Along with the safety and care of our horses the safety and wellbeing of our participants, their extended family and the general public is paramount at the race track.  As such, industry participants are reminded of the RWWA Harness Rules of Racing with regard to children's access to the horse stalls and stabling areas on-course:

26A Children’s Access to stabling Areas On-Course [added 1/1/18] 

(1) A child who has not attained the age of 14 years may only enter the stabling area at a race meeting or an official trial where that child is separated from the horse stalls by a barrier preventing direct access to the horse stalls.

(2) A licensed person must take all reasonable steps to ensure that a child under their care and/or control and who has not attained the age of 14 years shall not enter the stabling area at a race meeting or an official trial unless that child is separated from the horse stalls by a barrier preventing direct access to the horse stalls.

(3) A licensed person who contravenes the provisions of sub-rule (2) is guilty of an offence.

Stewards will take action if this rule is breached.
