Workshop Testimonials




Due to the Covid-19 situation, we are implementing some changes to this year’s workshops:

    * We have eliminated auditors & are only allowing friends & family affiliated with each participant

    * We have reduced our charges by 15%

We will be complying with state & county regulations in order to ensure the safest health practices possible. Safe distancing procedures will be adhered to at all times.  Our two observation decks will allow for ample separation and all activities will occur outdoors, including meals on the patio. Each rider will be assigned to their own grooming/wash areas and shall provide their own grooming equipment. The above mentioned areas and stalls will be disinfected regularly. At this time masks are not required while riding, but otherwise recommended during all social interaction.

We appreciate the cooperation and flexibility of our participants during these challenging times. Despite the inherent restrictions, we strive to maintain the fun, comfortable atmosphere and the excellent learning environment that define our workshops.
