ENDURANCE CANCELS ALL RIDES AS A PRECAUTION IN FOOT AND MOUTH OUTBREAK
As a result of the confirmed outbreaks of Foot
and Mouth Disease in Essex this week, the Board of the British Endurance Riding
Association (BERA), the Council of the Endurance Horse & Pony Society of
Great Britain (EHPS) and the Committee of the Scottish Endurance Riding Club
(SERC) have worked together to ensure that ALL events under their control to be
held this weekend (Saturday 24 February and Sunday 25 February 2001) have been
cancelled. This applies to both events in their official ride schedules and to
training & pleasure rides being run by the local groups and regions.
If you have any further questions please contact the central offices of BERA, the EHPS or SERC and we will do our best to help you.
