BRC Provisional Hat Guidelines for 2016

Hi Everyone,

Just to give you a heads up on the new hat rules for next year. Laura from Head Office has sent this out.  2016 BRC Provisional Hat Rules

Please feel free to distribute this among your members. If people know what standards will be expected it may stop them making an expensive mistake.

We saw some brand new hats this weekend that will not pass the new standards next year. Price is not always a guarantee that the hat is up to standard, some of the very expensive ones on sale at the moment are not to future standards.

Also please let your members know that they will all need new tags from 1st Jan next year. With this in mind we will endeavor to have extra hat taggers at the early competitions next year.


Summer Show Results 2015

Morning all,

I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who gave their time over the weekend to help make the summer show a great success.

All our club volunteers had two very long days, and thankfully the weather was very kind to us.

Without you, these area competitions would not be able to run.

Well done to all members who competed and congratulations to the lucky ones going to the championships! Good luck to all of you and let’s hope you come back with some national titles for Area 4!

Finally a personal and on behalf of area 4 members, ‘thank you’ to Nicky and the committee for all of their time and work leading up to and over the weekend.

It doesn’t finish there…… all the results have to go into the office, sorting and sifting through hundreds of sheets is not a two minute job!

We have come to the end of our area qualifying competitions for another year !

I hope you all enjoy the rest of your summer and look forward to seeing you at Richmond for the  Winter Dressage in November.
