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.
Helmet Standards: PCV is following Pony Club Australia and Equestrian Australia on Helmet Standards.
Please note that the full citation for the VG1 is VG1 (01.040: 2014-12). VG1 on the helmet label is sufficient to pass gear check.
The quick reference guide is strictly for use at competitions as a handy reference. It is also available in a laminated version from the PCAV state office.
