The British Equestrian Federation confirmed on 27 November that “ In all tiers, all equestrian facilities, yards and centres can open for lessons, hire and competitions. Horse owners and guardians can travel to care and exercise horses without restriction including travelling horses away from the yard for exercise, training/lessons, hire or competition”, we are going ahead with our Christmas Dressage on Sunday 20th December.
We are very grateful to Lana Craker for allowing us to use her indoor school. Please note the Covid-19 instructions on the schedule.
As usual, we would be grateful for help on the day. As it may be cold, having helpers in shifts avoids anyone getting too cold! Because of Covid-19, we will need more help than usual for stewarding: checking each entrant and their companion as they arrive, noting on a list that they have made their Covid-19 declaration, making sure not more than 3 riders in the warm-up arena at a time, collecting score sheets from the judge and taking to the office and making certain each dressed up entrant has had their photo taken for the competition. i.e. are there any good photographers out there? We would love it if you volunteered. And, of course, someone to add up the score sheets! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you can. We know that you are not quite as busy as usual before this Covid-19-influenced Christmas and could maybe spare the time.
