Welcome to Lamerton Pony Club!

This page offers quick links to rules and regulations and any recommended guidelines for our new and existing members.

Pony Club Hat and Body Protector Rules 2020

Hat Rules 2020

It is mandatory for all Members to wear a protective helmet at all times when mounted with a chinstrap fastened and adjusted so as to prevent movement of the hat in the event of a fall. 

To unify hat standards across The Pony Club, British Eventing and British Riding Clubs, a new ‘aquamarine’ hat tag has been introduced from January 1st 2018.  White tags or BE red tags will no longer be accepted at any Pony Club event.

Body Protector Rules 2020


Body protectors are compulsory for all Cross Country riding and Pony Racing whether it be training or competing. If a Body protector is worn for any Pony Club activity it must meet BETA 2009 Level 3 standard (purple label) or BETA 2018 Level 3 standard (blue and black label).

We have included links below in relation to 2017 rules for Hats, Body Protectors, and Eligibity Rules for Area.


Club members take pride in their turnout and many senior officials and trainers have commented on members’ standard of turnout, whether it be at a general rally or at the National Championships.

All Pony Club branded clothing can be ordered at

We would like our members to wear the following at general working rallies:

Lamerton polo shirt/white shirt and sweatshirt (available from Sew Equestrian)
Pony Club tie
Gloves (riders not wearing gloves may not be permitted to ride)
Hair net (if applicable)
Cream/beige/navy/black jodhpurs
Jodhpur boots, with or without chaps, or long riding boots (wellington boots are not acceptable for riding)

Riding hats must comply with the current Pony Club hat rule (see link above) and must be checked and tagged with the correct white hat tag. Fixed-peak hats are not permitted for cross-country.

Body protectors are compulsory for cross-country and any show jumping practices and rallies where jumping is taking place. No member will be permitted to jump without a body protector. All body protectors must comply with the current Pony Club body protector rule (see link above).

Horse/pony to attend with clean, well fitting tack. We kindly ask that numnahs and saddle cloths be of a plain design in black/brown/navy/white.

Horse/pony to be clean and free from mud and to have regularly trimmed or well shod feet.

We kindly ask that pink or other bright colours are not worn by either rider or horse/pony unless as part of cross-country colours.

For cross-country rallies members are welcome to wear cross-country colours, but all members are to present with the correct standard of back protector and correct hat (note that fixed peaks are not acceptable).

Members wishing to compete for the branch should discuss with their trainer what is acceptable attire for their chosen discipline.
