Riding Hats must comply with Pony Club standards:
The hats must bear the CE mark
and a quality symbol, either the BSI Kitemark, the SAI Global symbol or the official Snell label with number.
The CE symbol on its own is not
sufficient to ensure consistent standard of manufacture.
PAS 015:1998 and the Snell E2001 meet higher impact criteria and are therefore more protective.
Cross Country riding ( over fences 0.80cms high & above ) a jockey skull hat with no fixed peak, must be worn.
It is also strongly recommended
that the jockey skull hat is worn for XC riding & jumping even over lower fences.
hats must carry the Kitemark and
CE and either PAS 015: 1998 or BS EN 1384:1997 or EN 1384:1996
E2001 Snell symbol and CE and E2001 & the official Snell no.
is really important that the riding hats fit correctly.
If you buy a new hat please make sure you get it checked & tagged.
