Here are a few of the items that will be checked by instructors at Rallies to ensure the safety of riders and ponies, and comply with Pony Club WA rules:
Girths: Ensure they are the correct length and there is room to tighten after 15 minute’s exercise.
Stirrup irons: Should have a gap of between 2 cm and 3 cm after boot is inserted to ball of foot.
Stirrup leathers: Ensure your leathers are well stitched.
Helmets: Up-to-date and to be brought to the Horsemastership session for checking - PCWA is still permitting the EN1384 manufactured between 2011 - 2015 only, unless it has the VG1 mark or other standard marks. Further information available here.
