    You can use them at rallies though so hopefully, eventually they will be approved for comps too!!

    It is up to the chief coach for each PC to allow or refuse the use of the saddles at rallies (just like suede chaps!)

    Cheers:)) :))

    Not according to the email I got from the association!! They have been approved,although they recommend peacock or breakaway irons and do question the use of the status version without a therapeutic pad.

    Thats interesting to hear that they have been approved, according to the council report they were not approved for P/C.
    Somewhere along the way there has been a mix up, not sure where though

    They've been approved for rallies but not competition (as yet!).I had a lot of trouble getting a straight answer but in the end got the offical ok from the horses mouth so to speak;) We use treeless saddles so it was a bit of a personal crusade:)

    Good luck getting them approved for comp. P/C is very set in their ways as you know.

    Haha thats an understatement!!! Doesn't really worry me though 'cause my girls seem to be veering off the pony club course anyhow,although now that they're EFA approved PC will surely(hopefully) follow suite!!

    Don't hold your breath on that one, Pony Club does what Pony Club wants especially where gear is concerned.
    My daughter is heading the same way, out of P/C comps and just attending rallies and competing EFA
     
  9. one of our friends uses a treeless saddle and has never looked back. ! she says ever since using it her horse feels more free from the front and even behaviour wise he had started to get better.
