Members are expected to look clean and tidy with badges worn at rallies, when hunting, at shows and inter-branch competitions. They are also expected to be clean and tidy when walking courses before competitions.

Unsafe Tack: All tack must be clean, in a good state of repair, properly fitted and suitable for purpose. Tack inspections are routinely carried out at events and the organisers may prohibit participation in the event if they consider the tack to be inadequate or unsuitable. Individual sports do have further specific tack rules which are detailed in their individual sports rulebooks.

Stirrups: 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.

Please be courteous.

Please leave dogs at home and take your litter home.

When attending rallies at Ystrad please park considerably in the car park, remember there are a lot of vehicles coming at different times for rides and need to get in/out easily. The farm is strictly out of bounds and children must be always kept under control.

Do not tie hay nets up to the outside of your trailers/boxes for your horses/ponies to eat as it makes an awful mess.

Clean up all droppings even if your animal didn’t drop them.
