FHE MASK POLICY
FHE falls under Yavapai County jurisdiction which has stated masks are not required and are a personal choice, however our local city and town mayors have issued a mandate requiring the wearing of masks in public places where social distancing is not possible. We feel that since 98% of time spent at the barn is spent outside where social distancing can be practiced, we will allow individuals to make their own decision about wearing a mask. We do ask that you continue to practice social distancing, hand washing and sanitizing according to FHE guidelines (below) when you are on the property. Thank you all for your continued cooperation.
We hope you and yours are all staying safe and healthy! We can assure you the horses are!
Here is an update regarding our policies surrounding the COVID-19 lesson schedule:
~ Horses will be brought up by an employee - please do not enter stall areas.
~ Students may now groom, tack & un-tack their own horses.
~ Limit of 2 observers per student/lesson
(exceptions may be made with advance notice & approval)
~ Stall areas & fields are off-limits to non-employees. Only employees are allowed in these areas until further notice.
~ We ask that parents remain in their car until the lesson begins and return to their car as soon as the lesson concludes. Please do not wait near the tack room. Parents of children under 6 may park closer to the tacking area. ONLY students or employees are allowed in the tack room.
~Deck between arenas is for instructors only. Additional seating is available at all arenas but must be disinfected after each use Please. You may bring your own chair.
We wish you all continued health!

We are a FULL CARE facility. We have excellent staff in place to make sure your horses are well cared for, safe, healthy and happy. There will be no disruption to your horses’ normal routine. We give daily medicines and can give IM injections. If there is anything we can do to make it easier to self-quarantine, please let us know and we will be happy to do so.
Please do not take risks with your health and safety, or that of others. If you, or anyone in your family, has been directly exposed to the virus or are exhibiting symptoms of illness (including fever, cough, body aches, etc.), please do not come to the barn.
We recognize that these are challenging times, and we very much appreciate your support in our efforts.
Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you navigate this challenging time or if you are self isolating, please let us know so we can happily send you updates on your horse.
As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out!
