Supporting Equestrians During Localised Lockdown

Supporting Equestrians During Localised Lockdown

By on Jul 3, 2020 in Blog, Equine Bedding |

With a local lockdown issued for Leicester, advice has been provided to horse riding schools to help manage the situation. As the leading provider of equine bedding across the country, P.H Winterton and Son have been in constant contact with our equestrian customers to help as much as we can.

Guidance from the British Horse Society

Oonagh Meyer from the British Horse Society (BHS) commented, regarding the localised lockdown of Leicester,

“The restrictions apply to the city and parts of Leicestershire that ‘touch on the city’s boundaries’.

“There is now a local lockdown in Leicestershire, the council has published a map and we are waiting to confirm specific postcodes that will be affected.”

“Currently, this doesn’t affect any of our BHS approved centres in Leicestershire, however, we have two that are very close to the map the council has provided so far, meaning that when the list of postcodes is published they may fall into the area.

“At this stage, it appears that Leicester city is affected, rather than outlying rural areas.

“We would advise any riding school in the Leicestershire area to check the Leicestershire.Gov.UK website and follow the local authority guidance.”

The Importance of Equine Bedding

With some riders restricted regarding taking their horse out riding, keeping them comfortable in their stables has become even more important.
