Dress Code & COTHPC Merchandise

The Pony Club prides itself on the turnout of its members and at COTH PC we encourage our members to take  increasing responsibility for this as they get older. Many of the rules relating to tack and turnout at PC events are made with safety and the welfare of the horse/pony in mind.

At working rallies each rider is given a score for their tack and turnout. These are added up during the year and the junior & senior members with the highest scores win a trophy at the end of the year.

Working Rallies:

  • Tack should be clean and well fitted and comply with the saddlery permitted in the Discipline Rule books.
  • Pony clean and well groomed
  • Numnahs/saddlecloths should be plain white, cream, black, brown or navy. Try and avoid logo’s other than the branch logo.
  • Jodhpurs – white, cream, beige, black, brown or navy
  • White shirt with PC tie and tweed riding jacket or navy polo shirt and sweatshirt either plain or with the branch logo. Please no hoodies.
  • Pony Club badge and relevant felt

Spurs

Spurs may be worn at Rallies and other events with the permission of the DC. Members who have not passed the B test need to have their membership cards signed by the DC as proof of this permission. This will need to be available for inspection at Pony Club events. Only blunt spurs without rowels or sharp edges may be worn. If the spurs are curved, the curve must be downwards and the shank must point straight to the back and not exceed 3.5cm in length. Sharp spurs may not be worn. Spurs that have a smooth rotating ball on the shank are permitted. The measurement is taken from the heel of the boot to the end of the shank. See also Rule 42 of the Dressage Rule book.


Riding Helmets

These must comply with the current Pony Club standards which can be checked here. Please note that these standards changed as of 1st January 2016.

Your hat needs to be tagged with a white Pony Club tag to show that it is an approved model. Red BE tags are also acceptable.

Your hat can be checked and tagged by Luise Harrison, Dawn Gage or Liz Hinton and this should be available at most Rallies. If you need your hat tagged and you are not sure when you are going to see us please contact us.
