The Tipperary Contender meets the new standard ASTM F1937

A minimum standard in New Zealand Eventing for Body Protectors (BETA EN13158 2009 or 2018 Level 3 or ASTM F1937) is being introduced 1 August 2020 by NZPCA and ESNZ EVENTING with regards to cross-country as per ESNZ Eventing Rules Article 655.6.

There is now a minimum standard for Body Protectors.

The Standards are;

  • BETA 2009 Level 3
  • BETA 2018 Level 3
  • ASTM F1937

To meet the minimum standard a body protector must have a label on it when manufactured with one of these standards on it.
