A: No. Riding suits are prohibited in the AHHS Youth Medallion Pleasure Pony classes.

Hats, other than protective headgear, are also prohibited. Back To Top

A: Within the Hackney Division, protective headgear is only required for junior exhibitors showing in roadster pony classes (both to bike and under saddle). See HK134.2, GR801.4, GR801.6 and GR801.7.

Q: Is it legal to adjust the overcheck on a pleasure pony during the line-up?
