Pontispool is following guidance from the BHS (British Horse Society) in relation to Coronavirus.

Please click on the link to see the latest BHS statement:

We are monitoring the coronavirus situation daily and currently our arena and gallop remain open for schooling as it is deemed appropriate for recreational riding to continue, including training and clinics providing you follow the Government guidelines on hygiene and social distancing.

Due to concerns relating to putting additional pressure on the emergency services, we do not feel it appropriate to open for cross country schooling on grass at this time.

We will follow Government guidelines and keep you informed by our Facebook Page and website.

We expect everyone to adhere to the guidelines issued.

  • If you feel unwell, please do NOT come to the venue.
  • Wash your hands more often than usual. Wash for at least 20 seconds using soap and hot water.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or with your sleeve if you don't have a tissue, and throw the tissue away immediately. Immediately wash your hands or use hand sanitising gel.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products.
  • Be prepared to self-isolate - plan how it will impact on your day-to-day requirements.
  • Plan ahead for your situation, which might include alternative care for your horse if you need to self-isolate.
  • Use Health Services wisely.
  • Stay up-to-date with trusted sources of information.

The Cafe is now closed under government restrictions.
