There's lots for kids to do at Andoversford, starting with the racing.

Prefacing our Point-to-Point races, we're introducing up to three pony races for children aged 9-16. This is a great opportunity for children of all ages to be inspired by their contemporaries already learning how to become jockeys. The leading lights among pony racing jockeys have subsequently made careers in the real thing, like champion Flat apprentice of 2015 Tom Marquand. 

For younger children, there's a bouncy castle, ferret racing thanks to Rendcomb College, and dog agility classes all day to entertain. Plenty of opportunities here to test your own dog too. 

There's also a parade of hounds during the afternoon, a great opportunity to come and see the Cotswold Foxhounds, who are all very friendly!
