Parents & members please note …
HOODIES ARE NOT TO BE WORN WHEN RIDING AT PONY CLUB ACTIVITIES. MEMBERS WHO TURN UP WEARING A HOODY AT A RALLY OR ANY OTHER MOUNTED ACTIVITY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO PARTICIPATE.
Clothing and Footwear
When mounted at Pony Club activities, Members should wear a riding jacket or Branch sweatshirt, jodhpurs with leather shoes or jodhpur boots or breeches and either leather or rubber riding boots, a suitable plain-coloured shirt with a collar and The Pony Club tie or a stock. Only standard riding or jodhpur boots with a fairly smooth, thin sole and a well defined square cut heel may be worn. Plain black or brown half chaps may be worn with jodhpur boots of the same colour.
Tassels and fringes are not allowed. No other footwear will be allowed.
Stirrups should be of the correct size to suit the rider’s boots. They must have 7mm (¼”) clearance on either side of the boot. There is a tendency for manufacturers to put a treaded sole on riding boots. These will significantly increase the risk of the foot becoming trapped in the stirrup in a fall which could result in serious injury. In the interests of safety, Wellington boots, “Muckers”, or trainers must not be worn. Boots and stirrups with interlocking treads are not permitted, nor are the boots or treads individually.. New clothing is not expected, but what is worn must be clean, neat and tidy. Jeans should not be worn when mounted except when specifically allowed by certain disciplines. Polo shirts in Branch colours are allowed to be worn at rallies and at camp, however long sleeves should be worn for all jumping activities.
