Howick cancellation statement

Sadly due to the impact of Covid restrictions, Howick 18-19 May and Chepstow at Howick 3 - 4 July have been cancelled.

As Howick is in Wales, the event is subject to different Covid regulations to English events. 

We have today received confirmation from the relevant Authorities that our May event will not be able to run under the current and emerging regulations in Wales and with a heavy heart we have made the decision to cancel this event.

It is clear that the Welsh Government is being more cautious and planning test events before allowing large events and due to this ongoing uncertainty we have taken the decision to also cancel Chepstow at Howick on 3rd & 4th July.

As organisers reaching such a decision is not taken lightly and we are very sorry for any disappointment caused. The timing of this decision will enable our fabulous volunteers to plan alternative arrangements, our suppliers the chance of seeking alternative English venues and other events in England to offer additional/alternative provision for competitors. We appreciate your understanding in balancing a myriad number of considerations to reach the most appropriate decision for all stakeholders.

We very much hope that 2022 will see the return of our events and we can look forward to welcoming you back to Wales and our horse trials.
