In the meantime, the britishhorseracing.com website on Brexit will be updated with the latest information as it becomes available, while professionals with questions will be asked to contact [email protected] for more information. We have an open and international perspective and our main priorities on the focus on Brexit to ensure the health and well-being of our horses in any future business environment and the future immigration policy that will allow us to recruit qualified staff for specialized roles that meet the requirements of our sector. In the event of a Brexit deal, Britain could be classified as a “third country” that would allow the free movement of horses. However, a non-agreement scenario could lead horses to pass through designated border inspection posts, with unavoidable delays. The steering group believes that the future immigration system must recognise the qualified nature of the work required to maintain racehorses and breeding stock and enable us to access the best international talent, while the sector continues to invest in the recruitment and engagement of UK staff (with separate sector plans). High-health horses in the UK have the same health status as in EU Member States and the task force calls for a trade agreement between the EU and Britain to take this into account. In January 2020, the United Kingdom withdrew almost all of its planning notes without agreement. However, they may be reintroduced under the same or similar conditions with respect to the 31 December retraction date. Most of the topics they address would be just as relevant to both a non-agreement scenario and a “skinny” trade agreement scenario, one or the other of which seems inevitable from January 1, 2021. The Irish government has indicated that if there is no agreement with the European Commission and EU member states, it will have to discuss agreements. In this scenario, the United Kingdom would be prepared to engage constructively in meeting our commitments and to act in the best interests of the people of Northern Ireland, recognizing the very important challenges that would be involved in the absence of a legal agreement between the United Kingdom and the EU in this unique and highly sensitive context. While British races are in regular contact with the relevant authorities to gather information and best prepare the sector for Brexit, some details still need to be fully clarified and the new travel rules will depend entirely on any agreement the UK government may make with the EU. In the absence of a transitional agreement or a specific agreement on the movement of horses after Brexit, the impact on the equine racing industry and the related companies will be considerable.
Horse Racing Ireland, the national authority for pure-blood horse racing in Ireland, estimates that there are 10,000 horse movements between the UK and Ireland each year, 7,000 horse movements between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, 5,100 between Ireland and France and 5,000 between the UK and France. In the absence of an agreement in accordance with the current framework, each horse will be subject to border safety and safety checks, with a risk of quarantine, significant delays in the duration of horse travel and additional burdens for the horse`s health.
