Republic of Ireland - Coronavirus Update | 15 June 2020

15 June 2020


This advice and information is to help support horse owners and those who care for horses during the Covid-19 outbreak.

The Republic of Ireland has moved to Phase 2 from 8 June 2020.

For equestrians this will mean:

  • You can travel a maximum of 20 km to exercise and care for your horse.
  • There will be a phased return to work of coaches and riding schools.
  • People may practise sport or fitness activities in groups of up to 15 but they must practise social distancing, minimise contact, not share equipment and practise strict hygiene.
  • This is limited to up to 6 people in an indoor environment
  • All guidance protocols, including social distancing and protective measures must still be observed.
  • Those with horses at Livery Yards should be guided by the arrangements in place where they keep their horse(s).

Further information on the Phase 2 can be read here.
