Numbers at Events – Covid update

Now we have moved into the next phase of the roadmap in England, clubs and areas can ease the restrictions on the numbers they have attending their events.

We suggest that no more than 5 people may attend with a competitor, but obviously clubs and areas can restrict this if they require depending on the circumstances of the event. Social distancing must still be adhered to.

BRC Statement 2021 Championships & Membership

The BRC Advisory Committee met on Wednesday 13 January to discuss arrangements for the 2021 championships. The committee discussed the current lockdown situation across all nations and the implications this would have on the ability of areas to run qualifying competitions, as well as the championships themselves and the potential mixing of people from across the UK. It is with great disappointment that we must announce further cancellations to our calendar of events after losing many of our competitions in 2020. All options were investigated thoroughly, and we feel we have come up with the best solutions available to us, ensuring we adhere to government guidelines and keep our staff, officials, volunteers and competitors safe. Please be aware that the calendar may be subject to further change depending on government guidelines and the evolving situation with the pandemic.

Arena Eventing Championships 13 – 14 March: This event will be postponed from its original date and will now take place on 22 and 23 May 2021 at Aston le Walls.

Novice Winter Championships (Incorporating the rescheduled 2020 and 2021 Novice and Intermediate Championships) 26 – 29 March: This event will be cancelled. All dressage classes will be run as an online competition with further details to follow in due course. The show jumping classes will not be re-arranged. We know this is disappointing but there are no viable options within the current climate.

Intermediate Winter Championships 23 – 25 April: This event will be cancelled. All dressage classes will be run as an online competition with further details to follow in due course. The show jumping classes will not be re-arranged. We know this is disappointing but there are no viable options within the current climate.

Combined Training Championships 22 – 23 May: This event will be cancelled with the rescheduled Arena Eventing Championships taking place on this date.

Horse Trials Championships 6 – 8 August: This event will go ahead but will run as a short format competition (no roads and tracks or steeplechase). All classes will run as one-day-events.

National Championships, Dressage to Music Championships and Quadrille: We are monitoring the situation closely and will issue another update that covers these events later in the spring.

2021 Membership Invoices & Insurance Certificates: These have not yet been sent for 2021. Please rest assured you are still covered by the BRC insurance policy at this time. We are currently looking at all options to find the best outcome for our members and finalising some insurance details. A further update will be issued as soon as possible, and the documents will be with you as soon as they are available. If you require your hard copies of the 2021 Handbook urgently, please contact megan.gibbs@bhs.org.uk and they will be posted out to you.

WINTER QUALIFIERS UPDATE

I hope you and yours are staying safe and well.

It is a week since the government announced a national lockdown, which has had an impact on our everyday lives, some more than others.

So far during this latest lockdown, area 4 has cancelled the rearranged Winter Novice & Intermediate Dressage Q, the rearranged Arena Eventing Q, along with Winter Novice & Intermediate SJ and as yet a definite decision hasn’t been made re Combined Training and Style Jumping ( this is a summer Q) but it is unlikely these will go ahead, as they are scheduled for the first weekend in March.
Decisions re the Summer Show and Horse Trials will be made once we have more information from the Government and the BRC office.

If BRC re schedule the Championship dates, I will do my best to find new dates and venues to provide qualifiers for those Championships.

As soon as I have any information from BRC, it will be passed onto clubs via email to Club Chairs & Committees, which should be cascaded to all members, and published on the area website.

I’d like to thank the area committee for their continued work and support to keep area 4 fluid.

If anyone has any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by e mail or call me.

Do take care and stick to the rules and let’s work together to get through these testing times. Take care and stay safe.

Kindest regards

Margaret
