Below is the outline for our phasing transition for re-opening (*timelines subject to change based on any state and/or federal guidelines)
Phase 1 – Current Phase - Will be limited to specific unmounted programs that require little to no direct contact between participants, staff, and/or volunteers in which participants are independent under supervision such as prevocational programming.
Phase 2 – (Part A) Projected June 7th - Will permit lessons for ground and/or independently mounted lessons and/or require no "hands-on" assistance such as fully independent riders (Part B) Projected June 13th – Will permit direct therapy services of Hippotherapy OT/PT/SLP for participants that require less/minimal “hands-on” assistance for physical support and/or manipulation for all activities, safety, and/or balance.
Phase 3 - Projected June 15th (based on state regulations) - Will permit lessons requiring minimal assistance including leaders/spotters for ground and/or mounted lessons that require minimal "hands-on" assistance such as adaptive riding lessons.
Phase 4 – TBD (based on state regulations) – All programming will resume including lessons that require the full hands-on assistance of a therapist/instructors and/or volunteers.
