23rd march 2020
It is with regret that ILDRA is suspending all public activity until at least end of June 2020. This suspension follows the latest guidance issued by the UK and Irish Governments in response to the outbreak of COVID-19. This position will be constantly reviewed given prevailing information.
We thank all of our members, organisers, riders, volunteers and their families to help to support each other during these unprecedented times. Please take this opportunity to check in on your friends and family near and far - let's give everyone the support they need over the coming months.
This morning (16th March) ILDRA received communication from Horse Sport Ireland (HSI) to inform us that all endurance events scheduled from now to the end of the month (29th March) are "not sanctioned and as a resulting consequence should not run".
The directive from HSI means that we are unable to run our event at Gosford Forest Park on the 22nd of March.
ILDRA will issue refunds, in full, for all entries already made. Refunds will be processed by the original means of payment.
Having taken sensible actions we would hope that we can depend on all the enabling bodies, ABC Council, HSI and DAERA-NI , etc to assist us with establishing an alternative date once the present situation has passed.
Thanks for your understanding.
