There is only one source for Gear Rules and it is this book. There are no Gear Rules in the individual Discipline Rules or Event Schedules.
Having the correct saddlery and equipment (gear) is an important part of pony club life. Riders, parents/guardians and gear check stewards all need to know what is required. Compliance with Gear Rules impacts upon Insurance coverage for Clubs. Note the differences between rally and competition requirements. Competition requirements must not be enforced at rallies.
These Rules are reviewed annually, amendments are published with a new edition each January.
