BEST PRACTICES

For this show, we will be observing the following practices and expect competitors to comply with all signage and published information. Updates and additions to this list may be published at any time and will be distributed electronically to all competitors.

It is your responsibility to disseminate the information to everyone in your group.

Temperatures             Will be taken upon entering the facility every day. You should check your temperature before leaving for the show. Temperatures need to be 99.5 F (37.5 C) or below. If temperature is above 99.5 please contact show management and stay home.

USEF Waiver              Everyone entering the show grounds will be signing a NEW USEF Waiver and Release form.  Once you have signed the form, you will receive a bracelet that must be worn all weekend.  This includes all people in your group: owner, trainer, coach, groom, spouse, and parent.

Face Masks & Bracelets                Are REQUIRED TO BE WORN AT ALL TIMES. Each person is expected to bring their own mask. A participant may choose to wear a face mask or face covering when mounted on a horse and cannot be disqualified or penalized for doing so while competing. If you have an issue following the face mask or temperature rule you may be asked to leave the show grounds by show management.  If you have a doctor’s note stating you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask, you must submit it to the legal office at USEF. Please check the link on the USEF web site.

Social Distancing        A minimum of six feet separation is required. Groups who travel together, may work out their own distancing, but face masks must be worn at all times other than when mounted.

Hand Washing            Must be done often, in addition to the use of sanitizers. Wash stations are in many locations. Porta potties will be sanitized every couple hours.

Office Contact            Will be by text, email or telephone. If a problem is deemed to be too complicated, the office will be open. Masks must be worn and social distancing observed by everyone needing assistance. Rider packets will be available at the show office on a table for pickup.

Warm-up                     On show days, do not expect to enter any warm-up arena more than one hour prior to your designated time. Any equipment/attire/grooming/training items left unattended in any “common” area within the showgrounds will be removed. 5 horses per arena.

Allowed on grounds    Coaches, riders, trainers, grooms, spouses, and a parent if rider is a minor, will be allowed on the grounds. Each rider only gets 3 of those.  If your coach or trainer is on the grounds with their horse that is one of your people. The people on the ground with the rider must be essential to helping them with their horse. Each individual must be recorded with the office, must sign the USEF releases and must wear a wrist band at all times. No exceptions!

Hospitality                   All bleacher seating and hospitality areas will be closed. There will be some food available for purchase, on the show grounds. Management will be providing water for all competitors. It will be available by the arenas.

Spectators                   NO SPECTATORS ARE ALLOWED ON THE ON THE GROUNDS!

Awards                        Awards will be on a table near the show arenas, and competitors are to observe social distancing when picking up their tests, ribbon and/or trophy. The competitor may also bring a self-addressed, stamped envelope for tests to be mailed.

Scoreboard                 Classes will be on www.foxvillage.com and the final results for the day, will be posted at the show office.  Competitors are to observe social distancing when at the score board. Results may be emailed to competitor upon request.
