Doongala ARC share the pony club grounds in Sheffield Rd, Kilsyth, Victoria and meet on the first Saturday of each month. Our grounds back on to the Dandenong Ranges National Park. We have a huge all-weather arena, yards for the horses and plenty of space for floats and cars. We also organise specialised clinics in dressage and jumping as required by members. We are a friendly club catering for all levels of rider.
We usually hold 3 official competitions each year, a Combined Training / Dressage Competition in March, a Show and a Dressage Jackpot (Official) over three days normally in July. Dates for 2021 are yet to be determined due to Covid-19 restrictions.
We run rallies on the first Saturday of every month, which can vary, but normally consists of two or three experienced instructors taking a one hour flat / dressage sessions, which may also include poles, at 10am and again at 11am. Riders will particiate in one of the morning lessons where instructors will help you work through any areas you are wanting to improve on. We then break for lunch (normally a sausage sizzle and a cuppa or cold drink) and a bit of socialising. After lunch those wanting to ride in the afternoon session will determine their preferred disciplines for the our one hour afternoon sessions. Regularly offering dressage, poles and show jumping sessions, but this is totally variable and could include a trail ride, XC or games depending on the riders. These 12 monthly rallies are incorporated in your full membership fee. Associate members are permitted to ride at rallies for an additional $30 per rally, if numbers permit.
