Waredaca Farm H.T.(Aug 2020)
At this time, we are planning to run this event subject to all Covid regulations in effect at the time. The safety of everyone involved is paramount and to that end, we will be strictly following our county, USEF, USEA, and any additional state recommendations related to the COVID-19 health status. Our intent is to follow the best practices put forth by all relevant governing bodies. THIS MEANS MASKS/FACIAL COVERINGS, PHYSICAL DISTANCING REGARDLESS OF FAMILY OR CLOSE RELATIONSHIPS AND PROPER HAND WASHING TECHNIQUE FOR EVERYONE VISITING FARM.
We are also using an all-electronic entry and payment that was 100% successful for our recent June competition. Any on-time entries still incomplete one week before the event will be charged $20 per missing item. This includes, signature pages, coggins, muck deposits, horse or rider numbers, etc. Missing Items fees will be enforced and no one will be scheduled until the entry is complete–documents and all fees. In addition to the required USEF and USEA documents for a complete entry, our Waredaca Waiver of Liability is also required-completed and electronically filed via our website for everyone on the farm-NO hard copies accepted. ONCE FILED, this COMPLETED document remains current ‘forever’. ALL non-competitors are also required to sign the USEF/USEA Waiver to be on grounds. Stay tuned to our website as to details about spectators and food vendors. VTO saddlery will be on site. Expect to find our revised dressage layout since June too! And with the popularity of our new Jumping phase Logistics, that will continue!
