General Information: This Eventing Rally will be run concurrently with a USEA recognized one day event. As such, the riding schedule will be determined by the Event Organizers, rather than the Rally Organizers.

Due to the one day format of the Woodland Stallion Station Event, Friday will be reserved for stall and tack room set up, required equipment check, briefings and the first Horse Inspection. Turnout Inspection, Turnback Inspection, vet box and all three riding phases will run on Saturday. The schedule of ride times usually comes out the Monday the week of the event, but sometimes not until Wednesday. Since arrival is on Friday, it shouldn’t be an issue. Note that they start with the Preliminary division. An updated Rally schedule will be provided in early May. Scores will be posted at Startbox Scoring online. *Schedule is subject to change, with the discretion of WSS and the Rally Organizer*

Feed rooms will be set up in team trailers in order to reduce the cost of entry. Vet Boxes are required for the Eventing Rally, so members must bring a 5 gallon bucket for the vet box in addition to the usual required equipment. It is also advised that each team bring a tarp or laundry basket to the Vet Box, so you have a clean place to put your helmet, vest, and tack while you are working with your horse (to keep everything out of the dirt!) The Vet Box will be located almost immediately at the end of the XC, and more information regarding how a vet box is run will be sent out in a separate email. Please note that USPC has additional requirements for entering and exiting the Vet Box than USEA/FEI. Our CHMJ will cover this in the Friday briefing. 

Rally participants competing at Beginner Novice or above must have a USEA membership.
