Hat Tagging

BRC Hat Rules

IMPORTANT UPDATE: WE WILL BE HAT TAGGING AT ALL WINTER LEAGUE AND QUALIFIER EVENTS.

We have been notified that the European Commission have made changes to the EN1384 hat standard (this also includes BSEN1384) and it will no longer be recognised as an acceptable standard for riding hats in the UK.

However, in order to phase out the use of EN1384 and/or BSEN1384 hat standards, the BRC 2015 / 2016 hat rules will be changed as follows:

However, from 1 January 2016, ALL hats will be checked by other disciplines as well. BD & BE, the hats tags I understand are to be greenish/turquoise, but please remember we will be still checking the hats to make sure they are correct, it is for your own health and safety.

2nd photo is of Rebecca Jago and Jen Atkinson at the Pairs Championships at Bury Farm.

All hats which only meet the standard EN1384 or BSEN1384, and do not comply with another standard off the above list, WILL NOT be accepted and therefore will not be permitted for any BRC competition. Hats which bear EN1384 or BSEN1384 along with another standard from the above list, will be tagged. For example, BSEN1384 & PAS015 (1998 or 2011) along with the Kitemark, would be acceptable, but not BSEN1384 on its own.

The third photo is of Mary Barrass who was the owner of Barton Stud, she was also a dressage judge, Chairperson of British Riding Clubs training committee, she was a founder member of British Riding Clubs in Oxford and also Newcastle Riding Club. This is a photograph of her at St. Nicholas Hospital grounds - it was on 22nd May 1988 and the horse was called Cyril. Thank you to Janice Winn for the information. Thank you to all the Team Managers of the different clubs, you do a marvellous job. All the competitions and training are on the events pages. Hilary McKenna Scorers. We are trying to have a score team of about 11-12 people that would score for different events through the year, the team will be lead by Friedl Hutchinson and some training will be given, you do not necessarily have to have a horse background, but a general interest in scoring and also familiar with computers would be helpful.

From 1 January 2016, no hats with a peak of any description will be permitted for the XC phase of any BRC competition. Hat covers and silks will be permitted
