Central Ontario Pony Club 2006 D Rally Results

Here are highlights overall results of the 2006 Central Ontario Regional D Rally, held July 30 at Woodwind Farm near Hawkestone, presented from the least to most difficult levels.  Details follow these highlights

“Rally” is the Pony Club term for Eventing, an Olympic discipline in which competitors must ride a formal Dressage test, a Cross Country or endurance phase across open country and over fixed obstacles, and a Stadium Jumping competition. Scoring is done on a penalty points basis, with all errors of course, refusals, rails down and falls counted as penalties. Penalties are also incurred for taking too much time, or too little, to finish the Cross Country phase. The rider with the fewest penalties wins. Placing ribbons are awarded for dressage, cross country and overall, with a “Clear Round” ribbon for all those who make no mistakes in the Stadium phase.

The “D” in D Rally refers to the minimum level riders must have passed in the Pony Club testing system to enter. There are three “D” levels: D, D1 and D2. To get each of them, Pony Club members must pass a written examination in horsemanship, an oral test of stable management, and a riding test. Each level competes in a different division at D-Rally, with Dressage tests, fence heights in both Stadium Jumping and Cross Country phases, and the time allowed for Cross Country, all adjusted to their skill levels.

At the D level, Alycia McCracken of the Simcoe Pony Club was the winner riding Mr. Handsome. Second place went to another Simcoe rider, Stacy Bootsma on Blue By You, with Lindsay Tucker of the Ajax Pony Club third riding Champagne Cocktail.

Emily Lindsay of the Simcoe Pony Club won the D1 Division on Tarragon. Second place went to Kristina Brown of the Maple Pony Club riding Flubber Bunny, and Kristen Wavryk, also of the Maple Pony Club, took third place on Faolin Ruadh.

At th D2 level, the highest in this competition, the winner was Hannah Bailey of the Victoria Pony Club riding Let’s Rumba. Jennifer McKeen of the Oshawa Pony Club was second aboard Mya, and third place went to Kim Simerson of the Simcoe Pony Club on My Maria.

One major difference between Pony Club rallies and “regular” events is that Pony Club members compete in horse care/stable management on a Branch team basis, as well as individually in the riding phases. (At nearly every facility we use, the owners/operators tell us they wish regular events would add this as a competitive factor.) This year’s Stable Management Award winner was the Ajax Pony Club, with Victoria second and Whitchurch third.

Now the details to 10th place overall.
