The working rally is the backbone of The Pony Club. A working rally is one at which instruction is given and is open to all riding Members of the Branch. It may be either a mounted or unmounted rally. An unmounted rally is usually for horse and pony care instruction.
Rallies vary in length from an hour and a half to whole day rallies and even camps.
All mounted rallies follow a rally plan which are tailored to the level of the groups of riders attending.
The plans include a gear checking/safety brief, a 'lesson of the day' , a horse management lesson and games and activities. The longer rallies allow for extra activities such as treks, hunts,competitions and quizzes.
It is at rallies that riders are encouraged to work towards gaining their certificates.
