COVID 19 Policies

Mitey Riders has taken several steps to protect our riders, volunteers and staff during the COVID 19 pandemic.  

Phased Riding

Operations during the pandemic were restricted.  We limited class numbers to increase social distancing and minimized direct contact.

As conditions improve, we are planning to open our Fall 2021 riding season to all our riders who are still physically eligible to ride and who meet any COVID-19 precaution requirements in place at that time (e.g. mask-wearing, vaccinations if eligible/required, etc.).

Masks, Social Distance, and Sanitizer

Masks and COVID-19 vaccinations (if eligible) are REQUIRED for everyone on Mitey Rider property. We have implemented changes in routine that allow for social distancing. Hand sanitizer is required upon arrival and is available throughout the barn.

Safety Protocols in the Barn

Equipment is cleaned after each use and in between riders.  Barn surfaces are disinfected daily.

Attendance & Visitors

The farm is closed to unscheduled visitors. Our waiting areas are currently closed. We track attendance and conduct a COVID-19 health screening prior to entry to barn activities. ALL VISITORS to the farm will be required to have a COVID-19 vaccination.

COVID Vaccine & Mask Policy (10/01/2021)

All Volunteers: Vaccinations and masks are required.

Riders: Riders are required to be vaccinated if they are eligible and also required to wear masks. Family members of riders who are ineligible for vaccination (e.g. due to rider’s age) must be vaccinated.

Mask Policy: All riders and volunteers are required to wear masks while attending and riding in the Mitey Rider program.

Local conditions will be monitored for changes to this policy.
