The Hoofbeat | June 2020

By Morgan Kastenek on Jun 30, 2020 at 10:50 AM in The Hoofbeat Newsletter

Hearts began its first phase of reopening at the beginning of this month. We plan to continue taking this transition very slowly and carefully so we can keep our staff, volunteers, and participants safe and healthy. We are following guidelines for social distancing, cleaning, and sanitizing set forth by Santa Barbara County.

Our programs are now modified to allow for lower-risk operations, including lessons provided to independent riders in the therapeutic riding program, Equine Services for Heroes, and most recently our summer camp, which is run in conjunction with SB Parks & Recreation. Our staff is evaluating our policies and procedures daily and making any necessary adjustments to keep our participants safe and healthy.
