Equestrians who want to take part in the annual Tcu Equestria event on Saturday are required to take a test that will determine if they can safely do so.
The Tcu, which is the national horse club of Romania, has had an annual equestria festival for nearly 70 years and has been the source of many tragedies.
The Tcu has had a large number of horse deaths, and in 2016 it announced it would not allow the competition to be held due to a new coronavirus warning.
Organizers said the new coronax virus had forced the cancellation of the festival, which was to take place on Saturday.
Organizer Andrzej Cezare said on Twitter that the club had asked for an emergency ruling to be issued, but had not received it.
The Tciu equestrians were asked to take the test before they left the venue, according to a statement posted on Facebook.
The statement said the testing is done by the national health service and that the results are given to the Tcu.
The results will be sent to the president of the federation.
The test results will determine whether the equestrators can safely participate in the Tcius equestraires and the decision on the result will be final, the statement said.
Organizations that want to participate in this year’s event were asked on their Facebook page to submit their test results before leaving the venue.
