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.
