As a member of The Pony Club, I stand for the best in sportsmanship as well as in horsemanship.

I shall compete for the enjoyment of the game well played, and take winning or losing in my stride, remembering that without good manners and good temper, sport loses its cause for being.

I shall endeavour to always treat my horse with consideration and kindness.



Have a fabulous day out in our glorious countryside!

COVID guidelines, Passports & EHV-1

COVID guidelines: The Pony Show is being run within the current COVID guidelines which can be found on the PCUK website. You can find a COVID risk assessment for the event on the Cotswold Hunt Pony Club website. For the updated National COVID Summary please click here.

Insurance: Non-Pony Club competitors are not covered by The Pony Club Insurance and must have their own third party cover. The Cotswold Hunt Branch of The Pony Club and the organisers of this event are not legally responsible for non-Members and their insurance will not cover you.


Passports and Equine Influenza: A reminder that any horse or pony attending a Pony Club activity must be accompanied by their passport. The first and second Equine Flu vaccination injections must have been given and, if needed, correct subsequent booster injections.  The Pony Club/BEF’s rules will apply (see below) and Passports will be spot checked to ensure all horses/ponies are up-to-date with their annual vaccinations. Those not complying will be turned away.  Please have your pony/horse’s passport with you and be ready to show the immunisation schedule.


BEF/Pony Club rules: In the face of recent equine influenza outbreaks the British Equestrian Federation (BEF) asks all event organisers or coordinators to:


  1. 1. Check equine ID passports of all horses attending your event

Ensure that the horse (or pony) has received two injections for primary vaccination against equine influenza given no less than 21 days and no more than 92 days apart. Only these two injections need to have been given before a horse/pony can attend. In addition, if sufficient time has elapsed a first booster injection must be given no less than 150 days and no more than 215 days after the second injection of the primary vaccination. Subsequently, booster injections must be given at intervals of not more than six months apart. Any horse not complying with the vaccination rules should not be unloaded nor any horses travelling with it and they will not be allowed to participate in any session.

  1. We strongly advise

Re vaccination PCUK are imposing a six month booster requirement on local veterinary advice, event attendees must be aware of this at when making entries and have enough time to comply – at least 7 days.


There is increased concern over the impact of Equine Herpes, EHV-1, in the UK. The recent outbreak on the continent has so far claimed the lives of several horses.  British Equestrian (the BEF, of which The Pony Club is a Member Body) is requesting that all Member Bodies use a process of self-certification whereby they declare their horses and ponies fit to attend the activity subject to the ongoing monitoring of the disease.  Click HERE for further information.

We are asking Pony Club members & those attending the Pony Show to confirm with the organiser 24 hours before it starts that their horse or pony shows no signs of:

  • recent cough of unknown cause
  • recent nasal discharge of unknown cause
  • enlarged lymph notes
  • fever (>38.5˚C)
  • recent onset of neurological signs of unknown cause
  • diarrhoea

In addition the horse or pony:

  • is not under current investigation for EHV infection.
  • has not been in contact with and is not kept on the same premises as a horse known to have or be under investigation for EHV.
  • has been resident in the UK for the last 28 days.

If the horse or pony shows any of these clinical signs on the day of the activity it must not travel nor attend the training or competition.
