Resumption of face-to-face Activities in East Cheshire

We are delighted to be able to resume activities, in line with the road map out of lockdown from the government. We have a busy schedule of events so head to the fixtures page to view and book into upcoming events πŸ΄πŸ’™
We must continue to stick to all rules and, above all, we still need to take common-sense precautions – both to protect others as much as ourselves.

Please remember a few basic rules:

  1. Do NOT gather in groups – no group should be greater than SIX in number and not more than TWO HOUSEHOLDS in any one group;
  2. Maintain social distance individually and within groups – 2 metres or 1.5 metres with protection (e.g. masks);
  3. Follow the directions of stewards at all times;
  4. Please be considerate and respectful of others – whether riders/helpers/stewards/officials etc;
  5. Do not arrive too early and leave as soon as appropriate;
  6. Come prepared with your own face masks/gloves/hand gel etc;
  7. Please try to keep your horses and ponies well apart – there is a mild concern regarding the Equine Herpes Virus (see below) and there is no point taking unnecessary risks;
  8. Above all else, exercise common sense at all times and do not take unnecessary risks – either for yourself or others.


We have been asked to issue the Equine Health Self Certification Form to all riders attending Somerford Park for the foreseeable future. Ideally, this form will be completed and emailed to the event organiser at least 24 hours before the attendance is due.

If you are unable to email it before Friday’s competition, please bring it with you on the day.

An explanation regarding this form from British Equestrian can also be found here. Please note the statement makes it clear that current risks in the UK are LOW – indeed, as the statement advises, β€œRiders should not be more concerned about EVH at the moment – it is easy to forget that risk of infectious diseases such as EHV and Strangles is always with us and not let our vigilance drop.”
