BRC Whip rule to become Club events rule from 01.01.2022

Please note this section from the DFRC Club rules on the Membership page: “BRC states that one whip is permitted for show jumping / cross country, and must be between 45cm and 75cm and must not be weighted or with a hard point at the end. The end of the whip must be padded. The ‘pad’ must be smooth with no protrusion or raised surface (which includes embroidery) and be made of a shock absorbing material throughout its circumference. For those competing at Area level for DFRC this style of whip is already compulsory. Riders should note that from 01.01.2022 this style of whip is to become mandatory at Club level competition & training also.
