We’d heard that there might be cases there but decided that based on the competition format we would go. The competition was outdoors. Only one groom allowed per horse and no spectators. There is no need to touch anything at all as stewards do all of the gates and all of the warm up jumps. Everyone has to social distance and as soon as you have jumped you have to leave. No toilets or registration so no need to go anywhere indoors. It actually felt a lot safer than going to a shop. I think we only had (socially distanced) contact with about 15 people.Forgive me for worrying but id heard that hartpury college last week reported covid cases. Students had been sent home to isolate. Yet there still holding competitions.
Its tricky isn’t it to try and assess the risk I think we may have not gone if it was indoors
