While you may be aware that other parts of our state are beginning to open; it is not safe for us to do so. Prince George's County currently has 10,400 confirmed cases and over 350 deaths. Our county leaders have sent notice that no gatherings of more than 10 people should be held before June 1st. We must continue to do what's right and necessary to protect our collective health & well-being.
We have made the decision to Shut Down our facilities until further notice! This means Cancelling all of our events & large gathering until our county executives complete their road map to recovery!
Currently, our Open Horse Show schedule is as follows
June 20th & 21st
August 8th & 9th
September 26th & 27th
October 17th & 18th
October 24th & 25th
HOWEVER, these dates are still subject to change.
We would also like to hold a Fall Tack Swap on September 12th.
Our Garden Sprouts will begin on September 24th
#1 Although, we STRONGLY ENCOURAGE QUARANTINE & SOCIAL DISTANCING, however, we understand that horses have to eat. Please take all precautions when in public (including at the barn, farm or small horse related gatherings). Wash hands, do your best to NOT touch your face, spend time in the open fresh air & sunshine, DO NOT share food or drinks with ANYONE, STAYING AWAY from those who are more susceptible to infections, and, just as important, clean as many possibly contaminated items as you can.
#2 We are ALL uncomfortable with these changes! The Maryland Horse Industry Board is doing their best to make sure that you & your equine friends are taking care of. Please refrain from feeding into the negativity. Work with your Farm/Barn Managers & DO NOT RISK THEIR BUSINESSES! THIS TO SHALL PASS.
#3 Should ANY changes in state and/or county regulations be made, we will adhere to them & keep everyone abreast of these changes via freestateridingclub.org & the Free State Riding Club Facebook page
