The following restrictions must be observed:
6 feet of social distancing whenever possible. Please advise your child that hugging and other close contact activities are to be avoided.
All volunteers and participants 5 years of age and up are REQUIRED to wear a mask covering both their mouth and nose when within 6 feet of another person. As per rule #6 masks can only be removed when engaging in a permissible outside exercise while practicing social distancing of at least 6 feet; for eating and drinking; or when a medical condition prohibits the use or causes a greater health or safety risk (verified licensed medical practitioner note required). That means students must all have a mask on their person and know how and when to apply it. Students who are non-compliant to social distancing OR masking will be asked to leave.

Why are these important: to increase equine health and happiness while decreasing feed expenses, thus HHK will be able to obtain additional equines, which will permit an increase of ridership (up to 20%); to improve the comfort and safety of our medically sensitive clients (clients with MS, SCI, TBI, post-stroke, heart disease, and those taking certain medications (anxiety and depression meds) all have difficulty with thermoregulation); and to promote volunteer and instructor retention due to more comfortable working conditions for equines and staff. Off-grid office will also permit onsite record keeping and lesson planning, hence increasing job satisfaction, improved instructor retention, and increased quality and continuity of care for our clients.
