COVID restrictions and indoor schools

COVID regs:

STEP 1 – FROM 29 MARCH

An indoor riding arena may be used for the following exceptions:

Elite sports people – this is largely restricted to athletes on the World Class Programme at P1 and P2 level

An owner of an animal kept at a riding centre

Employees of a riding centre in order to care for and exercise horses or provide veterinary services

Organised sport and leisure activity for disabled people and children as part of their care is permitted indoors

Activities that form part of the core curriculum of formal education or professional/work-related training/development

Outside the above exceptions, indoor riding arenas must remain closed until Step 2, which will be no earlier than 12 April.

STEP 2 – NO EARLIER THAN 12 APRIL

Under Step 2, indoor arenas will be allowed to open for use as a single household or bubble. There should be no mixing of households until at least Step 3 (no earlier than 17 May). The above exceptions will still apply.

STEP 3 – NO EARLIER THAN 17 MAY

At Step 3, the intention is that indoor arenas may be used in line with the wider social contact limits at this stage – a group of six people or two households.

This is Defra's current confirmed position and we ask the equestrian sector in England to operate in line with the above at this time.
