And then in small groups and escorted, riders will trot and canter on both reins around the 3 furlong canter track. Then riders will be allowed to canter/gallop up the 4-furlong gallop. The rally will end with a short debriefing at the yard.

Area 13 Pony Racing Training Day

Coombelands, Pulborough, West Sussex RH20 1BQ
Wednesday, 17th February

This is for any member 9 years and over experienced or inexperienced to introduce you to pony racing or give you more training and it counts as a qualifying rally.  I will consider taking younger children if their DC says that they would be capable of doing the training.
Depending on numbers there will be 3 sessions grouped as to experience probably starting at 10.00am with one session starting later. There will be a session on your feet learning what is involved with pony racing – fitness of you and your pony, tack required, what happens on the day etc., a session in the school and then progress to the gallops and this will take approximately 3 hours. Body protectors and medical armbands must be worn when mounted.  Please remember there is no water on site at Coombelands.
Cost £50 and time of your session will be emailed to you. Please send cheque payable to Pony Club Area 13 and the form below to: Mrs Sara Tremlett, 4 Barkworth Way, West Chiltington, Pulborough, West Sussex RH20 2PQ.  Tel: 01798 817476, 07831695311 email: sara@tremlett.plus.com.
