On July 29, the United States Equestrian Federation sent an email to its members and competition organizers detailing new safety requirements for USEF shows.
The message, written by CEO William J. Moroney, stated the following:
“The ability to keep competitions operating depends on every one of us, individually and collectively. It hinges on our cooperative participation in efforts to control the spread of the virus.
With that in mind, effective immediately, USEF mandates the use of face masks/face coverings at all times while on the competition grounds except when mounted on a horse or driving a horse-drawn carriage or cart. The USEF Action Plan update, released yesterday, reflects this strengthened mandate.”
