‘Rally days’ are our regular meetings and are held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month from February to November, including school holidays.  Pony Club accredited instructors (volunteers) provide supervision and instruction on thDPC - grinning ponye different disciplines including dressage, showjumping, sporting, eventing and show riding, as well as horsemanship.  Sometimes professional instructors come along to teach in a particular discipline.  Rally days are usually planned with reference to our Closed Competition Days, so that riders know what each competition entails, including preparation and familiarisation.

Rally Days start with gear check and two sessions prior to lunch and one after lunch, then concluding around 2 – 3pm. Our canteen is open throughout the day offering breakfast, morning tea and lunch.

Riders must pass a gear check before they can take part in the activities.   We have a point score system for gear check with points awarded for attendance, punctuality, correct uniform and cleanliness of horse and gear.  Only pony club uniform and gear that is approved by the PCA and in good condition will be passed.  The Dural Pony Club Handbook lists suitable tack for pony club.  If you have any questions about new or unusual gear ask our club captain for advice.

Any rider under 17 years of age must have a parent or other designated adult responsible for them on the grounds when mounted. Only Dural Pony Club members 24 years and under are allowed to ride at our rally days and competitions.
