What you need to know…

There are a number of Pony Club rules which have to be followed and there is some essential information which members need. You’ll find both on this page, which will always be a “work-in-progress” page. If you have information to share or suggestions to make please contact the Secretary.

1. What to Wear

Hair nets or plaits must be worn to every rally.

To help members bring the right things to rallies and camp we have adapted the following downloadable list from the Hursley Branch – our thanks to them! – it seems to cover everything for horse and rider: What to wear
