New Year’s Resolution – check your hat and body protector are the correct standard!

A  very happy 2019 to all our members!

The start of the New Year is a good time to check that your riding hat and body protector are of the right standard to use at Riding Club events. If they are not you will not be allowed to compete at any BRC Qualifiers or Championships. The stewards at these events are very vigilant and will spot any sub-standard equipment. Every hat/body protector is now tagged with an aqua tag before riders are allowed to compete. Also, if you are injured at ANY Riding Club organised activity and are not wearing kit of the correct standard, then the BHS insurance sadly won’t cover you.

To check if your hat/body protector meets the requirements please click on the links below which will allow you to download two pdfs with plenty of useful information and photos of the logos you need to check:
