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
• Riding through the Saddle Up Obstacle Trial Ride
• Designing their 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 Kelly Sports.

Following the Spring Series of the Saddle Up School Holiday Program which was hosted at Werribee, Ballarat, Flemington, The Valley, Geelong and Pakenham, we are excited to be planning for the next edition of the program.
