The Saddle Up School Holiday Program

Warm up this winter with Saddle Up

The Saddle Up School Holiday Program’s ‘winter series’ returns this July, with a debut visit to Pakenham Racecourse amongst the offerings for primary school-aged children across Victoria. 

In partnership with Kelly Sports, Racing Victoria (RV) will run a series of engaging and educational sessions from 2-11 July at racecourses including Caulfield, Flemington and The Valley.

The program provides the perfect opportunity to get the kids out of the house, as they learn to ride a pony, receive lessons on equine welfare from a leading vet and compete in the prestigious ‘Saddle Up Cup’.   
The winter series will take place from 8.30am-5.30pm, at the dates and venues listed below:        

Tuesday, 2 July (Caulfield)
Wednesday, 3 July (Flemington)*
Thursday, 4 July (Werribee)*
Tuesday, 9 July (Geelong)
Wednesday, 10 July (Pakenham)**
Thursday, 11 July (The Valley)*

The cost of each full-day session is $80 per child (including GST).
