Zone 16 colours are red and white
Please refer to PCANSW uniform rules for all Club, Zone or State uniform competition rules:
Section 45 of the Blue Book (NB amendments have been made over time, refer to the latest amendments doc published with the Blue Book).
When riding at National events, all NSW riders wear a blue PCANSW ratcatcher-style top/shirt with a 1/4 zip at the neck, which allows for an optional blue tie. PCANSW provides these tops to riders representing NSW at National events.
Our Zone 16 uniform as outlined below should be worn up to and including PCANSW State level competitions and can be ordered online below.
Zone 16 uniform for State Jumping, Showriding, Formal Gymkhana, and Dressage competitions (including the dressage component of Eventing) is a long-sleeved white shirt (worn with sleeves down and buttoned up) and red tie; with beige, fawn or oatmeal jodhpurs.
Zone 16 uniform for State Polocrosse, Sporting, Campdrafting, Team Penning, Mounted Games, Team Sporting, Tetrathlon, and the cross-country phase of Eventing and Combined Training competitions is a long- or short-sleeve polo shirt (with optional spray jacket with roll-away hood) in Zone 16 red and white colours (with black trim); with beige, fawn or oatmeal jodhpurs or fawn/beige stockman cut trousers.
Zone 16 polo shirts are our zone colours of red and white, with a black trim.
Polo shirts are official pony club uniform and must be worn in the following disciplines up to and including State level events and competitions: Polocrosse, Sporting, Campdrafting, Team Penning, Tetrathlon, the cross-country phase of Eventing and Combined Training, Mounted Games and Team Sporting.
If riding as a club team for Mounted Games, matching club polo shirts may be worn during competition at Championship events but not for Team Sporting — teams riding in Team Sporting must wear matching polo tops in the Zone colours (not club colours) at State Competitions.
Zone 16 spray jackets with a roll-away hood are in our zone colours of red and white, with a black trim.
Spray jackets are official pony club uniform and are optional but can be worn with the polo shirt during colder months and adverse weather conditions.
Spray jackets in Zone or Club colours are allowed up to and including State level competitions (zipped closed when riding).
Riding Trousers may be worn in all disciplines at club level and all disciplines except Dressage, Showjumping and Eventing at zone and state level (refer to PCANSW Blue Book Section 45 for full details).
Beige, fawn or oatmeal jodhpurs and fawn/beige stockman cut trousers may be worn at State and National events and Championships (if jodhpurs have a different colour insert this insert must only be from the same colour palette).
In addition to the PCANSW uniform rules, Z16 allows Z16 riders to wear jodhpurs of a solid black or a solid white colour at club rallies and Zone 16 events/championships.
- Jodhpur colours should be solid (without patterns) and must not have excessive bling, logos or embellishments.
- When riding in teams for any discipline, riders must all wear the same colour jodhpurs.
- Riders must observe the PCANSW State-specific jodhpur colour requirements of fawn, beige and oatmeal when attending any events/activities outside of Zone 16, including all state and national events/activities.
When riding at other Zone or State events and competitions, beige, fawn or oatmeal jodhpurs must be worn.
Please note that Z16 clubs may have their own by-laws at club level and that white and black jodhpurs may not be suitable across all disciplines.
Boots: correctly fitted black or brown riding boots with jodhpurs and Roper or Dogger type boots with riding trousers (refer to PCANSW Blue Book Section 45 for full details).

Description of polo tops and spray jackets
There are three jackets to choose from in the Webshop, but only two of the jackets can be used by riders when riding (and should be zipped closed when riding):
- rain jacket with a roll-away hood for $60 (light to medium weight jacket with cotton-type lining and good water proofing)
- soft shell jacket with no hood for $80 (heavy weight jacket with a very warm thermal lining and excellent water proofing)
The third jacket in the webshop is exactly the same as the soft shell jacket (heavy weight jacket with thermal lining) but it has a fixed hood and this jacket cannot be used by riders in competition, while riding. Due to demand at Zone 16 meetings, it has been included for a warm alternative for non-riders or for wearing by riders when they are not riding.
You can purchase either a long sleeve or a short sleeve polo top. If you are riding in a team, it is recommended that you all wear the same type of top (long or short sleeves).
The materials are a “sublimated” material, which means they are a polyester blend that can be used for screen printing and produce a vibrant colour with modern design at a minimal cost.
The materials are a a fast drying polyester material that is used widely across sports and by PCANSW. These tops are not a cotton material or embroidered.
The sublimated material and screen printing process also allows for smaller manufacturing numbers when needed and the uniform does not need to be ordered in bulk and stored at cost.
