Black or Navy Jodhpurs

It has been decided, for a trial period, to allow members to wear either plain black or navy jodhpurs to F&D Branch Rallies and Training Sessions, along with the Beige, if you prefer. (An old pair of jogging bottoms or trousers worn over the Beige until getting mounted at rallies will keep them clean)

They must be plain black or navy, not check or striped etc.

For all Competitions and any Events organised by Area or other Branches the rule will remain the same for Beige.

Please Note: Hat covers should be a plain dark colour, black, navy or brown.

Black or Navy jodhpurs are available from Iona for £14. Please email with your size if you would like to order …
