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.
