Working Flat Rally Sunday 19th March

Don’t forget to get booked onto the Flat rally this Sunday 19th March. Upper Norton from 1pm. The instructor is Sophie Cox. £10.

This session is suitable for all members from lead rein up and not limited to those wishing to do dressage. It will be particularly useful for those of you wishing to take you C test shortly as Sophie also teaches the pony club tests and will be able to answer or go over any difficulties you may have (although this is not a formal training session).

If you are wishing to compete at Area you do need to start training early and would recommend you start sooner rather than later so you feel fully prepared and confident for the competitions in July.

Please enter via the Events Booking page asap if you would like to come.

Thank you!

Rally Attire – update

In our previous post about rally attire we mentioned that Pony Club were considering relaxing the rule about wearing small stud earring at Rallies and other events. This is NOT the case - the 2017 PC rules do NOT allow for the wearing of jewellery. This was decided by the PC Equestrian Council.

Sorry for any confusion caused. Thank you.
