    Post Illustrated Bit Guide

    The Pony Club has a neat little guide to bit mouth pieces and cheek pieces:

    So, for what disciplines are these bits permitted? Certainly not dressage. Are the UK rules the same as the US rules for pony club?

    The header on the page says "Show Jumping Rules 2009."

    The site will not permit direct links to the pages.

    "The Pony Club 2009 Bit Rules for Show Jumping, Racing, Tetrathlon, Polo and the Jumping Phases of Eventing" is the chart's title. (Yes, kids aged 10-15 years get to race!)
    Certainly not dressage.
    You are correct, sir! Saddlery & Dress Rules for Pony Club Eventing
    Are the UK rules the same as the US rules for pony club?
    I don't think they are. US gets a Dr. Bristol for dressage and UK does not; UK may ride in a double-jointed snaffle with roller in the centre while USA cannot. UK also has restrictions on competition colours--even the bits!

    For comparison: USPC Eventing Rulebook 2008

    Just thought this was a nice reference page for peeps who were interested. I'd never heard of a Wilson, Scorrier/Cornish, "Rockin' S" or Scrub Board!
