PPORA Race Eligibility Reminder – Planning to enter or ride in a PPORA Race? – Owners – Keepers – Riders
Are you planning to enter or ride in a PPORA Race (including the PPORA Dodson & Horrell PPORA Novice Riders’ Series)?
Please remember that PPORA Membership is a Race Condition for these races – please see below for details
Please also note that the deadlines for completing membership form part of the Race Conditions and we are therefore unable to extend these timelines
Owners: you must be a 2017 -2018 / 2017 -2020 Owner Member OR 2017 – 2018 Rider Member OR Life/Honorary Member of the PPORA by 1pm on the Wednesday following the close of entries (unless otherwise specified in the Race Conditions which can be found in The Planner)
If you are part of a syndicate / group / or other co-ownership arrangement please check our FAQS to see how these requirements apply to you and your horse
We also suggest that you check with your intended jockey to ensure that they are aware of the rider eligibility requirements shown below:
Riders: to ride in a PPORA race you must be 2017 -2018 / 2017 -2020 Owner Member OR 2017 – 2018 Rider Member OR Life/Honorary Member of the PPORA by the time of declaration.
You can join on line by clicking here Join the PPORA or by ticking the PPORA Annual Membership Box on your RQC
Please note the following information if joining when you submit your RQC:
- If you are a first season rider your PPORA membership is automatic and free – unless you tick the opt out box on the RQC
- All other riders wishing to join via the RQC must include the £25 cost of PPORA Rider Membership with their payment to the PPA
- Please note that RSS funds cannot be used to pay for PPORA Membership so if you are paying for your RQC using RSS funds you must include a cheque for £25 with your RQC
We strongly recommend you complete your membership ahead of raceday – we do not have facilities to process memberships on the course on the day
Keepers: if you are the Keeper of a horse entered in a PPORA Race to avoid any potential eligibility issues you may wish to check that the owner and rider are aware of the Race Conditions for PPORA Races – this is especially important if you make entries on your owner’s behalf
Regrettably if these eligibility requirements are not satisfied your horse will not be eligible to run / you will not be eligible to ride
Please also note we are required to complete post-race owner & rider eligibility checks on all runners in PPORA Races, & to report breaches of the conditions to the BHA
