Its that time of year again,EMDG subs are due. These should be paid as soon as possible in January (£20). Ralph our Treasurer has an onerous task trawling through the bank statements to check who has paid and who has not. Therefore if you wish to be a member of our club in 2017 and you pay by standing order, please ensure your bank deals with this as soon as possible in January. Those who pay by cheque please send to Ralph as usual as soon as possible (payable to EMDG).

Any queries please ring Ralph on 01302 483226. Many thanks.



The Committee has taken the decision that ALL riders in teams representing EMDG should wear one of the new saddlecloths.
These are available in NAVY – in both GP and Close contact /jumping styles and also in WHITE for dressage.
The cost is £31
They are not exclusively for teams and can be worn at all other events /competitions.
Please order via Clare Dolman on in good time for whichever team event you are doing stating which style and colour.
We will arrange to bring them to the event or can post them to you at an agreed cost.




Please note due to a change in policy, Osberton estate now no longer allows dogs on training days or competition days.  This however does not eliminate dogs at Summer Camp, but new rules for camp and dogs will be brought in.  Would all members and non members attending any clinic or competition please leave dogs at home and not in your vehicle.  This is an Osberton Estate ruling not EMDG and we do not want to lose the wonderful venue and facilities we all enjoy.  

Many thanks everyone.                        Jan Pollard

2015 BRC Hat Tagging Guide for Competitors



2015 BRC Hat Rules

We have ben notifed that he European Commision have made changes to the EN1384 hat
standard (this also includes BSEN1384) and it wil no longer be recognised as an aceptable standard
for iding hats in the UK. However, in order to phase out he use of EN1384 and/or BSEN1384 hat
standards, the BRC 2015 / 2016 hat rules wil be changed as folows:  There wil be no changes to the acepted hat standards for 2015 and hats wil continue to be
tagged with the BRC blue hat tags.  However, from 1 January 2016, AL hats must be checked and taged with a new ORANGE
BRC hat ag. Al hats which only met he standard EN1384 or BSEN1384, and do not comply
with another standard of the above list, WIL NOT be acepted and therefore wil not be
permited for any BRC competion. Hats which bear EN1384 or BSEN1384 along with
another standard from the above list, will be tagged. For example, BSEN1384 & PAS015
(198 or 201) along with the Kitemark, would be aceptable, but not BSEN1384 on its own.  From 1 January 2016, no hats with a peak of any description wil be permited for the XC
phase of any BRC competion. Hat covers and silks wil be permited. Please click on the links below for further details.

HELMET 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.
