We ask all our members to assist the club by giving at least 4 hours of their time each year to help at an event, or help set up equipment prior to an event, or dismantle after an event.


The Committee undertakes to have First Aid cover present at all events where jumping is taking place. In addition, several members hold first aid certificates. Typically we have a qualified Paramedic at all our show jumping and XC events.

The current rules about what Hat to wear, Body protector, Whips, Jodhpurs, Jackets etc, click here. CLICK HERE for the latest information.

Also see here Body Protector rules. CLICK HERE
and also, rules on Whips. CLICK HERE Any questions contact your team manager.

The Committee require members to always wear hard hats when mounted, and to be suitably & safely turned out for Club events. Recommended hat and body protector specifications are available here – click on tab above. Members are advised to carry out regular safety checks on their tack and protective riding gear.  For Members competing in BRC Qualifier events, your hat and body protector MUST conform to the current safety standards.

Hats – Remember, no Fixed Peak riding hats on the XC course.  And as from 1st Jan 2023, the PAS015: 1998 and the SNELL E2001 are no longer acceptable at competitions.

When using your protective equipment please use it in the correct fashion. For hats this means the chin strap must be securely fastened so that it fits snugly around your chin. If it’s loose, your hat cannot protect you as it is intended to, and you will be asked to tighten it or to dismount if your hat is not properly secured.

Navy and Black jodhpurs and breeches are now acceptable, along with White, Cream and Beige.

Jackets can now be of any conservative colours in muted tones, but not multi coloured of boldly pinstriped.

Whips for Show jumping and Cross country should btwn 45cm & 75cm, and not weighted, and the end should be padded.  This rule will be enforced at our competitions this year.  For Dressage, a whip of any length is ok.

For details on Spurs, please see appropriate section covering Dressage, Show jumping or Cross country

For XC Events, you are required to wear a Body Protector, and you can also wear a Medical arm band but this isn’t a necessity. You may wear an Air Jacket over the top of the Body Protector, but may not compete with just an Air Jacket. Non peaked riding hats (skulls) only. Long hair to be tied up securely, and jewellery to a minimum (simple band finger ring, stud earrings acceptable).

Body protectors must be beta level 3 and should state ‘level 3′ on the label, Purple or Blue date 2009 or later. Note that the rule on Body protectors is changing on 1st Jan 2024.

Show Jumping, it is advisable to wear a Body Protector or Air Jacket. Also advisable to wear your Medical arm band. Either peaked or non peaked (skull) hats are acceptable. Secure long hair and minimum jewellery.

Shoulders should always be covered, and preferably long sleeves worn for XC and show jumping. On very hot summer days, Judges at each event may allow riders to compete in short sleeves, and sometimes no jackets. You should approach the Event Secretary on the day to confirm if you are allowed to compete in short sleeves and/or no jacket.

For Dressage, a conservatively coloured jacket in muted tones, a tie or stock, and jodhpurs or breeches can be white, cream beige, navy or black, and for footwear your best boots. For the horse, a discreet numnah and plain bridle is in order. Plaiting is not obligatory, but it can set off the horse’s neck to advantage.

Where members are being trained by a visiting instructor it shows respect and professionalism to turn out rather better than you would for a hack, i.e. wear a hairnet and gloves, tidy jods and boots, and do not obscure your top half with bulky anoraks.


Plaiting your horse/pony is strongly advised, unless a native breed.
There are strict regulations regarding dress and tack for competing at Area and Championship events.
If in doubt, please speak with your team manager.


It is advisable to always carry with you your horses passport.

Drive safe everyone.


Parents, helpers and spectators who are invited by junior and senior members are welcome at all our events, and the Committee warmly invites them to join the Club’s band of volunteers. Please contact the Club Secretary on or 07866 613180 if you can assist us at any of our events.


Code of conduct: This club will not tolerate abusive behaviour towards horses, other competitors, or officials. Offenders will be warned and may be asked to leave an event. Repeat offenders will not be welcome at this Club.
Members must act in a sportsmanlike manner at all times and show all due care for their equine partners. Arguing with officials, strong language, dangerous riding and inappropriate or excessive use of spur or whip are deemed unacceptable.


A member may be issued with the following warnings if the Committee considers that there is a breach of the Club’s Code of Conduct with respect to other riders, spectators, officials and horses, or contravening the rules of competition:

(i) A verbal warning given by a Committee Member;

(ii) A written warning given by the Secretary;

(iii) Dismissal from membership of the Club


If you have a complaint at an event then please go to the Secretary’s tent and lodge your complaint there. If we are unable to resolve the matter there and then, or your complaint arises outside of an event, please submit your complaint in writing to a committee member. They will then take it forward to the next committee meeting where the matter can be discussed.

Remember the club and the events are all run by volunteers who do their utmost to ensure a safe and enjoyable day for everyone.


The Club has no objection to members riding another members horse. Owners of horses not kept by members but ridden by members at Club events and Area competitions, and using the Club’s training facilities, are invited to support the Club by becoming members.
