of a booklet contend in a plastic wallet which is worn on the rider’s arm. This is filled in by the parent giving important
information about their daughter / son which would be essential to a First Aid person / emergency crew should there be an
The HHPC committee would like medical armband to be worn at all cross
country instructions. If a rider comes without their parents to any ridden instruction, they must wear a medical armband.
As in the event of a riding accident where the parent is not in attendance this information will be very useful.
Pony club rules state: these are compulsory for Cross country competitions,
Hunter Trials and One Day Events. Some members already have the armbands, other will need to buy one. This is a one off cost:
£3.25p each. ( unless you lose it! )These will be on sale at the instruction rallies.
Rule ( taken from Pony Club year book 2007 ) applies to all Pony Club mounted activities. For safety reasons, no jewellery (incuding “sleepers” ) may be worn, other than a wristwatch, stock pin
worn horizontally, or a tie clip. Branch members who are contemplating piercing their ears or any part of their body should
be aware that they will not be allowed to participate in Pony Club mounted activities until such time as the “sleepers”
can be safely removed.

Riding hat regulations
It is mandatory for all Members
to wear a protective helmet manufactured to one of the minimum standards listed below. It must bear the CE mark and a quality
symbol, either the BSI Kitemark, the SAI Global symbol or the official Snell label with number. The CE symbol on its own is not sufficient to ensure consistent standard of manufacture. The PAS 015:1998
and the Snell E2001 meet higher impact criteria and therefore give more protection.
015:1998 or EN 1384:1996
With the BSI Kitemark
Snell E2001 with the official Snell
label and number
AS/NZS 3838 1998 or
AS/NZS 3838 2003
NB The prefix ‘ BS’ on the EN 1384 standard does not mean that the hat has undergone batch testing by
the British Standards Institute- the hat must contain the BSI Kitemark as well.
Hats must be worn when mounted (this
includes at prize-giving) with a chin strap fastened at all times. Hats with vertical plastic / metallic strips are permitted.
All hats should be tagged with official
pony club label
