Correct Dress for Riders at Mounted Rallies

Update 26/06/15

It was decided by the committee to allow members to wear the Polden Hills XC skins to the normal rallies it was noted how smart all the members looked whilst wearing them.  This change does not include silks please continue to wear plain, dark colours as in the rules.
 

 
The new 2018 rule books have been issued and we as a committee have had to make some changes to make sure we act in the safety of the members.  Health & Safety is a very important part of life and even though we appreciate some rules may seem unreasonable there are very good reasons for them.  These dress code changes only apply to the Polden Hills rallies for competitions please check the rules on the PCUK website.
