The DWDAM Committee has decided to postpone the 2020 Advanced Riding presentations, following a review of our plans in light of the current Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the UK.
The decision is based on the following factors:
- The risk of community transmission. IAM RoadSmart has cancelled a number of IAM meetings in the next few months, in order to mitigate the risk of community transmission. DWDAM has decided to follow their lead.
- Reduced attendance. The risk of community transmission may deter people from attending, reducing the effectiveness of the presentations.
- Potential Government Action. There is the potential for the UK government to ban large groups gathering in the future.
Doug Miners has agreed to support the Advanced Riding Lectures later in the year.
