I find that usually you can wear whatever jodhpurs you want to rally days, and other pants too, just not jeans. But to competitions you have to wear beige. And brown ankle jodhpur boots. Again though, it's the individual club that enforces the rules so it differs club to club. I knew a club that let a girl ride in a western saddle and that is way against a few pony club rules.
Becca - You either need to own or lease your horse. It's a bit flexible though. When I was a kid you used to have to fill out a form to "register" the horse with the pony club, and it either needed to be yours or you needed lease papers. However if you were riding someone else's horse that was already registered then, well that was more flexible. However if you don't have a horse at all, well I guess technically you could join as a non-riding member but it would be pointless. Depending on your age though, you could go there as a volunteer helper.
