From 1st January 2023 all riding hats must be ‘tagged’ with a new hat tag which shows that it has been checked and is of the current accepted standards – see attachment for more details. Please be aware that when competing your hats must have the ‘new’ hat tag. There are 3 ways MPC members can get your riding hats checked and issued with a new tag:
