Checking your tack is correct

Here are a few of the items that will be checked by instructors at Rallies to ensure the safety of riders and ponies, and comply with Pony Club WA rules:

  • Girths: Ensure they are the correct length and there is room to tighten after 15 minute’s exercise.

  • Stirrup irons: Should have a gap of between 2 cm and 3 cm after boot is inserted to ball of foot.

  • Stirrup leathers: Ensure your leathers are well stitched.

  • Helmets: Up-to-date and to be brought to the Horsemastership session for checking
