  • To clarify any confusion regards rallies and Area qualification requirements. This quote from the Rule Book should clarify things.
    For Area Competitions and above, Members must have been to a minimum of three working rallies since the previous 1st July, one of which must be in the current year, to be eligible to represent their Branch.

    A working Rally is one at which instruction is given and which is open to all Members of the Branch within the age range for which it is intended. It may be either a mounted or dismounted Rally. A dismounted Rally is usually for horse and pony care training. Camp counts as one Working Rally. Team practices or coaching sessions do not qualify as Working Rallies.

  • HAT RULE 2016
    In January 2016 a new hat rule was bought out, please make sure you have the correct hat and don’t forget you must have your hat tagged for any competitions. Link to new Hate Rule 2016
    It is mandatory for all Members to wear a protective helmet at all times when mounted with a chinstrap fastened and adjusted so as to prevent movement of the hat in the event of a fall. This rule defines the quality of manufacture that is required. The individual disciplines also have additional requirements with regard to colour and type. It is strongly recommended that second hand hats are not purchased.
    The hat standards accepted as of 1st January 2016 are detailed in the table below:
