Rider Safety: Claire Williams
Claire has worked at BETA for 20 years, supporting member companies on all business matters. During this time, she has been involved in the ongoing development of hat and body protector standards, lecturing on BETA’s safety equipment courses and undertaking safety equipment checking at leading events attended by BETA. She has worked closely with all of the equestrian disciplines and associations to help put together their rules relating to safety equipment and sits on the Equestrian Safety Group. Claire is also a member of both the riding hat and body protector standards committees for the UK and Europe, and has recently been confirmed as the convenor of the standards committee tasked with rewriting the EN1384 standard for riding hats. In her spare time, she enjoys riding her two horses and walking.
