All very well requiring track riders to be licenced and I think there is an age restriction as well , must be 16?? anyway I have a grand daughter who is 12 close to 13 and would be quite capable of riding track work on a quiet horse , she has been riding for 4 years and now competes in the jumping arena at shows on a very tough difficult to manage fast horse , perhaps the age restriction is wrong and 14 would be a realistic age for a rider with her back ground .
EX Southland times , A Southland trainer has stopped racing his horses because he can’t find a trackwork rider to employ. Stephen Blair-Edie has not had a trackwork rider since the two he previously employed left his Birchwood stable in western Southland in late February.

He and his stable hand, Shane Howe, are now exercising 12 horses in pairs, off lead ropes, from a quad bike in paddocks. “It stops them from getting fat and out of condition,” Blair-Edie said.
