Rallies are the backbone to the Pony Club.

Members are encouraged to attend as many rallies as possible where they will learn more about their ponies and improve their riding. It is also a great opportunity to meet up with other Members and have a bit of fun.

Members should check our Facebook or website for upcoming rallies and bookings can be made HERE. 

Rallies need to be booked at least a week in advance to ensure that we can book sufficient Instructors to give our members the best instruction. 

Members should arrive 20 minutes before to be ready to go out and ride at their dedicated time.

All levels and standards are catered for.

All rallies are subject to weather conditions. Texts/posts will be sent out if we need to cancel.

Booking In:

You must be booked in ONE WEEK in advance of the date of the rally. It is not our policy to disappoint any members but if you do not book in on time, you run that risk. 

If for any reason you cannot attend after booking in, could you please cancel at least 24 hours before the rally is due to take place as it may be possible to offer the place to somebody else.


Ponies should be clean and tidy with well pulled manes or plaited. Tack should be well fitting and in good repair. 

Riders should wear cream jodhpurs, Pony Club polo shirt and Pony Club sweatshirt. No brightly coloured Numnahs or clothing.

Long hair must be tied up or in a hairnet.

Pony Club clothing can be purchased from our itsplainsailing

Riders must wear an approved back protector and helmet. Members will not be allowed compete or ride otherwise.

For all Pony Club activities, it is essential that one has an approved back protector, helmet and for cross country rallies stocks are required. For championship competitions helmets need to be tagged to show that they are approved. There will be plenty of opportunities to get a helmet tagged throughout the year. Tack is inspected at each competition and competitors will be turned away if tack and attire are not correct.

Instructors will inspect tack at rallies to ensure it is well fitted and not in need of any repairs. They will also inspect turnout and attire of participants and will be encouraging all members to continually improve on their turnout.

Members need to familiarise themselves with the tack sheet. This is particularly important before competitions as what’s allowed varies depending on what discipline the rider is competing in. For safety reasons, Tack Inspection is very strict and there is nothing more stressful for a rider and their parent then being turned away for incorrect hats or back protectors, too small stirrups, too big girth, or loose stitching to name a few.

At Rallies, FOR HEALTH & SAFETY REASONS and to give instructors room we would request parents to keep off the course during instruction times.

Dates for Rallies will appear on our Website/Facebook and itsplainsailing. Should you have any queries regarding Rallies, please feel free to contact a member of the committee.
