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.
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
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
