Hat Rules 2019
Body Protector Rules 2019

For mounted working rallies you should wear a Woodland polo shirt and sweatshirt or a white shirt and tie with a hacking jacket. Jodhpurs’ should be beige or a plain dark colour (black, brown and navy blue are all acceptable). If your hair is shoulder length or longer you will need to wear a hairnet not only to be neat and tidy but because it is not safe to have long hair flapping! For any jumping activities, long sleeves must be worn, either a Woodland sweatshirt, Woodland rugby shirt or long sleeved white shirt/PC tie is suitable.


Hats which must be black or navy (hat covers are acceptable) must meet the latest Pony Club rules - click here for details.


For stable management rallies, riding hat, gloves and riding boots are essential. Please wear a Woodland sweatshirt & bring a notebook and pen.


Cross country rallies - Body protectors (download the PC rules here) and medical armbands (these can be bought from local tack shops or the Pony Club website) are compulsory for cross country rallies.


An air vest may be worn, but only over a normal body protector. It must not be worn under any item of clothing. For these rallies, long sleeves must be worn, but members are welcome to wear their own or Woodlands ‘colours’. See information below.


Spurs may only be worn by members who have passed their B test or have written permission from the DC.


Jewellery other than a wristwatch is not allowed. Earrings must be removed, not taped over; for safety reason in accordance with Pony Club Health & Safety Policy.


Tack need not be new but must fit your pony and be in good, clean and safe condition. You need to regularly check all stitching, especially around the bit, and at the top of stirrup leathers and girth straps. If you are not sure whether something fits properly, is safe, or is suitable please ask your instructor. Numnahs or saddlecloths should be plain black, brown, white, cream, navy or our own Woodland saddlecloth. Tack should be cleaned before rallies and it will be checked at each one.
