British Riding Clubs Information for Hat Rules and Body Protector Guidelines 2023.
As per the BRC 2022 Rule Book PAS 015: 1998 and SNELL E2001 will no longer be accepted from 1st January 2023. In addition, body protectors with a 2000 label will not be accepted.
The new standards apply to all BRC events from 1st January 2023. The new pink tags will be phased in during 2023. Hat tags are only required for Area Qualifiers and BRC Championships (they don’t have to be tagged for Riding Club events but must comply with BRC rules).
The same guidelines (and pink tag) will apply across BRC, BE and The Pony Club (as with the aqua tags).
