Racing Victoria’s Saddle Up School Holiday Program is a fun and engaging all day program, providing a range of horse-related activities for primary aged children which is held at Victoria’s most picturesque racecourses over each of the school holidays.


The range of activities offered for each child taking part in the program include:

• Learning to ride a horse
• Meeting a thoroughbred horse
• Designing their own noodle horses, jockey colours or goggles ready to compete in the Saddle Up Cup
• Taking part in a variety of supervised group sporting and art activities
• Having their photo taken with their parents and an iconic trophy

All activities are facilitated by Racing Victoria and Kelly Sports with a cost of $80 per child including GST.

Following the recent Saddle Up School Holiday Program Winter Series which was held over the July holiday period where Racing Victoria hosted the experience at Flemington, The Valley, Geelong, Caulfield, Pakenham and Werribee Racecourses, we are excited to be planning for the next edition of the program.
