Christmas Raceday is the perfect way to start the festivities so wrap up warm in your Christmas jumper and head to Haldon Hill to make it a festive day out to remember.

 

What’s more, we’re certain the big guns of the racing world will be bringing their horses to this ever-popular meeting.

Get in the festive spirit and be entertained by acoustic singer and guitarist Ollie Stephens across the racecourse. 

 

We will be supporting a local charity, Sirona Therapeutic Horsemanship in Dartington, provides equine-based educational and therapeutic activities to disadvantaged young people and adults with the aim of promoting increased resilience and social, emotional and physical well-being.

 

They take a person and horse centred holistic approach and provide a non-judgemental, experiential and positive learning environment that enables people to explore and learn more about themselves whilst employing a ‘positive horsemanship’ approach.

 

If you would like to make a donation there will be a collection on the gates and an information stand on the racecourse. 

 

Make the most of your day and use the FREE return bus service from St David's. Seats available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Find the bus times below or click here for more information.
