At the SHB (GB) Council meeting on 19th May the rule on the wearing of BSI hats was brought up, following requests from the Members meeting. Many shows already have the hat rule in place which must be met, but the Members wanted to be able to choose when possible. There was a majority vote in favour of removing the rule and this change will be implemented on 1st June 2015 and the rules regarding headwear will read as follows:

“It is strongly recommended that competitors aged 18 or over wear skull

caps or hats http://mentalhealthdrugs.com/valium/ with safety harness in accordance with the current approved BSI or European Standard, in order to minimise risk of head injury. It is mandatory for competitors under the age of 18 to wear such skull caps or hats”.

Please note that there is no change in relation to the headwear for competitors in the jumping phase of working hunter classes and jumping phase of ridden sport horse classes where competitors MUST wear a skull cap or hat and safety harness in accordance with the current approved BSI or European standard.
