The Pony Club Body Protector Rule

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. 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.

Pony Club Members Insurance

I am often asked by members what the Pony Club insurance covers and whether it is restricted to incidents at a PC organised event or elsewhere.

The brief answer is that

(1)    the insurance is personal liability insurance providing third party cover – thus what is covered is the liability of a member to others (including other members) for damage or injury suffered by them (and their property including animals) and does not cover damage or injury suffered by the member or the members pony/horse;

(2)    and the cover applies 24 hours and in all places

subject to exclusions.

Full details are available on the Pony Club website and there is a very useful Question and Answer page which can be accessed here:
