COVID-19 Update

Hello everyone 😊 We hope you are all well 🌻 we have some very happy and exciting news to share with all of you πŸ€—πŸ€—…. We will be partially, slowly and carefully REOPENING for SOME weekend lessons, starting Saturday 4th July πŸ˜ŠπŸ’ƒβ­οΈπŸ₯³πŸ™Œ there will be no weekday lessons just yet, please sit tight as this is only for the moment. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜ŠWe will start back with the more advanced lessons to allow for social distancing and to keep the numbers at the yard at a minimum and to stick within the COVID guidelines.

🌼Anyone showing any symptoms of being unwell please do not come to the yard

🌼When the time is right and when things are safer for everyone, we will then reintroduce all of our other lessons ( Including Beginner private and semi private lessons – beginner hour lessons – off lead half hour lessons and our lead rein lessons ) Unfortunately, there will be no camps this summer, we will really miss everyone and all the little ones πŸ₯Ί but we hope that we will be in a position to hold our annual Halloween πŸŽƒ camp, we will update you on this nearer to the time. We really really look forward to welcoming you all back for lessons, we know we will see some of you before we see the rest of you but it won’t be long and we’re moving in the right direction πŸ™πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜ŠπŸ˜Š we really can’t thank you enough for all enquiries and lovely messages over the last couple of months

🌻Starting from Saturday the 4th of July we will be introducing a new payment system for lessons where in we will require payment for a block of four lessons in a row. There will be a strict cancellation policy in place where you must give at least 24hour notice if you are unable to attend your lesson. There will be no refund given for anyone cancelling with less than 24hour notice or for any no shows. If you have given adequate notice in cancelling, your lesson and payment will carry forwards to the following week.

😊 IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN RETURNING TO LESSONS: We will be contacting all of you that we hope will be restarting lessons the weekend of July 4th by phone in the coming days, to confirm your lesson, some of the lessons have changed times, we have tried our best to keep them near to their original times. Our canteen and the office is closed. Only staff and riders are permitted in the yard and around the stables, for that reason we cannot have any helpers around the yard for the time being.

πŸ”Έ On arrival to the yard we are asking that only the rider leave the car ( ANYONE ELSE MUST PLEASE REMAIN IN THE CAR )

πŸ”Έ Rider must then proceed to hand sanitiser station and notice board on the left side of the office where they must use hand sanitiser provided and then please put on your riding gloves. This is also the notice area where you can check what horse you are riding and which arena you are in. There will be a postbox for you to drop your envelope to pay for your block of lessons: EXACT CASH ONLY please, which MUST be in an envelope with:

βœ… CAR REGISTRATION (essential and required for COVID tracing if needed )

πŸ”Έ You will then fetch your horse from the stable and make your way to the arena maintaining the 2meter social distancing rule at all times We have put a new one way system in place around the yard and on your first day back we will be on hand to show you this new system and to help you.

😊⭐️There will be staff on hand to supervise and to assist you ( If extremely necessary ) while you fetch your horse from the stable and make your way to the arena. All staff will be equipped with a mask, gloves, disinfectant wipes and a pocket hand sanitiser which they will use if they have to physically assist you in any way, to or from your lesson. All of our staff are currently in the process of being COVID trained and will hold a certificate of completion. All stable doors and all horses tack will be disinfected before and after each use.

β­οΈπŸ”Έ Every rider must have their own riding gloves, Helmet, body protector, boots and whip as we can no longer provide these items for sharing. Both SHOWTIME EQUESTRIAN – TRIM and EQUESTRIAN WORLD – MAYNOOTH are always very reasonable with price and usually have some great deals.

We understand that it will be the first time in a long time that we have all seen each other and that it’s going to be so good to reunite 🀩 but we are asking that when you arrive for your lesson and as you leave to please not stop or gather to chat and go straight back to the car after you’ve put your horse away .. and please always be mindful of others
