  • The cross country course will be closed from 21st August before the ODE and Tetrathlon on 5th September.

 

  • To clarify any confusion regards rallies and Area qualification requirements. This quote from the Rule Book should clarify things.
    For Area Competitions and above, Members must have been to a minimum of three working rallies since the previous 1st July, one of which must be in the current year, to be eligible to represent their Branch.
    A working Rally is one at which instruction is given and which is open to all Members of the Branch within the age range for which it is intended. It may be either a mounted or dismounted Rally. A dismounted Rally is usually for horse and pony care training. Camp counts as one Working Rally. Team practices or coaching sessions do not qualify as Working Rallies.
