APRIL 2012 update

Updated Guidelines on the Securing down of Portable Cross Country Fences and fitting of Reverse Pins April 2012

There has recently been a serious incident at a BRC cross country course where the portable fence rotated and brought the horse and rider down.  Fortunately neither horse nor rider

was seriously injured.

On investigation it was found the portable fence was not secured properly and the organiser of the event had not checked the fences.  All cross country fences must be inspected before the competition starts and checked to ensure any portable fence is correctly secured in accordance with the BE Standards  April 2011. 

Details are also on the BRC web site.
