Head cams

BRC Official Statement:

In light of the precautionary decision by British Eventing to prohibit the wearing of helmet cams with immediate effect. British Riding Clubs have also followed this measure in the interest of safety and welfare of riders and horses. This is to allow for the independent completion of expert research to be concluded. Therefore rule G22.6 is replaced with immediate effect (13:00 hrs 17/10/2014) as follows:

 

G22.6: Electronic Devices

No Receiving, recording, transmitting or monitoring device maybe used by a competitor during any phase of a competition. Head Cams are prohibited from use at any BRC affiliated competitions.

 

This decision will naturally cause some disappointment to those that use head cams to record their achievements but I am sure you will agree that safety has to be a top priority and it would be wrong to not take into account the current research and investigations on-going with the (TRL) Transport Research Laboratory. The ruling will be reviewed once the independent research is concluded.

The two photos at the bottom are from BRC HT championships held at Swalcliffe, Banbury, One of the best events that I think BRC have ever organised.

The first photo is of Fiona Grant, whose dad took many of the photos that have come from Swalciffe, thank you very much.  Fiona I think is working out whether she knew the dressage test.

The second photo is of Penny Thompson, Team Manager of Darlington RC doing her trot up, BRC is one of the few organisations that have a two and three day event which involves trot up, roads and tracks and steeplechase.
