Yard and horse owners MUST prepare for any eventuality. There is a lot of hearsay and I would advise everyone to ensure information is taken from, or verified by, official sources.
The BHS and BEF websites are being regularly updated with information:
Liveries should consider the position Yard Owners face given the current and potential restrictions and should do what they can to minimise the management of their horses and reduce the workload of yard owners.
The LiveryList hub remains open should yard owners want to use the resources for this time, or to take the coming weeks as an opportunity to review their yard procedures and paperwork:
The way each business and individual chooses to deal with the outbreak is up to them, but it is inevitable that this will have a huge effect on businesses and the industry as a whole.
Currently, the UK government is putting in place provisions to help business owners, employees, and employers through these times by way of financial aid and business support. This includes deferring VAT and Income Tax payments, Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) Relief Package, Business Rates Holiday, Business Interruption Loan Scheme and more.
