We have finally managed to find someone who has helped us unlock our website… WordPress has been very difficult to get hold of but thanx to ParallaxStudios we have managed to get back in!!!
We will be doing a makeover and keeping everyone up to date with whats new and all our results etc
Let us know what more you would like to see….
Looking forward to the revamp 😊💃🏼
These last few months have been one of the toughest things for any of us to endure. It’s been a long and difficult time, but there has always been light at the end of the tunnel.
You have stuck it out and bore these strict regulations and we thank you for all your support, it really means a lot that you have kept our staff safe during this time.
With the relaxing of the restrictions announced this weekend, we will be opening up the yard a bit more, yay 👏🎉.
But…… as the president mentioned, with the opening up there will be even higher risks of contacting the virus…
With this in mind, we will be putting sanitising stations up in various areas around the yard.
There will still be areas that are out of bounds to all but our staff, please look for the signage.
You will now be able to saddle up and unsaddle your own horses, take them to and from their stables and spend a bit more time with them.
If any clients would still like the saddle up service, this can be arranged for a small fee. Please contact us if you would like this to continue.
Some additional rules:
Only 2 people in the tack room at a time and sanitize your hands on the way in.
MASKS ON ALL THE TIME !
Weekends, there will be times to come and ride no deviations, 7am-10am in mornings and 3pm-5pm afternoons. Social distancing to be adhered to at all times.
For those who ride on weekends, you will be responsible for putting your horses in paddocks in morning or into stables in afternoons after riding and cooling them down.
Please carry your Sanitizer with you and spray handles in paddocks and or stables doors etc.
Unfortunately, access control is still a requirement so remotes will not be reinstated at this time. We will still have check-in at the boom gate.
There are still no gatherings of more than 50 people permitted, but in saying this the sitting area on the benches will be opened up around both arenas.
Sitting area on couches will remain out of bounds until further notice.
In order to protect our staff and clients alike, we will enforce the rules. Infringements will lead to a ONE-week suspension for first offences and if it happens again, a further TWO-week suspension.
Please remember we are still under level 2. Social distancing at 2m apart and please carry your sanitizer with you and sanitize wherever you have sat.
The rules are for everyone’s safety and we appreciate your understanding.
As we have all been getting into the swing of things with this “New Normal” things are slowly starting to settle into a good routine.
The staff have been amazing and they have had the horses ready for the clients and take them as soon as they are finished.
Our Sanitizing protocols have been a pain in the butt for some but at this time we cannot have too much. Rather play it safe than be sorry.
We hope all our clients are happy and let us know if we can add anything into this new journey to help where at all possible 😀
Stay Safe and look after yourself and your loved ones
