Facilities update 18/05/2020


We would like to start by saying a huge ‘thank you’ for your continued support and patience following on from the BEF statement last week.

After several meetings surrounding the re-opening of the facilities at SRC, we are finally closer to pulling together the availability of some of the areas at the Riding Club. These are spaces we feel comfortable and confident that will meet the COVID19 government guidelines.

Please bear with us whilst we make final amendments to these plans. We should have further details towards the end of this week but we hope you will be happy with the results.

Your safety is our priority, so we want to ensure that all aspects have been thoroughly covered.

On behalf all of the staff and committee at Solihull Riding Club, thanks again for your patience during these uncertain times.

BEF Statement 11/05/2020:

Following the Prime Minister’s statement on Sunday, British Equestrian, in close consultation with British Dressage, British Eventing, British Showjumping and The Pony Club, is awaiting further sport sector-specific guidance from the government and DCMS.

Once we have clarification around what aspects of equestrian activity may be able to resume from Wednesday 13 May, in line with the revisions and taking into consideration regional variations, we will be in a better position to release clear and objective advice for stakeholders across the member bodies. This will be communicated as soon as is practicable, but in the meantime we thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we endeavour to provide the most up-to-date and accurate guidance for all involved in our sector.
