    If your foot is one inch below, above or anywhere inbetween of your horses knee you cannot ride him/her at PC!!!

    I was outraged

    How is it reasonable?

    They say that its a "safety hazard"

    So I could go and ride a minuture and it would be fine by the rules because my foot is an inch lower than the bottom of the knee!!!

    I have NEVER heard of such a rule and I am involved in PC at club, zone and state level. It certainly isn't a rule in NSW and I doubt it is in VIC.

    And you could not ride a miniature as there IS a rule that any horse under 12.3h must have a rider not exceeding 60kg (I think that is the weight).

    Maybe you heard this from an ill-informed person.

    I think a sensible rule would be not to allow the rider's heel more than 1" below the horse's elbow.

    How so? My old horse was 15hh, I'm 15.4. I'm 95lbs, so....I shouldn't ride my 900lb horse because my leg is long

    I'm thinking in order for your foot to be an inch above the horses knee it would have to be a pretty little pony.
