Current Event Updates
We are aware that other parts of our state are beginning to open, & other organizations in our state have begun to hold small sporting events. Prince George's County currently has opened little by little & we hope that soon we will too. Our county leaders have sent notice that no sporting events should be held with no more than 50 people in attendance. Because of the nature of our horse shows we would have a maximum of 15-20 riders. At this time that is not feasible. We must continue to do what's right and necessary to protect our club & communities collective health & well-being.
We have made the decision to extend the shut down of our facilities until further notice. This means continuing to cancel all of our events & large gathering until our county executives complete their road map to recovery!
We are continuing to work with our judges & affiliates to get you into the ring ASAP this season!! NEW Open Horse Show schedule is as follows:
August 8th & 9th
August 29th & 30th
September 26th & 27th
October 17th & 18th
October 24th & 25th
November 14th & 15th
HOWEVER, these dates are still subject to change.
We will be holding our Fall Tack Swap on September 12th.
Our Garden Sprouts will begin on September 24th
We hope that everyone is doing their part in making our world a safer place!! THANK YOU!!!
#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
