Rules, Tack and Equipment

Have you read these?
Please see the links below for the handbook and the tack and equipment guide.
If you are riding at championships and still unsure, please go and see the steward before you get on as they are always happy to help
Common Issues
  • Whips - Not allowed for Regionals or Area Festivals unless with a dispensation. You cannot take them from the warm up and into the space around the arena
  • Spurs - must be made entirely of metal and fitted correctly - pointing downwards
  • Bits - many new ones on the market, please check it first or ask.
  • No training aids in the test or warm up
  • Tacking up - check its all fitted correctly before you get on
Key mesage - keep your stewards happy - if in doubt go and ask
