RIDING HAT STANDARDS

From 1st January 2023, BRC will no longer be accepting 2 hat standards and will therefore need to re-tag.

In order to ensure riders are wearing the most up to date riding hats, please note that from the 1st January 2023, the following hat standards will no longer be accepted, due to the age of hats made to these standards:

1.   PAS  O15 1998

2.   SNELL 2001

A new colour of hat tag will be   required for BE, PC and BRC from 1st January 2023. 

PAS 015 – 2011 and SNELL – E2016 are still both acceptable as are the remaining hat standards as found on page 36 of the BRC 2021 Handbook.

Click the link below to see all hat standards:-
https://www.hopevalleyridingclub.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/2021-BHS-Approvals-Hat-Guide-v1-1.pdf

For safety and insurance reasons, HVRC members must wear a hat conforming to the new standards when riding at all HVRC clinics and competitions.

BRC VOLUNTER LEAGUE
This is a completely free to enter league to really recognise all the hard work and dedication of our volunteers at Club, Area and Championship competitions. With a chance to win some fantastic prizes and rosettes at the end of the year. It is really simple to get involved and volunteers don’t have to be BRC members but they do need to be registered in the Volunteers club. Then they simply just need to submit what hours they have done volunteering each month.
