Safety & Prevention Guidelines:

  • The use of gloves is encouraged while in the schooling areas and while touching any shared surfaces. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Please frequently clean and disinfect all tack, equipment, and surfaces that others may come in contact with. This includes tack trunks, reins, halters, lead ropes, and other common items that others may come in contact with during event attendance.

Trainers are asked to ensure that everyone in their barn adheres to all guidelines. Trainers and all associated with their barn will be subject to expulsion from the grounds if guidelines are not followed.
