where did you do PC ?
Around here you absolutely cannot braid, they want to be able to check the mane for cleanliness, which you would have to ruin the braids to do. I started PC about 12 years ago maybe, I havent been in it for 6 years now.

I'm in Canada. I haven't been in PC for 12 years or so now. Maybe things have changed.

In my experience Pony Club shows are usually fine for braiding - checking for cleanliness etc usually happens at rally days.

I've always thought polos weren't allowed at Pony Club, or boots on the flat for that matter (during competition). Further, they don't suit a made up horse who is braided etc. Thirdly, if you do some research you'll likely find that they really offer very minimal protection. There is a huge range of boots out there that offer better protection, are safer to use, and are allowed in places like pony club.

OP check your local PC rules and regulations. They may not allow braiding. If they do I don't see the harm; however, I would not show in polos no matter the show.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

Okay so a no on the polos, just as good, I don't want to go buy new clean ones haha!
I'm not in PC, it's a open schooling show, fundraising for our local horse park where the PC here meets and such. In the past iv had friends go in with polos and not seen an issue judging wise but that was with a judge I know and ride with who is pretty okay with that sort of this when she knows the horses.

I'm super excited as the last two rides I have had great progression! Working on our circles, and diagonals :)
