Mega Rally

WHAT ARE RALLIES?  

Rallies are Pony Club Competitions with riding, teamwork & horse management.  

At rally, USPC member teams test their horse management and riding skills against each other in an atmosphere of cooperation & fun!


Rallies allow members to demonstrate leadership, competence and independence.  Teams of Pony Club members test their skills without parents, but with the advice and support of judges, coaches and officials. Teamwork & cooperation are stressed.

In USPC Mounted rallies, members rally in teams of three, four or five riders and, in most disciplines, an unmounted Stable Manager.

Rally teams are usually selected by the DC, with input from members, parents and the club instructor. 


Why Rally? USPC rallies teach members about themselves, about supporting and relying on each other, about horse care and being a good sport when winning and losing.  Best of all, they are FUN, create memories and lifelong friendships between teammates.


For more information about the different pony club disciplines, see the USPC website page on Disciplines.
