Vaccination Policy 2018

Please have a look at the latest rules about this. For Area level and above all horses and ponies will need to be fully vaccinated for Flu and tetanus with vaccination dates complying with the date written on the document in the link above.


There is no longer a requirement for permission to wear spurs below B Test (via the Membership Spur card which had to be shown at competitions). Training in the proper use of spurs is still strongly advised (via our coaches) and misuse will be reported to the DC, Area Rep and Training Chairman.

Hat Rule 2018

Just to let you know that all hats will need to be checked and retagged with the new aquamarine tag. This will also suffice for BE and British Riding Clubs. White tags will no longer be accepted at rallies and competition. Please check in with Dawn or Luise at your next opportunity and they can do this for you. Thank you!
