Stall deposits: We are not requiring stall deposits. Please note that if your stall is not left clean a fee of $75 will be assessed and this will prevent future participation in rallies and other Pony Club events until it is paid.

Note: If stall walls are tampered with in any way (staples, nails, screw eyes, etc.) the entire team will be responsible for payment to Carolina Region regardless of whether or not the stalls are cleaned.
