Haul In: Haul in can begin Saturday, May 5 at 5:30pm, unless you are ALSO riding in the Saddle Club schooling show on Saturday May 5.  Camping/Trailer parking is in the large lot before making the right turn to Saddle Club. There are no facilities in camping area.  However, Saddle Club does have restrooms and “The Cookshack” will be open for breakfast/lunch on Saturday, May 5 and Sunday May 6.

Optional Schooling Show:  Saturday, May 5th: Rally teams are invited to participate in a schooling show at the Bainbridge Island Saddle Club on Saturday, May 5th.  The schooling show is NOT an endorsed Pony Club event and no horse management or Pony Club oversight is provided.  Classes range from walk-only/leadline to 3-foot hunters, jumpers and equitation.  High point awards are offered for different divisions.  A class list and more information can be found at: www.bainbridgesaddleclub.org

Teams:The maximum number of teams will be 8.  Team acceptance will be based on completion of the online registration paperwork and receipt of payment.  Team members may be of mixed certification and riding levels. The goal is to provide a fun, safe riding environment where teams compete with one another.   DCs or the Club Rally Coordinators have the responsibility to place each horse/rider combination in the most suitable division. This will be a team competition, using team scores for overall and for horse management placement and ribbons. Multiple teams from the same clubs are welcome.

 Placements should be based on the recommendation and assessment of the competitor’s instructor or team coach, as changes after the closing date will be limited to emergency situations.

 If you do not have a full team but have catch riders, please try to form a team with another Pony Club.  If you are having difficulties finding enough catch riders to form a team, please contact Anna Swanberg (360) 461-4590, annat18@hotmail.com and we can assist in connecting team members.  Each club is responsible for sending in the paperwork and rally fee for the team members from their club.

We encourage and welcome each team to bring upper level pony clubbers who can act as mentors throughout the rally.  If you want us to match your team up with a mentor, we will be happy to do so.  The mentors are IN ADDITION TO your Stable Manager.  Although we prefer that your Stable Managers are D3 or below, we will accept C1 Stable Managers.  Mentors will be C1 and above.

Ribbons will be up to 8th place for riding and up to 3rd place for Horse Management.  Special prizes will be awarded to the top teams.
