British Dressage riding hat standards update

British Dressage riding hat standards update

British Dressage have announced their approach to the removal of the BS/EN1384 hat standard following the standard's withdrawal in December by the EU Commission.

Hats with the BS/EN1384 standard will continue to be permitted for use in British Dressage Competitions throughout 2015 and 2016.

British Dressage will still be removing the BS/EN1384 from the list of recommended standards from the 1 January 2017.

Therefore hats with the BS/EN1384 standard can be worn until January 2017.  As the date for the publication for the new EU standard as not been confirmed, the January deadline may be extended.
