We value creating a safe show environment for everyone, so we ask that you read the following COVID-19 rules. By entering the show, riders and their guests are agreeing to the following regulations:

  1. Social distancing (6 ft) must be maintained at all times when you are around people who are not from the same household. Please refrain from congregating around booths and tables.
  2. Face masks must be worn over the mouth and nose by all attendees AT ALL TIMES while on the show grounds unless mounted on a horse. Face masks must be of at least two layers and properly fitting, per the Center for Disease Control’s recommendation. Neck gaiters worn as a single layer, bandanas, masks with vents, single layer fabrics, mesh, or other masks listed as inappropriate by the CDC will not be allowed. All riders and guests must present their masks to BACH management at the facility entry to verify masks meet requirements. If, at management’s discretion, a mask does not meet safety guidelines, rider or guest may be required to purchase an appropriate mask from BACH.
  3. Only one non-competitor (groom/trainer) is permitted for each rider with the exception of junior/young riders who can also bring a single parent/guardian. All guests MUST register on the liability form to enter the facility, and unlisted guests will be turned away at the gate. Riders acknowledge that they are responsible for their and their guests’ and parents’ behavior, and that failure to follow these guidelines may result in disqualification and dismissal from the event, at BACH management’s discretion.
  4. Please self-assess for an elevated temperature (greater than 99.5 F), shortness of breath, coughing, and other signs of COVID-19 prior to coming to the show grounds. If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, please do not come to the show. If you have been exposed to anyone with COVID-19 within the 14 days prior to the show (with the exception of medical personnel exposed in the course of their work responsibilities while wearing properly fitted and approved PPE), please do not attend the show.
  5. The above rules are not negotiable. If you cannot adhere to these rules, please wait to attend our shows until these rules are no longer necessary for the health and safety of our participants.
