At the end of every year, all clubs in the zone attend a weekend competition and this is often the highlight of the year for many pony clubbers. The 'Grand Finale' of the pony club year. The jamboree is usually held on the first weekend of December.
During the two days there are about 18 events including hacking, sporting and showjumping. Ribbons are awarded for each event in each age group and at the end of the weekend the overall age champion and reserve champions are awarded. Trophies are also presented to clubs for the highest point scoring club, the highest average point scoring club, the top 5 riders from the one club and the grand parade and certificate work trophy.
However, the weekend is not merely a
competition and is intended to promote friendships and understanding
amongst all members. Everyone is encouraged to camp overnight and join
in group activities.
Riders wishing to enter MUST have ridden on the same horse at three Rally Days to be eligible.
