Hello Herd!

Your herd Mare Ruthanna, here again with a BRIDGES herd update:

Wow. What a difference a day makes… and then the next it all changes again!

After an apparent reconsideration, the County of Orange put out a “just kidding” retraction of their previous order that saw all businesses except essentials closed. SO, we are once again, good to do go!

That said, we’re all scrunched into the covered arenas due to the rain, so we are suspending all beginning lessons, including private and level 1 lessons with the exception of leases and sponsorships.

We will be practicing our social distancing and taking some extreme measures to see that we minimize contact with each other. We ask that you stay in your car until it is time to ride. We will tack and untack your horse.

You will show up, we’ll give you a squirt of hand sanitizer, have you hop on, ride, hop off, another squirt and off you go!

We will not be loaning helmets or boots, so if you do not have this equipment you’ll either need to purchase it, or reschedule your lesson.

We will work on this scale through the end of the month. We should have outdoor arenas back up and be able to spread out a little more.

We will be “fanning out” the schedule so that we don’t have more than 4 people at the barn at the same time.

These things are changing hourly, so stay tuned for updates! I will be posting updates on the Website and our Facebook page starting tomorrow am.

Most importantly, THANK YOU, from the bottom of my heart, for the outpouring of support. Your support will keep the herd together. It certainly is keeping ME together!
