We regret to announce that we have taken the difficult decision to cancel Equifest (Wednesday 19th August to Sunday 23rd August) 2020. Following the guidelines which have been set out by the government for the forthcoming months, it will not be possible for us to hold the event this year. Our paramount concern is for the health and wellbeing of our competitors, exhibitors, judges and stewards during this time. It would not, therefore, be possible to plan and run an event of this scale whilst Covid-19 is still prominent throughout the country and we hope for your support on this decision.
This is an unprecedented and challenging time for everyone and with Equifest being the largest amateur horse show in the UK health and safety has to remain our number one priority. For those competitors who have entered online, refunds will be issued soon. Any cheques received that have not yet been presented will be destroyed. Any cheques already paid into our bank will be refunded. All exhibitors booked will also be refunded. We will be working to get these all done as soon as possible for you all.
In the meantime keep an eye on our social media channels for more information.
We look forward to seeing everyone at next year’s show.
For your diary, the dates for 2021 are the 18th – 22nd August 2021.
We wish you all the best and stay safe.
