The Liverpool Horse Show sponsored by Voltaire Design have cancelled their 2021-22 event. The event was due to run from New Years Eve until 3rd January 2022 at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool.
Organisers have stated that is it is with “huge regret” and a “very difficult decision” but that it was the only “responsible thing to do”
“With the ever-changing Covid-19 environment and with the recent announcements made by the Government and the Liverpool Health Protection Board, which oversees the city’s response to the pandemic, as event organisers the risk associated with responsibly staging an indoor event of this kind after Christmas, with respect to members of the public, and the knock-on implication of this risk to our loyal partners, suppliers, retailers, riders and their guests, is just too high at this time.”
Nina Barbour who is the show founded has said “We can only hope that our loyal supporters understand our genuine reasons for being forced to cancel this year’s event,” “The reality of the situation is that we have to measure the risks of moving forward with an indoor event in early January, with the facts and concerns that we currently face whilst having to carefully negotiate the ongoing uncertainty relating to this pandemic. “We feel that the only responsible thing to do is to make this decision now, and it goes without saying that we remain fully committed to supporting equestrian sport moving forwards and we will be throwing our energy into making all the exciting events that we have planned for 2022 truly the best experiences that we can for everyone involved.”
