Remember from 1 January, only BETA 2009 purple labels will be accepted. There is one exception to this – Exo Body Cages are only compliant with BETA 2000 purple label, but they will continue to be allowed.
Interestingly the Beta official website also says
Body protectors should be replaced at least every three to five years, after which the impact absorption properties of the foam may have started to decline.
If you should have a heavy fall, your body protector should be checked immediately for dents. The foam will expand back to its original shape within 30 minutes; but if a dent is showing on examination, then it’s likely that this part of the garment has lost its impact absorption properties and should be replaced.
Of course here’s hoping none of you have had a fall bad enough to dent your body protector !
BRC, BE and PC will be tagging with the same AQUA coloured tags for 2018. This means that each of the three member bodies will accept each other’s tag – thus reducing the need for separate tags for each organisation and a rainbow on your hat !
Dressage competition open to all, from Intro through to PYO elementary/Medium tests.
This season we will be running a WARC MEMBERS LEAGUE whereby points will be awarded as follows: 1st place 6pts; 2nd 5pts; 3rd 4pts; 4th 3 pts; 5th 2pts; 6th 1 pt. Juniors will be separate if 6 or more in the class. Points will accumulate over all of the competitions and there will be prizes for the top 3 members in each level at the end of the season.
