🚨 Equestrian Guidance Update 30/11/20 🚨

Dear All,

Following the recent publication of the legal text around travel restrictions, as issued by the Scottish Government, we have been working with sportscotland to further clarify specific points in relation to the changes to travel connected to sport and physical activity in Level 3 and 4 areas.  

The Specific changes/updates that have been made to travel sections to reflect the legal text can be summarised as follows:

🔹If you live in a Level 3 or Level 4 Local Authority area you can take part in organised sport, activity or exercise in that area only, with the exception of point 3 below.

🔹You should not travel out of your Local Authority area, if it is at Level 3 or 4, to undertake organised sport, activity or exercise (exception:  u18s in a level 3 area can travel into other areas for allowable organised sport, activity and exercise).

🔹At Level 3 and 4 you can travel to a place up to 5 miles outside your Local Authority area to take part in informal exercise (household rules apply) as long as you start and finish at the same place. Please note, this exemption no longer permits travel for over 18's for any organised sport or physical activity. 

The above guidance around the 5 mile travel restriction has now changed 3 TIMES WITHIN 3 WEEKS. We have pushed hard against the tightening of travel for sport and physical activity, but it is now in legal form and the full text can be found here: https://www.legislation.gov.uk/ssi/2020/389/part/4/made

Again, please don't shoot the messenger, this Regulation is much wider than sport and physical activity, but there is clear reference to permitted travel for the activities within the text.

Full details can be found in the attached full Equestrian Guidance.
