STEP 1 – FROM 29 MARCH
An indoor riding arena may be used for the following exceptions:
Elite sports people – this is largely restricted to athletes on the World Class Programme at P1 and P2 level
An owner of an animal kept at a riding centre
Employees of a riding centre in order to care for and exercise horses or provide veterinary services
Organised sport and leisure activity for disabled people and children as part of their care is permitted indoors
Supervised activities for children or other persons who were under the age of 18 on 31 August 2020, limited to 15 participants
Activities that form part of the core curriculum of formal education or professional/work-related training/development
Outside the above exceptions, indoor riding arenas must remain closed until Step 2, which will be no earlier than 12 April.
STEP 2 – NO EARLIER THAN 12 APRIL
Under Step 2, indoor arenas will be allowed to open for use as a single household or bubble. There should be no mixing of households until at least Step 3 (no earlier than 17 May). The above exceptions will still apply. Update 07/04.21 - Sport England has confirmed that coaches acting in a 'workforce' capacity are exempt from the rules of gathering. This will also permit equine sport in indoor arenas to take place with a single competitor in the school at a time to complete their round/test. Indoor arenas may be used for warm up but on a 'one in, one out' basis only so only a single rider is inside at a time.
STEP 3 – NO EARLIER THAN 17 MAY
At Step 3, the intention is that indoor arenas may be used in line with the wider social contact limits at this stage – a group of six people or two households.
This is Defra’s current confirmed position and we ask the equestrian sector in England to operate in line with the above at this time. There is further information on the gov.uk website or Sport England.
