More people allowed at equestrian events

As of today, the assembly ban has been raised from 50 to 100 people. This makes the running of activities in equestrian sports, including rallies, a bit easier to access, but the guidelines of the authorities must of course remain adhered to, and the recommendations of the Danish Ride Federation are also unchanged – with the exception of the change in the number of persons from 50 to 100.

That is why we have compiled our recommendations on what precautions you can take to ensure that you can conduct and participate in equestrian events in a responsible manner. We know that our list is not exhaustive, and therefore it is expected to be updated continuously as we draw lessons from events. Therefore, you are also more than welcome to sign up for us at  communication@rideforbund.dk , with good ideas or suggestions on how to make the recommendations even sharper.

We encourage all organizers to enforce both your own and the authorities’ guidelines, and that all participants help by adhering to them. We also encourage everyone in the equestrian sport to jointly comply with the current ban on assembly of 50 people per person. event / class as well as the  health authorities’ current guidelines .
