With the middle of June having arrived, and with it the time frame I had set aside for making the final decision concerning the summer horse camp program. For the safety of all concerned, ourselves as well as participants, we have, of course, been closed to the public since February.... no students, no visitors. Having the type of program where close contact, and often hands on procedures are at times necessary for the safety of students ( i.e. mounting, dismounting, assisted riding for novices, etc.), we have decided to follow the course of action taken by most equine programs/camps and remain closed this summer season.

I realize this is a disappointment for our students, but by doing this I can assure people when we start up again that we are free from being a source of contamination. Possible sources of contamination could be: helpers, pitch forks, rakes, wheelbarrows, brooms, grooming kits, halters, tack ( i.e. saddles and bridles), club room facility, helmets, door handles, and on and on. It is only by remaining closed for this season that we shall be able to open up later on knowing we have done absolutely everything possible to be socially safe. Closed for the first summer in over 35 years. No students, no visitors.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may present, but thank you for your co-operation.  Hoping to meet new participants, as well as connecting again with our "Old Timers", when these trying times are over.  Mary L.
