How do you know if your hat is up to standard and fits correctly?
The British Equestrian Trade Association has produced a new information leaflet called Head First – The BETA Guide to Riding Hats, which provides expert advice for riders.

"Riding hats are one of the most important pieces of safety equipment, as they can help to reduce the risk of serious injury," says BETA executive director Claire Williams. "Yet, time and time again, we see riders of levels, from all disciplines, wearing something either totally unsuitable or incorrectly fastened.

"Hats should always be replaced after any sort of impact
, safety standards must be up to date and you should really say goodbye to any hat more than a few years old, as the foam used in its manufacture will have begun to deteriorate over time.

"Rider safety sits at the very heart of our work and is something we work tirelessly to promote. Head First – The BETA Guide to Riding Hats plays an important role in raising awareness, as well as providing a useful point of reference for all riders."To claim your free copy of Head First – The BETA Guide to Riding Hats,  contact Ann Fitzgerald at BETA tel: 01937 587062 or email annf@beta-int.com.
