Rally

CPC RALLY

A foundation discipline for Pony Club, Rally encompasses the three disciplines of Dressage, Show Jumping and Cross Country. Added in competition is the aspect of Stable Management. Together, the four phases allow members to show off their skills as well-rounded riders and their knowledge of horsemanship.

A full description of Pony Club Rally is available at the discipline page of the CPC website: www.canadianponyclub.org/what-we-do.php?page=rallies.


Rally in Central Ontario Region

Working Rally is a popular weekend-long event that brings together members and their mounts at Saddlewood each spring. Riders have lessons in the flat, jumping, and the hunter ring or cross country schooling area. Stable management and hands-on horse care is an important part of the experience.

COR members enjoy the annual Fun Rally event, hosted each year in early summer by Toronto North York Pony Club. This event allows riders to participate in Dressage, Show Jumping and Cross-Country phases in a non-competitive format, each at the level of their choosing.

Central Ontario Region is looking forward to hosting National Rally, August 3rd to 6th, 2017. “Click here” for more information on that event, and there are some FAQs below.

FAQs as COR looks forward to hosting National Rally in 2017:

Can I be a rider in the competition?

Yes – if you are 13 and have tested fully to C level.

We didn’t have a Regional C Rally… how can I be eligible?

Riders are to have completed an Entry or Pre-Training level cross country course in 2015, 2016, or the early part of 2017. Usually this would mean having done a Horse Trials event. You can indicate your experience in the application which will come out in early spring.

Is it team-based, or can I apply on my own?

Ideally, there are teams of two riders, a captain, and a groom. COR should expect to have two teams, depending on total entries. Regional selections will come from individual entries received.

I’m not a C, or I’ve not done eventing. Can I participate?

YES! Non-riding captains help keep the team in order, and grooms are essential as Stable Management judging is a part of the competition. Captains and Grooms need to be a minimum D2. And, many of our visitors may not have grooms to accompany them. Finding yourself on a mixed team will see you meeting and working with members from other parts of Canada.

Being from the host region, do I get to ride my own horse?

Unfortunately, no. Riding your own horse for the duration of the competition is a disadvantage to visiting participants. COR riders will be expected to provide a horse (or pony) for the competition, and this horse (or pony) will be part of the pool. If you are a minimum C rider, you should be able to adapt to an unfamiliar horse. If your horse is experienced at the same level as you’re entering (or higher), it should be able to provide a safe and appropriate ride for an unfamiliar rider.

What are the accommodations?

We are hoping to billet, and COR participants from within reasonable distance of Woodwind South are expected to host a member or two and perhaps a chaperone. Most meals will be on-site as a group.

I’m not a Pony Club youth member. Can I be involved?

ABSOLUTELY!

-There will be lots of volunteer positions: tack check, announcer, stable management, steward, scribe, turn-out and trot-up judge… and the list goes on. If you already know you don’t have plans for the August long weekend, please put your name forward.

-If you have a horse or pony (or two!) that you’d like to have participate, we’d appreciate the offer. If you’re unable to go back-and-forth Friday and Saturday, you can move in on Friday morning, stable overnight, and head home Saturday evening.

-Sponsors are also appreciated, for: award items, program and ring-side advertising, food services, etc.
