CLOTHING FOR RALLIES
Rules for rally attire are set by the Pony Club
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.
Long sleeved tops are compulsory for cross country rallies as are body protectors (download the PC rules here). Members are welcome to wear their own or Woodlands ‘colours’
An air vest may be worn, but only over a normal body protector. It must not be worn under any item of clothing.
Medical Armbands are recommended at all times, including hacking on roads, and are compulsory for all Cross Country riding, Pony Racing and for Endurance rides.
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.
If you require any help with booking rallies or need any other information about our rallies please contact our DC Emma Dag.
