Dress Code


Correct Dress – What to wear is based on being firstly safe and secondly sensible. New clothing is not expected, but what is worn must be clean, neat and tidy.


Members should wear the Ledbury Hunt Pony Club sweatshirt. This should be worn over a shirt with Pony Club tie. A Ledbury Hunt Pony Club XC skin is acceptable for rallies. If the weather is warm then sweatshirts may be taken off at the discretion of the instructor however a long sleeved shirt must be worn.


Members should wear jackets which should be tweed or navy with the Pony Club badge on the left lapel, positioned (for safety) 4cms below the collar bone.


Pony Club badge should be worn for all Pony Club activities for insurance purposes.

Shirts should be white, pale yellow or light blue, worn with a Pony Club tie. Collarless riding shirts should be worn with the pony club stock (or a white one) if you wear a navy jacket the shirt can be cream or patterned with a tweed jacket

Jodhpurs should be plain with no logos and can be any neutral colour.

Gloves – black, brown, beige/cream. Gloves are used to protect your hands and give you grip on the reins. Gloves are not usually used for Pony Club games as you also need to hold the games equipment.

Half chaps/gaiters may be worn but must match your boot colour, Jodhpur boots with jodhpur clips (or elastic underneath) or long riding boots. Only standard riding or jodhpur boots with a fairly smooth, thin sole and a well defined square cut heel may be worn. No other footwear will be permitted, including wellington boots, “muckers” or trainers. Boots with interlocking treads are not permitted. When the boot is in the stirrup there must be 7mm (1/4”) clearance on either side of the boot.

Long hair should be tied back and safely secured. No long plaits down the back.

Jewellery is not recommended for safety reasons, other than a wristwatch, a wedding ring, a stock pin worn horizontally or a tie clip. Stud earrings are now permitted but no hoops or dangly earrings.

Riding hat/silks can be blue, black or brown (if you use a hat silk it must also be plain) and of current safety standard. For the current safety standards please refer to the Pony Club website. Hats must be worn at all times when mounted, with the strap fastened (and should be worn at prize giving too). All hats must be tagged.

Body Protectors: The Pony Club does not make the use of body protectors compulsory, except for cross-country riding and Pony Racing whether it be training or competing. When worn,body protectors must fit correctly, be comfortable and must not restrict movement.


At rallies we expect you to turn up with a clean pony. They should be fit for the work they are being asked to do and in good health.


Must be clean, in good condition and fit your pony. Check stitching to make sure it is safe. Black,dark blue, brown or white Numnahs or saddle cloths are preferred.

When going to competitions it is important to check the rules for the particular discipline to ensure that your tack complies!
