THE LATEST BEF GUIDANCE RE: COVID-19

13TH MAY 2020

Ref #: 228423
  • Coaches can travel to yards for individual face-to-face training in controlled outdoor environments
  • Riders are now permitted to transport horses to a venue for an individual lesson or facility hire outdoors
  • Venues should conduct full risk assessments and ensure that the required public health, hygiene and social distancing measures are implemented effectively

  • Coaches can travel to yards for individual face-to-face training in controlled outdoor environments
  • Riders are now permitted to transport horses to a venue for an individual lesson or facility hire outdoors
  • Venues should conduct full risk assessments and ensure that the required public health, hygiene and social distancing measures are implemented effectively
  • SOCIAL DISTANCING MUST BE OBSERVED AT ALL TIMES

It's hard to believe nearly 2 months have passed since lock down began. We hope you're all staying safe and sane during this difficult time. 

The British Equestrian Federation have reviewed their stance on riding and coaching, and the following developments have been announced:

Coaches can travel to yards for individual face-to-face training in controlled outdoor environments. They must ensure that the necessary measures, risk assessments and safeguarding provisions are put in place, including checking insurance cover with their providers. 

Riders are now permitted to transport horses to a venue for an individual lesson or facility hire outdoors. Those involved in travelling to or from a venue must all be from the same household. Riders may meet with one other from outside their household, which may be a coach or other participant, all with the proviso that the appropriate social distancing and hygiene practices are in place. 

Venues should conduct full risk assessments and ensure that the required public health, hygiene and social distancing measures are implemented effectively.

Social distancing must be observed at all times, as should public health, hygiene and biosecurity requirements. It is asked that the equestrian public consider the risk of their activity, and to ride or exercise where it is safe to do so and within the capabilities and fitness levels of them and their horse.

  • Connemara or coloured native
  • 5-7 years - Gelding - 14.1-14.2hh
  • Must be broken in

Special pony wanted after recently losing my amazing boy.

Looking for a show quality coloured native or chunky Connemara gelding. Ideally 14.1-14.2. Nothing bigger. Must have been backed but I am happy to take on something green and slowly bring it on. Ideally 5-7 years old as I want as many years as possible with this pony.

Looking for a top quality pony to do a handful of shows a year. It won’t be over shown but will get regular outings to do dressage, low level jumping, pleasure rides, clinics, trips to the forest and beach, etc to have fun and variety.

The pony must sensibly hack alone and be easy enough to take out to clinics and shows by myself when I don’t have help.

He will be my only pony and live on a nearby DIY yard. It is very important that the pony enjoys fuss and attention. Tasks should take much longer than planned due to cuddles and scratches! I am very happy to keep in contact with the pony’s breeder and/or previous owner. Feel free to ask me questions to see if you think I will suit your pony.

I am in England and am happy to travel a reasonable distance. However, due to current circumstances this will be limited so please don’t reply with ponies based in Ireland as I do not want to buy unseen.

If a Connie, the pony needs to have been HWSD tested and either be clear or a carrier only.

My pony will be very difficult to replace so other registered large breed natives may be considered if they fit the above.
