What to wear

A riding hat which complies with the current BSI standard, with no fixed peak.

Riding hats with fixed peaks comply with the current safety rule (up to 80cm cross country jumping) but we strongly recommend a jockey skull cap with no fixed peak because:“…there is research evidence that a fall onto a fixed peak can result in an over extension of the neck backwards with the potential for serious injury”.Chin straps must fit securely.

Jodhpurs, preferably beige or cream but any colour is acceptable for rallies. Beige or cream is essential for competitions.

Riding boots. Ankle boots with the same colour half chaps or long boots. Black or brown preferred. For safety reasons please make sure boots can slip out of the stirrup iron easily. No wellington boots.

Gloves are essential, summer and winter. Gloves should be black, brown or navy.

White, pale blue or cream shirt with the Pony Club tie or WHPC polo shirt or sweatshirt or tweed hacking jacket. Long sleeves must be worn if the rally includes cross country jumping. WHPC skins can be worn under polos, shirts or sweatshirts.

The Pony Club badge must be worn with the appropriate coloured felt beneath to denote which Pony Club test you have.

A body protector which complies with the current Pony Club regulations must be worn when cross country jumping.
