We are keen at the Bedfordshire South Pony Club on encouraging and supporting our members to enter competitions in all disciplines, giving every member the opportunity to take part   

TACK

Please check your tack regularly for stitching that has become frayed etc ,also please ensure your stirrup irons are the correct width. There should be a half inch gap either side of your boot ,a rough guide is that you should be able to fit a finger both sides between boot and stirrup iron. this is so your foot doesn't become trapped if you were to have a fall. Recheck every time you have new boots or change stirrups please.

HATS    

PLEASE CHECK YOUR HAT IS TAGGED IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO GET YOUR HAT TAGGED. PLEASE SEE SYLVI OR JO  

SPUR CARDS

If you want a Spur Card please let Sylvi or Jo know. Spur Cards will only be issued if the rider has a secure lower leg, as spurs can do an awful lot of damage.                   

TEAM SELECTION

Team selection will not be on ability only.  We will consider your previous competition history, team spirit and commitment!. It is important that all competitors and parents are committed to the team and must always endeavour to attend rallies and team training where possible.  Preference will be given to those members who do attend training.
