The Irish Pony Club has issued guidance to Branches and Areas based on the measures announced by the Department of Health.
However, it is important for people not to panic and be responsible to help prevent potential spread of Covid-19 at this time. We must adhere to the guidelines and protocol issued by the Department of Health and the European Centre for Disease Control. It is in everyone's best interest to observe good hygiene with frequent hand washing and fresh clean clothes and have a healthy diet.
But it is also important to encourage children to ride their ponies if at all possible as the exercise in the fresh air will help focus the mind and stimulate good health.
We will continue to review the situation and provide updates as necessary based on government advice and recommendations.
Stay well, safe and keep smiling.
