Important Reminder for all EI Competitors

Rule 11.5 Body Protectors

The BETA 2000 Body Protector standard will not be permitted for use at 2018 Eventing Ireland competitions.

A Body Protector which is EN13158: 2009 Level 3 or BETA Level 3 (Purple Label) manufactured in the year 2009 or after, is mandatory for Cross Country, cross country schooling and whenever else a body protector is worn.  

Athletes are strongly recommended to check their body protectors on a regular basis and to replace them if damaged. A body protector should not impede flexibility or balance.

Random checks will be made to ensure that the correct body protector is being worn, but it is the athletes responsibility to ensure they are wearing the correct dress (protective headgear, back protectors etc) during competition, in line with the Eventing Ireland Rules.
