The Pony Club Hat Rule 2015

Hat rules are constantly being updated. Please check The Pony Club Hat Rule 2015, and make sure your hat qualifies. If you are going to buy a new hat, it’s a good idea to read the Rule carefully, print it out and take it with you to the shop to ensure you don’t buy a hat which will not be usable in 2016.

Rule change regarding the wearing of Air Jackets 2015

                                       

The Pony Club’s rule number 16. IV. Body Protectors is immediately amended with regard to air jackets. Previously it was always compulsory to wear a body protector if the Member was wearing an air jacket. With immediate effect this rule now only applies in cross country and Pony Racing. In any other circumstances air jackets may now be worn without a body protector.

If a Member chooses to wear a combined air jacket and body protector they do not have to wear a separate body protector as well. A combined air jacket and body protector satisfies the requirements of the rule.

The rule will now read as follows (the amendment is written in red):

Rule 16

IV. Body Protectors

The Pony Club does not make the use of body protectors compulsory, except for all cross-country riding and Pony Racing whether it be training or competing. For general use, the responsibility for choosing body protectors and the decision as to their use must rest with Members and their parents. It is recommended that a rider’s body protector should not be more than 2% of their body weight. When worn, body protectors must fit correctly, be comfortable, and must not restrict movement.

Riders who choose to use the Woof Wear Body Cage EXO must lodge a key with the event organiser when they collect their number.

If a rider chooses to wear an air jacket in cross country or Pony Racing it must only be used in addition to a normal body protector. Parents and Members must be aware that riders may be permitted to continue after a fall in both competition and training rides. In the event of a fall, it must be fully deflated or removed before continuing, the conventional body protector will continue to give protection. Air jackets must not be worn under a jacket and number bibs should be fitted loosely or with elasticated fastenings over the air jacket.

When an air jacket inflates, the sudden noise startles horses in the immediate vicinity, thereby causing difficulties for the other members of a ride during a group ride in a confined area, e.g. an indoor school or outdoor ménage. Air jackets are therefore discouraged for group rides.

Best Wishes,

The Pony Club
