The BRC Handbook contains everything you need to know to compete in official Riding Club competitions, including what you and your horse are allowed to wear, eligibility criteria and rules for all the different Championships. We have also combined the BRC Rulebook, Organiser's Book and Affiliation Pack into just one book - the BRC Handbook, which now provides comprehensive information for everyone taking part in all BRC events and activities.
The 2017 Handbook is available to download (pdf) and hard copies are for sale in our bookshop.
2018 Handboook (PDF) *Please note this version of the Handbook will not become effective until Jan 1 2018*
To view the Handbook, you'll need Adobe Reader (version X or higher). This is a free piece of software that can be downloaded from the Adobe website (opens in new window).
