In line with the latest government and BRC update, we must stress safety factors for social distancing. Social distancing is reduced to 1m+ but 2m is preferred. Obviously, in the case of grooms tacking up for their riders, we suggest that the groom and riders work on opposite sides of the horse whilst tacking up. The rider is permitted to bring up to 4 other persons as long as they are in your social bubble as support. Social distancing must be observed within your own bubble.
