New whip rule for 2022
NEW NATIONAL PONY CLUB WHIP RULE FOR SHOW JUMPING, EVENTING & CROSS COUNTRY.
 
WHIP RULE – see www.pcuk.org for full details of use of the whip

Show Jumping and Cross Country only – a whip, if carried, must be held in the hand by the handle with the handle at the top.  The whip must be ‘padded.’  The maximum length of the whip is 70cm and must be no less than 45cm.

  • The ‘contact area’ is considered to be two-fifths of the overall length of the whip and must be covered with a ‘pad.’
  • There must be no ‘binding’ within 17cm of the end of the ‘pad.’
  • The ‘pad’ must be smooth, with no protrusion or raised surface, and be made of shock absorbing material throughout its circumference such that it gives a compression factor of at least 6mm.
  • There is to be no wording, advertising or personalisation of any kind on the ‘pad.’

Narrow handled whips for small hands can be purchased from treehouseonline.co.uk – the Treehouse Showjumping Junior Whip (Black)
