PCAV Riders without Horses

If there is no pony available for the rally, have a child pretend to be the pony and be correctly handed a piece of apple or carrot.

PCAV Riders without Horses

Go for a walk and find a quiet, tied up pony. Have members demonstrate the correct technique for feeding – emphasising safety aspects. (Pre-organise and advise owner).
When the members have completed this first task successfully, 
they could have their first tick (blue and red ticks on you chart 
and their individual charts).
Charts for 'D' Subjects.
Before hand, make a chart for each of the 'D' subjects.

Tick with blue pen when a subject has been taught and another
colour when the member has been tested and passed. Keep this
record yourself and add new names as new members join the 
group.
  • Make individual record cards for each member. Old Christmas cards with one side not written on are good.

PCAV Riders without Horses

Allow the members to choose a card, glue it closed and make their individual chart on the back.

If they need somewhere to keep their card, it is a good idea to 
ask the members to provide their own exercise book.

PCAV Riders without Horses

Use it to stick in the 'D' Charts, pictures completed at the rally and any future projects, which can either be completed directly in the book or stuck in later.
