For rallies we like our members and their ponies to be SAFE, NEAT and TIDY. It is not a requirement for everything to be brand new but would ask that the following should be adhered to:
MOUNTED RALLIES – YOU
|HEAD||A riding hat with secure harness, tagged with a new white tag if you have the old purple tag please can you get your instructor to check if it is the new standard these standards can be found on the Pony Club website by DC/Secretary. Hat covers black or navy blue. Girls hair tidy in a hairnet. No jewellery may be worn|
|GLOVES||Plain coloured gloves|
|JACKETS and SHIRTS||White or blue long sleeved shirt with PC tie. Tweed jacket or PC sweatshirt. PC badge worn with test felt behind it on left lapel of jacket. If wet a plain waterproof coat may be worn|
|JODHPURS; CHAPS||Buff or cream colour. If chaps are worn these should be a plain dark colour with no tassles|
|BOOTS||Jodhpur boots or riding boots - CLEAN please|
|BODY PROTECTORS||These are compulsory when jumping cross country fences and must have a 2009 purple label as these are the most up to date requirements|
MOUNTED RALLIES – YOUR PONY
|BRIDLES||Check regularly for wear and tear. Plain browbands|
|SADDLES||Check for wear and tear. Numnahs should be plain colours. Check stitching on stirrup leathers. Stirrups are correct size for child's boots|
