Christmas Rally 2018

     

Rallies – what are they and who should go?
The Pony Club defines a Working Rally as one where instruction is given and is open to all Members of the Branch within the age range for which it is intended.  Team practices do not qualify as Working Rallies.

To be able to represent the Branch at Area and Championship competitions, members must have been to a minimum of three Working Rallies since the previous 1st July. Camp counts as one Working Rally.

The Rally programme will have a brief information section about the Rally, for example  “Competitive Showjumping Rally” are intended for members who compete in showjumping, and will list the heights members need to be comfortable jumping.  If you are not comfortable at those heights then the “Jumping Rally” will be more suited to you.

We will be running regular Showjumping and Dressage Rallies which will be planned around competitions to enable training for those specific competitions.  These will be advertised on a case by case basis and there will also be a mixture of Rallies aimed specifically at Juniors and of a more general nature such as the Summer Friday evening Rallies at Wing Jumping and Dressage Centre.

Rallies:
Unless specified otherwise, our rallies are open to everyone.  They offer subsidised first class instruction at great venues.  Your first rally can be a little daunting, but don’t worry there will be plenty of people around to help.  Achievement badges are also a fantastic way to meet other children and parents and a nice introduction to Pony Club (and learning key skills).

Dogs
We all love our four legged friends, however quite often their cuteness detracts from the task in hand.  Therefore we ask that you don’t bring your dog to any Whaddon Chase activity.  Many thanks.
