Changes to rally bookings and payments
So we have kick started our rally bookings online via Equo. Register FREE at www.equoevents.com to enter rallies quickly and securely. Once registered, you can book rallies from our Equo booking page >>
You can continue to pay for rallies by Paypal, but you must follow the usual booking process and wait until your space is confirmed before you make payment.
If you have any concerns, or are unable to use the system for any reason, please contact us.
Rallies for December, January and February. All rallies can can be booked using our new rally-booking system Equo.
Don't forget, you must re-join the club before you can take part in any rallies. Please clear up after yourself and your horse and make sure you park respectfully.
