Hat tagging & Body Protector checks

BRC hat tagging is taking place at all BRC Area Qualifiers and BRC championships. This will be checked before you are allowed to compete so please allow time for your hat to be checked and tagged with the current PINK tag unless you have already had this done at a PC or BE event. Your hat will be inspected for the current safety standard marks and numbers, this will only take a few minutes. 

From 1st January 2024 the BETA 2009 Purple label will NO LONGER BE ACCEPTED. Please ensure that you have a Level 3 body protector showing the BETA 2018 Blue label. This will be checked before you compete in any cross country competition.

Please refer to the 2024 BRC Handbook for details of hat (Section 2 G22.2) and body protector (Section 2 G22.3) standards.


Any horse or pony competing at Area or National Championships MUST be vaccinated in accordance with BRC Rules. Please refer to the 2024 BRC Handbook - Section 2 G7 which gives details on the current rules which have changed since 2023.
