The Good news is we can now reopen our cross country course as of this Saturday 16th May.

The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) statement https://www.britishequestrian.org.uk/news/british-equestrian-s-stance-on-riding-and-coaching-reviewed,  has given us further details following the Government's statement last weekend.

"Riders are now permitted to transport horses to a venue for an individual lesson or facility hire outdoors. They may meet with one other from outside their household, which may be a coach or other participant, all with the proviso that the appropriate social distancing and hygiene practices are in place. Those involved in travelling to or from a venue must all be from the same household. Venues should conduct full risk assessments and ensure that the required public health, hygiene and social distancing measures are implemented effectively."

It also states that venues and coaches should “conduct full risk assessments and ensure that the full public health, hygiene and social distancing measures are implemented effectively”

We have now reviewed our procedures for the hire of our cross country course and for the time being in order to remove the need for face to face contact, all bookings for the cross country hire will be done on line which will include the agreement to our hire terms and conditions disclaimer.  Two hourly Slots are available and are limited in numbers.  Social distancing must be maintained at all times whilst using the course and in order to avoid close contact.


PLEASE NOTE That the show jumps will not be available for hire and The toilet facilities will remain closed until further notice.
