I’D LIKE TO BRING A FRIEND OR PARTNER WHO DOESN’T RIDE. IS THAT FINE?
Of course. We offer a non-riding price for guests who wish to stay with us and enjoy the non-riding elements of the weekend including dinners and chats. We will even organise activities for them while the riding is going on, so they can everything our beautiful destination and base for the weekend has to offer.
IS THE WEEKEND COVID SAFE?
We know this is top of both your and our minds right now, and that’s why we’re going above and beyond to ensure your safety with regards to COVID-19. We will be working within all the current governmental COVID guidelines for all our rides, dinners and hospitality, reducing capacity for the weekend and adhering to any distancing rules that are in place across the hospitality industry at the time. We will be bringing on additional staff to ensure the highest standards of health and safety compliance, consulting specifically with regards to COVID regulations and best practice. We will also be working with all our hotel and venue teams to take extra precautions with regards to our groups, with additional staff to ensure cleaning and distancing standards are upheld.
Of course, in the event of regional lockdowns, major outbreaks, and travel bans we will assess the feasibility of the overall event based on government guidance at that time.
We will be adhering to UK government restrictions with regard to hospitality, events and tourism for our all UK based events, and if these do not permit our current capacity of guests, we will postpone the weekend to a later date.
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE EVENT IS CANCELLED OR POSTPONED?
We recognise that we live in uncertain times, so in the event our weekend is cancelled or postponed you will be offered a full refund for your booking. For reasons such as a COVID-19 national or regional lockdown, we will be postponing the weekend and setting a new date. You will have a 14 day cooling off period from the announcement of the new date to request a full refund. After that point, your booking will be transferred to the new date.
IF I’M SHOWING SIGNS OR TEST POSITIVE FOR COVID-19, CAN I STILL COME.
