ALL riders of horses, ponies or donkeys (including Judges) anywhere on the Showground are now required to wear head protection (hard hat) according to the current standards for head protection for equestrian activities: All PAS015, VG1, BS EN 1384: 2017, ASTM F1163 04a onwards, Snell E2001, Snell E2-17, AS/NZS 3838 onwards.

EQUINE WELFARE – it is of paramount importance that all riders should be an appropriate size and weight for the horse/pony being ridden (within the showground). Ponies entered in childrens riding classes must only be ridden by the child that is entered to ride it in the class – A substitute rider may ride the pony outside of the ring, but they MUST be eligible in age for the class in which the pony in entered eg – Lead Rein – Riders not to have attained their 9th birthday before 1st January 2023.  Therefore, the age of the rider applies to the rider in the ring or anywhere on the show ground.

The Society reserves the right to take further action against any competitor whose size or weight compromises the welfare of the horse/pony being ridden; this would be based on the recommendations of the on-site veterinary.

Whiskers/Sensory Hairs

All equines should present with no evidence of whiskers or sensory hairs having been trimmed or removed (other than for veterinary purposes, in which case you must provide written proof from your Vet; this proof must be available at the Show if requested by a Show Official).  Sensory hairs are the hard hairs located on the horse’s muzzle and around the eyes, also known as ‘whiskers’ that are used for sensation.
