First Rally


My name is Anna Jacobs and I am 10 years old. This summer I went to my first Pony Club rally at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky, and I went without my mom. When my trainer, Julie Downard, and I got to the Horse Park I couldn't believe how big and pretty it is! I had the best C advisor – Caitlin Chase. She helped me get to where I needed to be and kept me from being nervous. Jumping was overwhelming, but dressage was a lot of fun and I had my best dressage test ever! It was a lot of fun being with my team mate Sophi. I learned a lot and made new friends and had such a good time! I can't wait for my next rally!

About Anna and Rally. Anna is a D-1 in Stones River Pony Club and her pony is Independently. She competed in the Midsouth Region D1 rally, June 18-19, in Division C 8-10 years old. Team members included Korie Ann Beasley, age 10, from Peachtree Farms Riding Club; Sophie Wiedmar, age 10, from Covered bridge Pony Club; Reagan Thompson, age 10, from Covered Bridge Pony Club, and Dot Daus, age 8, from Miami Valley Pony Club. The team all had to keep their area clean and organized for Stable Management, in addition to their riding events. Anna and Sophi Pierce, age 7, are both from Stones River Pony Club, but Sophi was in Division A 7 years old and younger. They both had the same C Advisor, Caitlin Chase.

D1s compete as individuals, not as teams at Rally. They are given appropriate assistance from a ‘C Advisor.’ A ‘C Advisor’ is a C1-or-above-rated Pony Club member who directs and assists but does not do the work for the D1.
D1 Rally is a Combined Test, which consists of a Dressage Test and a Stadium Round, or jumping test. Dressage Test is 2011 USDF Introductory Test B, ridden in a small arena. Stadium jumps are 12” height maximum and the course consists of 8 jumping efforts.
