Black Prong COVID Policy

The management of the Black Prong Equestrian Village has always placed our guests and exhibitors first in our decision making.

  • Social distancing of at least 6’ MUST be maintained between each person at all times.
  • Please use trash receptacles, so that the staff does not have to come in contact with potentially contaminated items that are not discarded properly.
  • All guests and competitors are responsible for monitoring their own personal and family health prior to, during and after attending the facility.

Wash Your hands frequently
Hand sanitizer will be located around the grounds. Please follow CDC recommendations and wash or sanitize frequently.

Clean your stuff
Exhibitors should frequently clean and disinfect all tack, equipment and surfaces that others come into contact with. This includes tack trunks, golf carts, lead ropes, etc.

Cleaned & disinfected stalls
