I hope you are coping in these difficult and strange times and that you and your family are safe and well. The committee has met (virtually), and we trying to consider primarily what support your club can offer you and your horse whilst the lockdown is in place and our activities are suspended. We will continue to communicate updates from national bodies on our FB page with advice and guidance.
At a local level, we have devised the attached form which you may want to use, just in case. We are conscious that should you fall ill, need to self isolate or be in hospital, knowing that someone can care for your horse may reduce anxiety levels. The form simply outlines key information someone may need to look after your horse. I suggest you keep a copy at your yard and that you give a copy to someone who can look after your horses if necessary. If you don’t have someone in mind that can help, please let a member of the committee know and send us the form, and we will try to liaise with another local member to help you.
Hopefully you will not need to use this information.
Please feel free to contact any of the committee if you have any thoughts or comments on how we can support you.
