Pleasure Riding Award Scheme
If you would like to earn lovely rosettes for riding your donkey, join the Pleasure Riding Award Scheme. You will receive a log book to record your riding time and on attaining 25 riding hours, and multiples thereafter, you will receive a lovely rosette. The joining fee is £4.00 and covers up to 50 miles – or the first two rosettes. You can log your riding in minutes – you don’t have to ride for an hour at a time – and it is surprising how the time adds up. You can count time in the show ring (and the collecting ring), gymkhana games, hacking out – anywhere you are riding your donkey. There is no upper or lower age limit, but please observe the height/weight regulations:
up to 10.2hh(105cms): not over 8stone(50kgs) + 4’0″(120cms)
10.2-11.0hh(105-110cms): not over 8stone(50kgs) + 4’6″(135cms)
11.0-12.0hh(110-120cms): not over 9stone(57kgs) + 5’0″(150cms)
12.0-14.0hh(120-140cms): not over 10stone(63kgs)+5’6″(165cms)
over 14hh(140cms): no restrictions
PRAS Administrator is Mrs Cheryl Browning, firstname.lastname@example.org. The application form and joining fee should be sent to the Society Secretary, Carol Morse, at Donkey Breed Society, The Hermitage, Pootings, Ednenbridge, Kent TN8 6SD.
