EGB Press release Wednesday 3rd June:


Endurance GB has announced plans to move towards resumption of the sport in England and Wales following the issuing of revised COVID 19 restrictions by the Government and British Equestrian.

The roadmap towards competitive activity agreed by Endurance GB prioritises the safety, health and well-being of the participants, ride officials and the local communities as being at the forefront of any decisions on resumption.

The phased resumption of activity begins from today with the announcement by British Equestrian that coaching of riders in groups of up to six (including the coach) may resume in England. Endurance GB Groups and Coaches will now be able to run small outdoor coaching and training events involving no more than six people in England where it is safe to do so.

As restrictions ease further over the coming weeks to allow events involving more than six people to take place, Endurance GB will look to resume small non-competitive rides of between 5km and 34km. Events will be fully risk assessed and will only take place if it is safe to do so and if all of the respective landowners are content with the event taking place. Competitive events will only be organised once it is clear that the processes in place for non competitive events are working satisfactorily and that safe systems of work are in place for the additional officials that competitive events require.

Entries will only be accepted in advance of the events and attendees will need to complete a health screening form before arriving at the event.

Strict social distancing and additional hygiene measures will be in place at all venues.


Your committee is looking at the current options - watch this space for future announcements!


Endurance is the sport of competitive long distance horse riding. The governing body for Endurance in England and Wales is Endurance GB. 

 

There are 23 regional groups within the national organisation, the Northumberland & Tyneside group being the most northern. 

 

The group is also one of the smallest, but it enjoys much success with many members competing at national and FEI level.


The Northumberland & Tyneside group has a number of Pleasure / Training rides as well as our National ride Hexhamshire.
