Ordering our Zone 16 Uniform
Individual orders of our Zone 16 polo tops and jackets can be made online through our Webshop.
The password for ordering on the webshop is Z16Pony21
The first round of orders for our new polo tops and jackets will close 28 March 2021 so the first bulk order can hopefully arrive in time for the May ODE State Championships.
We will open another round of orders later this year but if you know that you will be entering teams for the State Mounted Games Championships, please order your polo tops and spray jackets in this production run, by 28 March.
There will usually be two opportunities for placing you orders each year.
Our orders will not usually need such a long production time but this is the first production run and will take a month to manufacture.
Also, this order will be delivered as a bulk delivery (you will be asked to enter your address for delivery but the entire order for Zone 16 will be delivered to a central location for pick up). This can be changed for deliveries in the future.
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.
The new Zone 16 saddle blanket is plain white with two embroidered Zone 16 triangles (one on either side of the saddle cloth).
From 1 July 2021 Zone 16 will be implementing new saddle blankets to be used at all state events. These will replace any and all old saddle blankets previously used by Zone 16 at state events.
Zone 16 will allow a period of adjustment until the end of 2021 for members to update from the old saddle blankets.
The new saddle blanket requirements are as follows.
The saddle pad must:
- be pony or full size
- be dressage or GP in design
- have a small (1.5 square inch or less) quilt pattern in diamond design
- the underneath side, none of which can be seen when on the horse, may be of any colour or fabric, and
- have no other visible colour (including the binding and piping) when on the horse, and no bling of any type.
A new plain white cotton saddle pad (or one in very good condition) meeting the above requirements must be provided to the Horse Rug Whisperer (contact details below – they can also supply the blanket but it is not necessary to acquire from them) four weeks prior to the event, who will attach two embroidered Zone 16 triangles (one on either side of the saddle cloth) at a cost of $40.
Contact details for embroidering the Z16 triangles: Horse Rug Whisperer, Roslyn Pengilly, 0411 088 139
