Updated Hat Standards It is mandatory for all Members to wear a protective helmet at all times when mounted with a chinstrap fastened and adjusted so as to prevent movement of the hat in the event of a fall. This rule defines the quality of manufacture that is required. The individual disciplines also have additional requirements with regard to colour and type. It is strongly recommended that second hand hats are not purchased. The hat standards accepted as of 1st January 2016 are detailed in the table below: Hat Standard Safety Mark Allowed at the following activities: PAS 015:1998 or 2011* with BSI Kitemark All activities VG1 with BSI Kitemark All activities Snell E2001* with the official Snell label and number All activities ASTM-F1163 2004a with the SEI mark All activities AS/NZS 3838 1998, 2003 or 2006 All activities The PAS 015: 1998 or 2011 and the Snell E2001 meet higher impact criteria and therefore give more protection  For cross-country riding (over fences 0.80m high and above), including Eventing, Tetrathlon and Horse Trials and also Pony Racing and Mounted Games (whether it be tests, rallies, competition or training) a jockey skull cap must be worn, with no fixed peak, peak type extensions or noticeable protuberances above the eyes or to the front and should have an even round or elliptical shape with a smooth or slightly abrasive surface. A removable hat cover with a light flexible peak may be used if required. It is also strongly recommended that a jockey skull cap is worn for cross-country riding over lower fences.  No recording device is permitted (e.g. hat cameras) as they may have a negative effect
