Your horse

Your horse will need up to date vaccinations in order to participate in Area and National events. The  can help you make sure that your horse is fully eligible. You must take your passport to all competitions.

The BRC competitions are run under BRC rules. Club rules also apply. These set out criteris for each competition, including eligibility of horses and riders, tack, clothing, conduct at events, elimiations and prohibited substnaces.

BRC Guidelines for Riding Hats (2012)

New rules apply from January 2012 where at BRC events all hats must be checked and tagged with a BRC blue tag. If your hat has been tagged for eventing, it must also be tagged for BRC. Tagging will take place at BRC events, please allow plenty of time to have them checked.

There are prohibited substances that you are not allowed to give or apply to your horse when competing at BRC competitions. These follow the FEI prohibited substances list. Blood tests of horses can be undertaken at competitions.

BRC take this seriously and ban people and horses from any BRC activities, this would mean your weekly lessons too!
