COVID-19 Protocols

Safety is an every day part of equestrian life, and now more than ever we are taking steps to keep our community as safe as possible.  Find out more about how you can responsibly visit us at Bennett Farms.

Staying Safe Together

Fortunately, the nature of working with horses has allowed us to continue to stay open during these difficult times.  We work our horses outside and our barn has open breezeways, which make it safer for us to be around others, and horseback riding is a relatively individual sport, which helps us all keep our appropriate distance.  However, it takes each of us to do our part to protect ourselves and those around us.  In order to keep everyone safe, it is critical for each individual to be diligent.
