TREC GB COVID-19 UPDATE
Wednesday 18th March 2020
At its Trustees’ meeting on Wednesday 18th March, the TREC GB Board of Trustees carefully considered relevant information regarding the Covid-19 (coronavirus) outbreak, and has taken the difficult decision to postpone, with immediate effect, all events until at least mid-May at the earliest.
TREC GB REQUIREMENT
TREC GB requires that all events involving equines should insist that vaccinations are up to date (12 month cycle) and check passports before horses are unloaded. Horses that have had their annual vaccination or a booster, within the last six days should not be allowed to compete. Some venues require a 6 month cycle and if so this will be indicated on the schedule.
We also ask that riders don’t attend events if their horse, or other horses stabled at the same location, are showing any flu symptoms.
Additionally, TREC GB suggests that in preparation for the coming Summer Series season, all riders should check their horses are vaccinated in anticipation of this becoming a future, long term requirement.
For unvaccinated horses to be able to compete a new programme takes a minimum of 28 days.
