Happily, we have resumed lessons three days per week while we get the horses reacclimated to their jobs, and beginning the week of 6/22, we'll welcome new students to join us. We have a few new routines, including separate grooming buckets for each lesson horse, a bit dunk bucket for cleaning bits, and a tack wipe bucket for cleaning tack after lessons. (Things we should have been doing all along, but better late than never!)
Regarding masks, we are leaving it to your judgment. You may want to wear yours if there are multiple people in the grooming area or tack room. They are definitely not required while mounted. In order to reduce traffic in the barn, we ask that unless your child needs assistance tacking, parents remain outside. If you are running a fever, not feeling well or if you or anyone in your household has been exposed to someone with COVID-19, please stay home.
Many have asked if we'll be holding our Riding Academy sessions this summer, and the answer is yes. We will do our best to maintain social distancing and offer activities that will be both fun and safe. Registration forms are available on our Events Page.
