Last week’s move to place the entire country under Level 3 COVID-19 restrictions, means there are some changes to how the sport horse industry can operate.

As published in Horse Sport Ireland’s (HSI) Equestrian Covid-19 Framework, events which cater for elite, high performance and professional athletes can continue and those athletes can travel outside of their of their home county to participate in competitions. Coaches, trainers or essential support personnel and high performance youth athletes are also exempted.
