Your Horse or Pony

  • Saddle and bridle in black or brown (no coloured bridles or reins please!).
  • Saddle cloths or Numnahs in plain black, brown, white or navy with no coloured binding or lettering.
  • Girth in black or brown.
  • Boots in black, brown or white.

Please do regularly check your tack and stitching as you may not be able to ride if it is in an unsafe condition.

The ponies need to be well turned out, but not showing smart!  Clean tack in good order, which is well fitting is important as the instructor will check it.
