WELCOME BACK. Equestrian venues re-opening on a phased basis from Monday 18 May

Welcome back. We are pleased to be able to re-open our facilities on a phased basis from Monday 18 May, under the government guidelines for the resumption of sporting activity.

The Equestrian sector is aware of the major public health threat posed by the Covid 19 pandemic and the importance of the measures we must take to reduce transmission of the virus. We realise that Ireland may have to live with this virus for many months, or longer, and there will have to be a new norm for doing business and for social interactions. We realise that person to person transmission through close contact, and environmental contamination with viral laden droplets, are the main contributing factors to viral transmission.

We think our sport is amenable to physical separation and this, coupled with environmental sanitation and good hygiene, should enable us reduce the likelihood of transmissions.

Equestrian sport lends itself to complying with the necessary physical separation to prevent viral transmission.

In re-opening our Equestrian Venues, the members of ECVOA (the Equestrian Competition Venue Owners Alliance) are introducing protocols for venues across Ireland in a phased manner and all will be adhering to Government guidelines. We have introduced additional measures, unique to equestrian sport, for your safety.

Please watch this short video to familiarise yourself with these protocols.

From Monday 18 May, the outdoor sand arenas may be booked for schooling.

All riders coming to the centre will be asked to confirm that they and their staff have read these protocols and will fully co-operate with the Covid 19 Compliance Officer on site. 

Attendees are required to bring their own supply of anti Covid 19 disinfectant materials for their personal use. 

We look forward to seeing you soon.
