East Gippsland Zone fees
Toongabbie & District Club fees calculated at $18 per rally
Working bee Levy: $ 50 per family. This amount roles over if the family attends 2 working bees across the year.
All adults that accompany a rider to rallies on a regular or semi-regular basis must be registered as a Club Supporter and must have a current working with children’s card. It is expected of all members and their families that they will help with the general running of the Club at each rally. This would include things like helping set up and pack up equipment, helping keep the Club rooms and toilets clean, removing horse manure from the sand arena etc. Many hands make light work and this helps spread the load off the general committee who already have a large workload behind the scene to keep the Club running.
Pony Club Rallies
Toongabbie & District Pony Club Rallies are held on the third Sunday of the month, excluding January. Occasionally it may need to be changed to a different weekend. Offering a range of activities that involve different aspects of riding and horsemanship, as well as working towards the Pony Club Certificates. While the Pony Club generally have some set instructors to help with consistency of learning, different instructors are also sourced throughout the year to provide variety.
