This event is in the past.
LEVEL: You must be intermediate or above and be able to canter. If you are not quite intermediate but would really like to join please send an email to the secretary with some details about your riding experience. If there are spaces left we may open it up to more novice riders who are learning to canter.
In the morning there will be gymkhana training to hone your skills. We will be learning how to get on and of at SPEED, picking up balls at SPEED, droping things in buckets at SPEED, as well at neck reining and a whole lot of other stuff. Of course when we say SPEED, that could mean walk or canter, depending on both you and your pony's skill!
In the afternoon there will be lots of races to practice your new found skills, there will be rosettes and cookies!!
You will be expected to tack up and generally look after the pony that you are assigned to which you will share with another rider, this will involve grooming, tacking up, washing down and skipping out. Help will be on hand where needed, but this is an intermediate level Rally so you are expected to be able to complete these tasks.
We will not be providing lunch but there are soft drink machines and both McDonalds and Pizza Hut deliver if you do not wish to bring a packed lunch.
