It is a condition of booking/participating in any Meon Clinic or Training that the following Terms and Conditions are accepted.

Everyone taking part in any Meon Riding Club Clinic/Training must abide by the British Riding Club Rules (BRC).
Information on these rules is contained in the BRC Handbook 2023

New BRC hat standards have been implemented from 1 January 2023, details of which can be found on page 2 of 2023 BRC Hat Tagging Guide for Competitors

Hats are only required to be tagged with the PINK hat tag for BRC Area Qualifiers and Championships. However, only hats meeting the required specification are acceptable at any BRC activity.

Please note that hats with a protuberance/peak longer than 5mm are not permitted for XC.

Meon RC will carry out spot checks to check hat standards.  If asked, please allow your hat to be checked.  If you do not submit your hat for checking, you will not be permitted to take part in the clinic.

The organisers have taken reasonable precautions to ensure the health and safety of everyone present. For these measures to be effective, everyone must take reasonable precautions to avoid and prevent accidents. Neither the organisers nor The British Horse Society accept responsibility for any accident, injury, loss or illness to horse, rider, spectator or property while present at this clinic.

Emergency first aid is available by calling ‘999’.


Can we please remind everyone that when booking onto one of our clinics the onus is on you to advise the organiser as soon as you realise you may have a problem attending through horse, rider or transport problems. The Club generally run clinics as non-profit making and therefore once the times and groups have been issued (which we try to do so as late as possible) we are obliged to pay the venue and instructor for the hours booked and anyone cancelling after times are out will lose their booking fee unless the space can be filled by someone else.
