New BS Jump Whip Rules

New BS Jump Whip Rules

About the change 

British Showjumping are introducing a new rule that affects the use of Whip and Spurs for all members effective from the 1st January 2020.

BS said the changes, which apply to all members, came about as a result of discussions between the officials’ working groups, and the BS national sport committee, which have also looked at rules in place in other equestrian disciplines and in racing.

Iain Graham, Chief Executive for British Showjumping, commented “As a national governing body of equestrian sport one of our primary objectives is to ensure equine welfare is always paramount and we see the introduction of this rule as a positive way of meeting this”
