Regulatory & Integrityregulatory

The Rules of Racing are in place primarily to ensure a level playing field and to protect the safety and welfare of horse and Jockey.

The BHA has a dedicated website to the Rules of Racing with a search facility to clarify any rules queries.

An overview of the appeal procedure, rules relating to Apprentices and Conditionals, a list of banned and notifiable substances, equipment and integrity matters can be found in this section of the PJA website as well as The BHA Guide to Penalties and Procedures which sets out the Racecourse Stewards’ procedures following interference, running and riding and whip offences.
