Bookings and Purchases

Rallies and Training Sessions

All our activities can be booked through the CHHPC Calendar.  Rallies are listed by discipline,  as well as by date in the calendar.

Organisers contact details can be found on the Meet the Team page but you should have all the information you require on the calendar. Please remember that all organisers are volunteers and your email or voice message will be dealt with as soon as possible and calls after 9pm are not generally well-received!

Pony club uniform, hairnets, dark gloves and whip and all appropriate safety wear are obligatory for all members at any pony club event.  Tack must be safe, dark and bling-free,  you can see more information about what is required for specific rallies on the Tack and Turnout Guidelines section of our website.

A Rally  is basically a lesson taken by an instructor. A Mini Rally is likely to be a combination of flatwork, pole work, small jumps and may sometimes include working towards a badge. A 9+ Rally will focus on a specific discipline e.g. Show Jumping taken by a more specific instructor. These rallies are open to all members that fit the criteria stated on the booking form. These are fun and totally inclusive. We do insist that if you would like to attend camp or represent the CHHPC in teams that you attend at least 3 rallies in the year.

A Training Session is put on specifically for members aiming for a specific Team Event and is more likely to be invite only.  For example; all the team members who are representing the CHHPC in an Area competition will be required to attend a training session. Some Training Sessions will be put on for those wishing to start representing CHHPC in teams as well.

Booking Process

We now operate an on-line booking process. You can book one rally at a time or several in one go.   Bookings and payments for all CHHPC activities can be made through the website.

    • Bookings will be taken up to 72 hours before a Rally or Training Session
    • If a rally can only take limited numbers and is full at the time of booking, members can opt to go on the waitlist and will be notified as and when a place is available
    • Refunds will be given up to 72 hours before a rally
    • Times will be emailed to the address provided with the booking 48 hours before the rally. An idea of times will be in the information provided at the time of booking.
    • ALL attendees have to have paid for the rally online
    • If there are less than 3 in a group – the organising ommittee have the authority to cancel that group up to 48 hours before the rally

These guidelines are in place so that the organiser has time to create the groups, confirm venue and instructor(s) depending on numbers.

Events and Shows hosted by other Pony Club branches will be displayed on our Events Calendar. There will be full schedules, websites and downloadable entry forms.
