After rally has concluded, stalls must be stripped and swept before leaving.
Remember to bring and post your stall cards and feed charts!
TACK & FEED STALLS: There will be one tack room per team and one feed room per team.
TEAMS: Teams may consist of 3 or 4 riders, plus 1 stable manager. Teams will be of mixed ratings, ages, and/or divisions. The Organizer will put together scramble teams. Teams may be adjusted according to entries, if needed, in order to preserve continuity.
CHAPERONES: Each team requires a chaperone. The form may be found here.
COACHING: Coaches are required for Riding, but are optional for all other phases. Each phase coordinator is happy to assist and lead a short warm-up session. All coaches must sign a coaching form. Please email to the secretary prior to rally. The form does have some errors, referencing dressage rally. Coaches must be familiar with Tetrathlon Rulebook for 2022.
*TRY TET: The Try Tet division gives participants to come and try tetrathlon in a low pressure way. You don't need to even bring a horse. In Try Tet, participants can participate in whatever division they like and can skip phases that you might be uncomfortable with.
RIDING: We plan on doing 2 separate jump rounds, back-to-back. One round will contain the slip rail. The other round will contain the gate.
GUNS / SHOOTING PHASE: If you are sharing a gun, please list the name(s) of anyone else using the gun on your entry form! Shooting will be our first phase on Saturday, so you do not have to bring your gun to Check in. Just bring it with you when you come to shooting. You should be using 0.177 caliber match shooting lead pellets with a flat head. Pellets will be loaded one at a time.
