Tips from…..“Gramma” Linda

…what Mothers and Fathers need to know
….. and for all team members

Going to Rally is like going to a year end dance recital or a hockey playoff. It is the highlight of the riding year when we show off all our skills that we have learned throughout the year. This event is for all our members- of any age and any experience!

Over 3 days, assigned teams will participate in 3 skill tests – Dressage ,cross country jumping and stadium jumping. We will have prizes and ribbons for the best teams. Our district is PEI and NB with invitations extended to all Pony Clubs.

The schedule of events begins on Friday morning with travel time for those who need it. Registration begins (at the garage) at noon. Meal tickets can be purchased at this time for both HRC meals and Bible camp meals for all of the other supporters.

This is a great time for parents, riders, grooms, friends and family members. Please let us know if you are planning to come so we can add up the numbers and have enough food for all.

Friday afternoon is the mandatory schooling over cross country jumps. Supper is at the Bible Camp. Then back to the barn for braiding of horses for Sat morning’s dressage. Then back to the Bible Camp for a good night’s sleep.

Saturday we have breakfast at the Bible Camp for all team members – Delicious!!!!
Chaperones, parents and friends are welcome too but must have a meal ticket.
AM…dressage competition
PM…stable management trailer decoration competition judging
Stable management displays………
This can make or break a team’s points. Judging is done on Saturday after lunch before cross country. All trailers are transformed into a tack room. Displays are judged on artistic presentation and neatness like a real, working tack room. Everything such as bridles, saddles and grooming kits are labeled. All team members contribute to this big display. Parents and friends are encouraged to walk down and view these works of art from 11-1 PM before the judging.
PM…cross country jumping in the back field. This is a great time for photos so have cameras handy

Saturday supper is at the Bible Camp and accompanied with swimming in the pool, games and lots of laughter before bed at the Bible camp. Lights out 10:00 PM.

Sunday, again a super breakfast at the Bible camp for all team members, friends and family who are cheering them on. Now, pack up and move back to HRC for stadium jumping. This is good for photos too as the ring is colourful with scary flowers, a judge’s stand and painted jumps. The judges are ready to present totals at the end of this. Riders go and dress in full dressage gear, horses get tacked up too (riders ride and walkers carry the team’s banner) for the parade up from the trailers to the outdoor ring. Again it is quite a sight!!! Lots of photos.

Each team of riders, Stable managers and grooms will have an amazing experience together. If you are on a team, it is vital that you be here for the 3 days. Talk it over with your child before committing. We need to know our numbers for the Bible Camp, breakfasts, team formations and the other meals in advance.

The order for the 3 events may change depending on the weather. Rain gear is necessary.
Parents should have boots available as it can get muddy in the back field and also a folding chair will make the watching more fun.

Clothes: PJ’s, sleeping bags or sheets, pillow, toothbrush, bathing suit, towel, all riding gear, helmet, boots, pants, flashlight, alarm clock etc
Dress code for all team members is navy blue Hampton Pony Club shirt, clean beeches, boots- clean and hair neat – at all times for the 3 days…

Jumping vests are required for all riders. These are very expensive. We have some older riders who will kindly loan their vest when it is time for the cross country jumping
Medical armbands must be worn at all times.
Medical staff is on the property for all the jumping.
Other clothes and a jacket for the evening games will keep them warm.

We will be looking for help as there are many tasks involved in running an event such as this. Your help will be greatly appreciated! The food committee would love help with the prep work too. Cross country jumps need a score keeper at each jump so jump judges are in demand.

This is always a fun event with many lasting memories……….
