Rally Groups

We run rallies on the first Saturday of every month, which can vary, but normally consists of two or three experienced instructors taking a one hour flat / dressage sessions, which may also include poles, at 10am and again at 11am. Riders will particiate in one of the morning lessons where instructors will help you work through any areas you are wanting to improve on. We then break for lunch (normally a sausage sizzle and a cuppa or cold drink) and a bit of socialising. After lunch those wanting to ride in the afternoon session will determine their preferred disciplines for the our one hour afternoon sessions. Regularly offering dressage, poles and show jumping sessions, but this is totally variable and could include a trail ride, XC or games depending on the riders.  These 12 monthly rallies are incorporated in your full membership fee.  Associate members are permitted to ride at rallies for an additional $30 per rally, if numbers permit.
