Rally Dates 2021

Dates to be posted here soon. Watch this space…


XC Technique Rallies – 80, 90, 100, 100+

We will organise XC rallies throughout the year weather dependant.  These rallies will be held at Somerford and Smallwood Livery centre.  We will also consider holding rallies at Kelsall if members express an interest in trying a different venue.  During the winter and until mid February the rallies will be held on the Showground Arenas at Somerford.  The main 80 acres schooling field should open in early March so the March Rally will be on grass.

The rallies will be for those members who are confidently jumping solid XC fences 80, 90, 100 & 100+.  We advise that at this level all ponies/horses should be shod all round, with studs at the owners discretion.

Here are a few of the instructors we will be using in 2020.  They will be varied depending upon their own eventing schedule:-

Dee Hankey

Michael Owen

Any Lennon

Emma Silman

Andrea Ash

Richard Long

David Llewellyn

Mini XC Technique Rallies 55-80cm

We will put on some Mini eventing rallies for those confidently jumping solid fences at 55-80cm.   Members must also be able to control their pony in open spaces.

These will, weather permitting, be on grass either at Smallwood Livery centre or the new Grassroots Development Zone at Somerford.  We will arrange instructors for these rallies in due course, but they will have XC experience.

Entry Information

All entries will be via Entrymaster.  Please provide as much information as you can about your experience so we can make sure you are grouped appropriately.

Entries will be limited and will be taken on a first come first service basis.  A wait list will operate once the classes are full so please text your details to Sally Harris – 07775 882632.

Refunds – we are unable to offer a refund or carry over any entry, if withdrawn after the closing date.  An exception to this is where we are able to find a replacement.   If you do need to withdraw please provide as much notice as possible.

If the venue cancel the event as result of the weather or for any other reason, we will move your entry to another XC rally of your choice.


Times will be text 2 days before each rally – but we will indicate on Entrymaster the time slot for each height i.e., 2-3pm 80-90 cm so you can plan your rally.
