Unfortunately at the present time we can only accept EMDG members on our clinics etc due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Below is the current guidance received from the BRC.

"We have been getting queries from our clubs as to why they cannot accept entries from non-members at competitions
or training. There are several reasons behind this decision. Firstly, it is important that we have a robust system in place
to contact attendees of any activity should someone in attendance test positive for coronavirus. By only allowing
members on site we can provide accurate contact details if necessary (see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/nhs-test-and-
trace-how-it-works). Secondly, it is essential that we conduct ourselves as safely as possible, both to play our part in
controlling the virus and to avoid bringing equestrianism into disrepute, therefore endangering future activities, hence
why we have so many guidelines in place. A member is bound by these guidelines and we can take disciplinary action
against any member that acts inappropriately. We have no jurisdiction over non-members. Thirdly, sport is meant to be
progressing at a steady pace with relatively low numbers. By opening to non-members, we will see a significant increase
in attendees. As we begin the resumption of BRC activities we should be prioritising our own members. We understand
that non-members provide a significant amount of income to our clubs and that you are keen to welcome them back as
soon as possible. We will continue to look at this and hope to be able to relax this further in the coming weeks as sport
