Pony Welfare

Pony Welfare is a priority within our Branch. We have decided to adopt the BHS Code of Conduct at all our rallies and events. The details can be downloaded from here –  Pony Welfare

We are also introducing the PC UK system to improve pony welfare across our Branch of the Pony Club. It covers the action that will be taken against riders who misuse a bit, whip, spurs, ride dangerously or mistreat their pony (including failing to warm up, cool down properly).


Pony Welfare – High Peak Hunt Pony Club Open Shows

The following safeguards have been put in place to ensure that pony welfare standards remain high at this event:

  1. The Secretary’s will check the number of classes that members are entering and refuse entry if the number is not appropriate.
  2. Posters will be displayed at the Open Shows reminding members to meet the welfare needs of their ponies.
  3. Welfare Stewards (Jenny and Lauren) will be on hand to advise on pony welfare issues.


Pony Welfare – Rallies

All ponies attending PC rallies will continue to be assessed at the start of a rally for health and tack.
