COVID-19 Information for Great Escape Stables clients.
GES is an open air barn (our stall windows and arena windows offer constant air circulation). We are also a small, private facility and can control our foot traffic as well as make sure touch points are minimized and continually sanitized.
-Only riders & their parent maybe in the barn.
-Everyone entering the barn must wash hands at hand washing station.
-Anyone sick or feeling sick must stay home. Likewise if you have been around anyone sick.
-No "hanging out" any one wishing to talk to others must do so at least 6' away.
-No borrowing anything from anyone.
-Riders should put on their gloves as soon as they washed their hands.
-No more then 2 people in the viewing room/tack room at a time and no one should be in there just chatting.
-GES provides hand soap and back up hand wipes as well as spray disinfectant. Please make sure to have your own bottle of hand sanitizer available for personal use.
In addition to our regular barn policies the following is in place for our camps.
Please note that Summer Day camp will take place 99% OUTSIDE! Campers will only be in the club house to stash their backpacks & get their lunch.
-Masks are REQUIRED by everyone campers & staff (provided there is no medical reason someone can't), except during lunch.
-Sinks will be available for hand washing & along with a customized portable restroom flush toilet and sink.
-Everyone attending camp will be required to carry hand sanitizer with them.
- Riding gloves should be worn when in the barn.
-While campers will be assigned grooming tools & parts of horses to keep them separate at lesson time ONLY CIT's will handle tacking up.
- During grooming time the horses will be spread out in the aisle or tied in the indoor.
- Touch points will be disinfected at lunch and after camp.
- Any activity that is "group" requires social distancing. Campers may not be sitting on laps, hugging, hanging or touching others, no piggy back rides etc.
-Any activity that involved campers touching something like the feed scoop (would be disinfected between campers and helping with feeding would be set up in a way that campers would say stand at stall doors and be called to the feed room to make their horses food instead of lining up).
-Our camp day schedule maybe altered slightly this year to help accommodate social distancing and safety of campers and staff. Our goals with our policies and procedures is to maintain the health and safety of all while still making sure campers are having fun.
Any additional policies or procedures that are put in place will be emailed at the beginning of June.
