Invest in Horse Bedding Ready for Mounted Games and Polocrosse
With the announcement that mounted games and polocrosse have been given the green light to resume in England, now is the best time to invest in extra care for your horses.
While daily patterns, including exercise routines, have been disrupted by the Coronavirus pandemic, keeping your horses well is a task that never ends.
Here we are going to share all you need to know about the return of mounted games and polocrosse.
Guidelines for Equestrian Team Sports
Equestrian team sports were stopped in March because of the pandemic, but the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport released guidance last month which contained guidance to minimise transmission of the virus.
British Equestrian has worked with the Mounted Games Association of Great Britain, the United Kingdom Polocrosse Association and The Pony Club to put together action plans and risk assessments for mounted games and polocrosse.
Risk assessments identified ways to lower the risk of transmission and lower the number of people in the vicinity of the field of play. Event organisers can now make modifications to the activity or rules of the sports when required.
This action plan works alongside the DCMS’s return fo Recreational Sport Framework which also needs to implemented by organisers with social distancing guidelines from the government.
