OUR COVID-19 RESPONSE
To support a safe environment for all, we are running two sessions a day with each session limited to 15 participants.
What are we doing at A Lotte Horses to minimize Covid-19 risk?
Everyone must wash their hands with soap and water for 20 seconds upon arrival at the ranch.
Only one person or an adult and child are permitted in the tack room at a time.
Pet the animals but remember not to kiss them!
Each day we start with circle time where we review elements of safety.
We ask everyone to avoid coming to the ranch if you feel at all unwell. This is a time where we are taking big steps to trust each other in making decisions regarding our health and our family's health. This is our highest priority.
What we are not doing at A Lotte Horses:
We are not all wearing masks all the time. These inhibit our ability to communicate in the outdoors. Our instructors will wear masks when working closely with the children.
We are not enforcing a 6ft distance but will spread out whenever possible and encourage space awareness.
