Halesworth and District Riding Club

Hello everyone,

I think the outbreak of COVID-19 is at forefront of most our minds, not least because of the effect it has on our planned activities with our horses or ponies.

On Tuesday March 17th 2020, British Riding Clubs issued guidance to all their members which states that all activities with any relation to the riding club should be stopped up until and including June 30th, 2020. On May 13th 2020 further guidance has been issued.

Unfortunately this means that we have to cancel all the dressage competitions we have scheduled before that time, but also all group clinics and training sessions run under the auspices of the club.

We are very sorry to have to make this announcement, but with the current situation being what it is, I am sure you all understand why these steps are necessary.

Attached is a copy of both announcements made by BRC in case you wish to read it in more detail.

BRC Coronavirus Update 17/03/2020

BRC Coronavirus Update 13/05/2020

Also attached is FAQ supplied 25 March 2020

Coronavirus FAQs for BRC Committees and Members v1 25.03.20

We very much look forward to seeing you all out and about again in the second half of this year, but in the meantime please take care of yourselves and your families.

Kind regards

Nicky Virgo
