As you all know, HorseDates has been an invaluable FREE service for Competitors since it's inception
many years ago and has established itself as the 'go to' website for events.However, a number of factors
(both current and over the last months/years) have forced us to re-evaluate the current situation.
We are hugely grateful to all Subscribers and Advertisers for the contribution they have made and continue
to make but with continued rising costs and major development aspects such as GDPR then unfortunately the
time has come for users/competitors to 'shoulder' some of this burden.
Thus to coincide with GDPR (which takes effect on 25th May 2018) or shortly thereafter HorseDates will
become a 'paid for' service in that to create or retain a User Account to access details of events
(in the East of England) there will be a nominal charge.
After over 10 years of a FREE Service, this has been a very hard decision to make and it is our hope that
this will be successful but if it is not then we will have to re-evaluate the future of HorseDates towards
the end of 2018.
Be assured we want to provide the best service possible to our users within the Equestrian Community and
continue to improve what HorseDates has to offer but this has to be viable and sustainable for HorseDates.
