Club Rules 

Whilst we want every single person who attends our shows to have fun and enjoy their day; there are rules that must be followed to ensure we keep everyone safe. Anyone who is found not to be following these rules will be asked to leave the show ground immediately.

2. Whip and /or spurs are not allowed in any gymkhana event.

5. The Judge's decision is FINAL

6. Competitors must enter the ring when requested to do so, or failure to comply may lead to elimination from the class. If for any reason a competitor is unable to enter the ring when called, it is their responsibility to see that the ring steward and judge are informed of the circumstances.
