Rallies.                                                

When you get to the Rally, you will be placed in a “ride”. Your ride is the group of children with whom you will be sharing an instructor. Most Rallies start with a tack inspection – so make sure that your tack it is in good condition before you go! ALSO MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE CORRECT RIDING HAT THAT COMPLIES WITH THE NEW REGULATIONS STARTING AT THE END OF THIS YEAR

Rally @ Alnwick Ford Equestrian

We organise Working Weekly Rallies for our Members and they are either mounted rallies where you take your pony or horse or “unmounted,” where you go on foot.

We also train for progressive tests and achievement badges at our rallies, for more about which test you might want to be working towards, see the information available on this link to the main PC website.

Two teams of 6 players play alternative ‘Chukkas’ in Sections of 3 players per side, which allows the horses time to rest between their playing chukkas.
