Putting on a Pony Club rally is a big task, but USPC’s experts have compiled everything you need to know in one handy place with the USPC Rally Organizer’s Guide. It does practically everything for you—except run the rally!
This go-to guide offers tips to put together a fun, exciting, and successful rally for every USPC competitive discipline. It covers everything from budgeting to a 12-month planning timeline, plus tips for smooth scheduling on the day of your event to ensure everything runs like clockwork, start to finish. From the first arrivals on the grounds to awards and a final rally wrap-up debriefing, everything is laid out for you step by step. No detail is overlooked, including supplies, signage, and emergency planning.
The first section of the guide is universal to all disciplines, while discipline-specific resources are featured in the second section. The USPC Rally Organizer’s Guide is available to download in its entirety or as individual sections.
