORA to be eligible to run in PPORA races.
a network of suPPort
Your PPORA Committee Reps are available to provide support, information & advice. You'll see them out & about at fixtures throughout the season & you'll find their contact details here.
strengthening pointing's future
We work with the Point-to-Point Authority to offer a range of rider skill development opportunities, including Jockey Coaching & Course Walks and we also offer all first-season riders free PPORA membership!
The PPORA holds an annual forum, where we invite “key industry figures” to answer questions from Members. Talk to your committee reps throughout the year and join in the Member's Forum at our AGM. Having been unable to hold this for the last two seasons, we instigated a webinar where we review the last season & look forward to next.
Join us on the "road to stratford"
The season consists of a programme of PPORA Club Members' Races, Contests and Awards. Combining tradition with innovation, all designed to showcase our sport, its people & horses, as the excitement builds towards our end-of-season finale! These races & awards are exclusive to PPORA members & winners are awarded prizes at the PPORA Grassroots Awards Lunch every year!
What our members say about us!
Jason Warner MFH
It’s easy for me to see the PPORA does a heck of a lot more than most people probably realise. They really do work hard for the owners, trainers and jockeys in our sport. I’m not sure those in our sport fully appreciate how much they do.
Cotswold Vale had a difficult 2019 point to point. If it wasn’t for the PPORA offering to help us, we might not have put one on in 2020. They really did help us when we needed it!
Owning a point-to-pointer is our hobby and we have had a huge amount of fun over the years. We love the sport, the friends we have made and the social occasion around each raceday. Win, lose or draw, we thoroughly enjoy being owners and will continue to support this fantastic sport as members of the PPORA.
