US Pony Club Quiz Rally Study Group & Mock Rally
  Documents, Worksheets, Handouts


NOTE:  We are converting over to this new website, but we don't have everything figured out yet.  Until we do, some of the worksheet links won't work.  


These are some of the study materials, worksheets, aids, and documents we use to prepare our members for the Delmarva regional US Pony Club Quiz Rally.  The study group sessions are scheduled for the winter months, usually beginning in November and ending in February.   

These worksheets are NOT intended for self study;  they have been designed to be used in a leader/group setting whereby the leader will help the students complete the worksheet.  All worksheets are for the D level USPC member.  

Most of the worksheets are designed so a non-horseman can facilitate the study group with very little research.  However, that facilitator/leader should review the information beforehand and have the USPC manuals available for reference.  

The information contained on the worksheets are primarily from the USPC Manual on Horsemanship, D Level.  And some handouts are from the excellent websites of USPC Middle California Region and the Cohutta Highlanders Pony Club.

We don't mind if you use these worksheets for your club's study groups, but please retain credit to the author as indicated on the worksheet.  

And, finally, we are only human;  there may be a mistake here and there.  Please, send an email telling us mistakes you have found so we can get them corrected.

>  How to tie a STOCK TIE handout:  Honestly, there is no good handout for this - they all look WAY more confusing than it actually is.  Even if you know how to tie a stock tie, you won't be able to do it following the illustrations on the available worksheets.  There are several good youtube videos - show these instead.  For tying practice, we tore up long strips from a sheer curtain and a sheet.  This one is good;  clear and concise.  USPC - click here 

>  Riding ATTIRE worksheet:  In progress.  We had a lot of good sheets available but the rules have changed so much, and across the sports and certification levels, we are a bit confused ourselves.  We'll figure it out eventually...

Instructor Certificate   Study Group leader certificate.  I am still trying to figure out how to do Adobe forms, so this may improve as I learn more.  There are 4 fields you can fill out on this certificate:  1)  Club Name, 2) Instructor Name, 3) class subjects, and 4) the date.   Then print it, sign it, and present it with many thanks to your study group instructor.  This is an especially nice touch if you have C's come to teach the group.    (print on Cover/Card stock for a better presentation)  Here is a copy of a filled out certificate - click here. 

Mock Quiz Rally Examples, Samples, & Simulations

Below are Pony Club Quiz phase samples.  We use these for our MOCK Quiz rally put on by our club parents prior to the actual regional Quiz Rally.  These are NOT actual quiz challenges and any similarities with actual questions is coincidental.    

We want our MOCK quiz rally to be challenging, but the main purpose here is more to familiarize the member with the process and flow of a quiz rally.  For this reason we will also include in our mock rally:
- a faux registration packet, listing the times and locations of each of the phases:  click here for an example
- paper pinnys for each participate to pin to their shirt
- give a rally briefing
- put up a master score sheet (to give the team & captain practice at inquiry/protest.  We even intentionally post a couple of scores incorrectly, wink, wink)

Each phase sample includes pictures for each of the items being tested.  (i.e. The Mega Room sample on dental tools includes pictures of the tools).   Of course it would be preferable to use the actual item and with grooming, bits, tack, I suggest you do just that.  But if your club doesn't have the resources to provide a table full of the actual items, these simulations and samples will work well enough.
