Rallies

  • 1st Sunday of the month - Trail Rides (from Club grounds or other pre-determined location) and Games/Other activities on Club grounds for those who don't wish to trail ride.
  • 1st Thursday of the month - Mid-week Instruction Rallies
  • 3rd Sunday of the month - Sunday Instruction Rallies

To attend a rally, please book with the rally coordinators by Monday night prior to the rally, via email. This is essential so the rally coordinators can book enough instructors and arrange group sizes. You need to advise the rally coordinators which lesson(s) you wish to ride in e.g. dressage, flat only, flat and poles or jumping. Please also advise if there is anything specific that the coordinator and instructor may need to be aware of;  e.g. whether you or  your horse are recovering from an injury,  you are a new member or have a new horse in unfamilair territory.
