Helmets and Body Protectors
Click here for a list of approved helmet standards
You must wear an approved helmet at pony club rallies and events. It is also recommended that helmets are upgraded every 5 years or after any fall or damage but this is a recommendation only NOT a rule and is not enforced.
Body Protectors/Vests must be worn in the Cross Country phase of all events. It is recommended (but not compulsory) that riders also wear them while jumping at rallies.
If a rider is diagnosed with concussion, a stand-down period of 21 days from Pony Club activities applies. Parents do not have the right to over-rule club or event officials, and prior to 21 days, suspensions can only be lifted on presentation of a medical certificate.

People from Pony clubs and associations must hold registration to participate in a number of roles. These roles include all committee positions and also general volunteers such as being a parent assisting/staying overnight at camp.
