2018 Body Protector and hat rules

Body Protectors

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 !

 

 

Hats

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 !

Area 7 Winter Dressage Qualifier – Sat 17th February 2018, Keysoe
12 Dec

Area 7 Winter Dressage Qualifier – Sat 17th February 2018, Keysoe

Dressage Riders please read on!

Would you like to enter the Area Winter Dressage Competition with a chance to qualify for the BRC Championships next year? You can enter as an Individual or join up with 3 others to form a team.

If you are interested in riding for your club please send your name, mobile number, horse name (as on passport), the test you want to ride and whether you wish to be in a team, go as an individual or don’t mind, to Janice at janrjjmm@btinternet.com no later than Fri 22nd Dec. We do the entries for you once we have sorted out who is interested in taking part.

If you would like to be part of a team, please make sure you are available for the Championship date should the team qualify!!

The organisers require 2 helpers per team this year and those riding as individuals will each be scheduled for 1 hour of helping around their test time. This is a vital part of participating in the Area events and you and/or your team can be disqualified if the helper slot is not filled. Please be prepared to help or to find others to help!!

You can enter a class in both the Novice and the Intermediate qualifiying events (both held on the same day). Entry fees are £17 per class. Please be aware that the club pay an advanced entry fee in addition to this which commits the place and so payment from you must be received by January 25th 2018 latest!

It’s a good fun day out and a relaxed atmosphere and there are usually spare spaces in trailers/lorries for transport. If there is interest I will try to schedule a training day at Grange Farm to run through the tests. Why not have a go!!
