Codes of Conduct


Coaches, instructors and trainers play a crucial role in the development of the equestrian sport and in the lives of riders that they teach and support. Coaches help to ensure that members of the Pony Club have positive experiences, and therefore have an influence on members to continue in equestrian activity and achieve their potential. The Code of Conduct for Coaches is built on the principles of integrity, honesty, fair play and respect, and sets out the standards that coaches are required to meet. These principles are integral and apply to all levels of ability and commitment with the welfare of members and their horses / ponies. See here for full info.


The Pony Club aims to promote the highest ideals of sportsmanship, citizenship and loyalty to create strength of character and self-discipline in our members. The Code of Conduct for Members sets out what is expected of members and what is not permitted whilst in attendance at Pony Club activities. There is also section for Participants at Equestrian Events. See here for full info.
