General Rules

Riders must be correctly dressed; tack must be safe to use and adhere to the Pony Club rules regarding equipment allowed for show jumping. Parents/trainers should make themselves aware of these rules. A brief tack check at a safe distance will take place, but the responsibility will lie with guardians/riders if the tack is unsafe as we will not be able to check stitching, etc.

The organisers have taken every precaution to ensure the health and safety of everyone present. For these measures to be effective everyone must take all reasonable precautions to avoid and prevent accidents occurring and must obey the instructions of the organiser and all officials and stewards. Save for any matter in respect of which it would be unlawful for the organiser to exclude or restrict liability, neither the organisers of this event, nor the Pony Club, nor any agent, employee or representative of these bodies, nor the landlord or the tenant of the site, accept any liability for any accident, loss, damage, illness or injury to horses, owners, riders, spectators, land, vehicles or trailers, their contents or accessories, or any other person or property whatsoever, whether caused by their negligence, breach of contract or in any other way whatsoever. Entries are only accepted on this basis.

The Judge’s decision is final.

The Organisers reserve the right to refuse entry without stating a reason and also to eliminate any competitor who in their opinion places themselves or others in danger or fails to observe the rules.
