We look forward to welcoming you and your horse to Pengraig.
Our training days are meant to be all inclusive and therefore pretty much any type of “dress” is acceptable for the human; traditional, western, or continental. attire is all acceptable. Please note however, suitable footwear must be worn at all times and you will need to wear an approved riding hat when riding.
You will need either a cavesson or rope halter for the unmounted training session and a schooling whip is useful. You will also need a saddle and bridle for the ridden sessions. Although in competition a bit must be used, on our training days you can chose to ride bitless if preferred.
In competition the rules on dress and tack for Working Equitation are defined as follows:
a) Riders must adhere to the rules regarding traditional dress and tack (as listed in ABWE Rules – annex 1) otherwise entry in to the competition can be refused.
b) The use of any other items of tack not mentioned is prohibited.
c) A double bridle, Pelham or similar is allowed in Novice, Inter B , Inter A, and Junior level competition. A Pelham with a single rein must be used at Advanced level. A Snaffle or other single rein bit may be used in Walk and Trot, Novice and Inter B Levels. Two reins must be used with a Pelham bit in levels ridden with two hands.
d) Saddle pads are allowed but in order to be correct should not be visible.
If you are attending on the Saturday (full day), DIY day stabling is included. The stables have automatic watering troughs but you need to ensure that you bring along a hay net for your horse. If you are attending for just a one hour session, stabling is not included. We would ask you to NOT tie your horse to your trailer, and to tack up/untack in the concrete yard or round corral. If you need to leave your horse for a moment, please ask someone to take care of him.
To conform to COVID safety requirements access to our tackroom is restricted and clients are requested to bring their own refreshments. Clients will be required to wear a face mask when entering an enclosed space (ie to access the toilet) and to use the provided hand sanitiser.
