Horse Sport Ireland encourages all those involved in the Equestrian community to continue to adhere to Government advice on the situation in relation to COVID-19. Horse Sport Ireland will issue regular updates to keep the equestrian community informed and please remember to only get your information through official sources.


The Government has published a National Action Plan on COVID-19.

Its main aims are to:

  • minimise the risk of people becoming unwell
  • minimise the health, wellbeing and social impact for people who may be at greater risk
  • reduce the economic and social disruption associated with the COVID-19 outbreak

The plan includes information on:

  • what we know about the COVID-19 virus
  • what the public can do to reduce the threat
  • the public health led approach being taken
  • supports for businesses and those who have lost their jobs
  • supports for vulnerable people in society
  • measures to ensure continuity of essential services
  • measures to protect vital supply chains

The Health Service Executive (HSE) is implementing a wide range of measures that are unprecedented in their scale and speed in order to face the enormous challenges that COVID-19 will pose in the coming weeks.

The plan will continue to evolve as the situation evolves.
