Please be familiar with these rulebooks and corresponding 2015 newsletters (if applicable)
Medical armbands are required to be worn at all times.
COMPETITION AND AWARDS:
Team members may be of mixed certification and riding levels. The goal is to provide a fun, safe
riding environment where teams compete with one another.
DCs or the Club Rally Coordinators have the responsibility to place each horse/rider combination in
the most suitable division. This will be a team competition, using team scores for overall and horse
management placement. Multiple teams from the same clubs are welcome.
******Riders, with help from their coaches and DCs, should take care when selecting divisions
as changes after the closing date will be limited to emergency situations. *******
If you do not have a full team but have catch riders, please try to form a team with another Pony Club.
If you are having difficulties finding enough catch riders to form a team, please contact Therese for
assistance with connecting team members. Each club is responsible for sending in the paperwork
and rally fee for the team members from their club.
We encourage and welcome each team to bring upper level pony clubbers who can act as mentors
throughout the rally. If you want us to match your team up with a mentor, we will be happy to do so.
The mentors are IN ADDITION TO your Stable Manager. Although we prefer that your Stable
Managers are D3 or below, we will accept C1 Stable Managers. Mentors will be C1 and above.
Ribbons will be up to 8th place for riding and up to 3rd place for Horse Management.
HORSEMASTERS DIVISION: Horsemaster members will have the opportunity to participate and
compete at this rally in their own division. Remember, assistance is not allowed between
Horsemasters and youth competitors.
