I'm not actually sure why that is, it's just one of the rules the EFA (equestrian federation of australia) have, unless you're riding at a championship event or riding FEI.
Pony club is apparently 21 years old as well.
Better to be safe than sorry, and just wear joddy boots for a PC competition, rules are different all over the wolrd, so take advice on dress code from an Aussie not someone from overseas, the rules are very different!
