COVID-19

As a show team we may have to change our Covid-10 measures at short notice before a show. We will endeavour to keep things as simple as possible but ask both spectators and competitors to do their part in helping these events run in the safest possible way.

 

  • 2 metres social distancing in place at all times.

  • Masks MUST be worn when inside both the mezzanine and indoor arena (unless mounted).

  • Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the premises. 

 

Your Responsibilities

  • It is the owners’ responsibility to ensure that their horse is fully vaccinated. Passports and vaccination records may be checked by a member of the show team upon your arrival. If your vaccinations are found to be incorrect we are afraid that you will be asked to leave the showground – no refunds will be given in this case.

  • All horses on site must be covered by a minimum of 3rd party liability insurance.

  • Please be safe and aware of others and you surrounding.

  • Please pick up your litter and horse droppings/hay before you leave. Competitors are reminded that the camping and stable fields are used for turnout when there are not events happening at the facility. Therefore we kindly ask that you take all litter home and do not leave anything behind that could endanger the horses who will be in the fields after you.

  • No refund of entry fees will be made unless a medical or vet certificate is produced.

  • Dogs are welcome but must be kept on a lead at ALL times.

Hacking Out

We are very lucky that the facilities at the Garden of England shows enable competitors access to many acres of farmland on which the landowners have kindly given permission for you to hack at your own risk, However it is MANDATORY that any rider who wishes to hack out (irrespective of age or experience) MUST wear a correctly fitted and up-to-date hard riding helmet AT ALL TIMES.
 

Hard Hat Disclaimer

The human head is very vulnerable and may suffer considerable damage owing to injuries caused by a fall or impact from a horse. Injuries to the head may have long term effects and in some cases can be life threatening. It has been proven that wearing a correctly fitted, good condition riding hat can protect the wearer from injury or reduce the overall effect of any impact or injury. We promote safe riding and competition and in order to further this aim strongly recommend that protective headgear to approved standards is worn while handling, exercising, riding or competing any horse or pony. By entering Garden of England shows you indicate that you are aware and take full responsibility for competitors without protective headgear to handle, exercise, ride or compete horses. Riders who do not wear a hard hat with chin straps at all times when riding understand that they are riding at their own risk. Neither BR, NRHA, AQHA, Garden of England Circuit, Sternberg Farms or Sterling Quarter Horses accepts any liability or responsibility for their safety.
