Update on Covid Restrictions for England from BRC dated 27th November 2020

From 2 December, BRC activities can resume across all Tiers. The table below shows the specific guidelines for
each type of activity in each Tier. You can find which Tier your area has been placed in here:
https://www.gov.uk/find-coronavirus-local-restrictions.   It should be noted that your individual Tier is taken
from your home address, not where your horse is kept.
Whilst sporting activity is permitted to resume in all three Tiers, it should be noted that associated travel
restrictions may govern what BRC activities can take place. As a general rule, people residing in Tier 1 can
travel to Tier 2 but must comply with Tier 2 rules whilst there i.e. numbers allowed to meet. People residing in
Tier 2 can travel to Tier 1 but must continue to comply with Tier 2 rules whilst there. There should be no unnecessary travel into or out of Tier 3. BRC activities would not be considered necessary travel, so whilst events
are permitted to be held in Tier 3 areas, they should only be attended by people residing within those areas.
Organisers should do their best to enforce these travel restrictions, however it remains the ultimate
responsibility of the individual.
Specific advice for horse owners, coaches, venues and riding schools can be found on the BHS website here:

(We will let you know where to return your 2019 trophies).

Members will have received an e mail and papers.

If you are not a club member but would like to provide feedback for the AGM, or indeed volunteer with the club, please message me on facebook me stating your comment and letting me know you are not a member.

Thank you very much indeed.

November 2020 Lockdown message from British Riding Clubs

Following the recent announcement of another national lockdown in England from Thursday 5 November until Wednesday 2 December, we are saddened to announce that the current interpretation is that all BRC activity, bar virtual activity, must cease during this time. For the avoidance of doubt, this includes all activities run under the BRC banner, including competitions, training, clinics and camps. We continue to liaise with the Department for Digital, Media and Sport and Sport England, and will update you further should the advice change.

Kind regards,

Megan  Gibbs,  British Riding Clubs
