Rules & Notices

Refund Policy

Please take note of entry close dates. Late entries can not be guaranteed a place and can not be guaranteed until full payment has been received.

Entry cheques will be banked following close of entries. A full refund will be given for withdrawals before the closing date.

If an event is cancelled then full refunds will be given but if an event goes ahead then the entries will only be refunded as detailed above.

Hats

It is mandatory at Pony Club competitions for all competitors, including non members,  to wear a protective helmet manufactured to the minimum standard. It must bear the CE mark and a quality symbol, either the BSI Kitemark, the SAI Global symbol or the official snell label with number.

The CE label on its own is not sufficient to ensure a consistent standard of manufacture.

The PAS 015:1998 and the snell E2001 meet higher impact criteria and therefore give more protection.

For ALL cross-country riding (including Eventing, Tetrathlon, Horse Trials, tests and training) over fences a jockey skull cap, with no fixed peak, must be worn.

Back Protectors Rule

Back Protectors, Medical Armbands, Long Sleeves & Riding Hats suitable for Cross Country (No fixed peaks) must be worn for all Cross Country. Long hair must be tied up neatly.

Safety Notice

We have noticed that members have been tying ponies/horses to horse boxes and trailers and leaving them unattended.

This is not an acceptable practice and we would ask all members to refrain from doing this.

Polite Notice

We would ask all members to ensure that they clear up any pony/horse droppings that may occur when attending rallies and events at all our different venues.
