Covid 19 Yard Rules
Yard Rules for Loch Ness Riding when coming to ride with us during the Covid 19 Pandemic.
Our horses rely on our staying healthy to look after them!
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you very much indeed for your custom and while all these rules must seem draconian, they are designed to keep us all safe and hopefully you will enjoy your session nevertheless. We look forward to easier times for all.
We will send you these rules to read before you come to our yard for your lesson/hack. We will also send you a rider registration form to fill in (if you have not ridden with us during the last 6 months). Please fill it in and scan it back to us by email – firstname.lastname@example.org
Riding must be paid for by bank transfer prior to the lesson/hack. Sort code 83-23-10 and a/c no 00131639 account Mrs C Cameron. In the event of your feeling unwell and either yourself or any member of your household having any Covid 19 symptoms please cancel your riding and we will fully refund your money
Please bring with you to the yard a mask to wear when you arrive with us and clean gloves if you prefer to ride in gloves. If you need to borrow any riding equipment by way of hat, boots, chaps, mask, please let us know in advance and give us sizes so that they can be ready for you beside the horse. Check that your own equipment is i.e. hat and body protector (if used) is up to the current standard and has the required kite mark.
When you arrive please park beside the green muck trailer outside the yard and hoot your horn. Please do not bring anyone with you to our yard. If you need to come with a driver then the driver will need to wait in the car for you. They will not be able to spectate. Please note that we are not allowed to offer toilet facilities to visitors at present either.
Someone will come and escort you from your car (at a safe distance) to your horse). You will then please use the hand sanitiser and put on gloves, if you require them, and be given your horse. You will mount and adjust your stirrups yourself and, if necessary, tighten your girth. You will maintain a distance of at least two metres from your coach/helper at all times.
At the end of the lesson/hack the horse will be taken away from you by your instructor and led to the stables to be untacked. You must then return directly to your car and leave the yard.
Thank you for your patience and acceptance of the rules. I hope this will give you a really great experience.
