COVID-19 Action Plan for Competitions – Revised 5/05/20

 

Page of 16

A. Purpose & Scope

The US Equestrian Federation is dedicated to ensuring the safety and welfare of horses and all participants. As we begin to navigate the “new normal” at USEF competitions and events, we have centralized the requirements and recommendations from public health experts that will be in effect at USEF competitions. While there is no way to eliminate all risks related to COVID-19, the following requirements and recommendations are aimed to decrease the risk of COVID-19 infection. These requirements and recommendations are intended to ensure USEF organizers and participants are following the most recent guidance from federal, state, and other public health officials. As that guidance continues to change, the content of this action plan will be modified to reflect those changes.

These requirements and recommendations for operating USEF-licensed competitions are in effect immediately and until further notice, however, they are subject to modification as the guidance from the government and public health officials’ changes.

We are all in this together and the situation requires that each and every one of us take personal responsibility for the health, safety, and welfare of ourselves, our family members, and our colleagues and peers in the competition environment. Whether participant, competition organizer and staff, or vendor and support personnel, we each need to exercise caution, take precautionary measures, be accountable, and utilize good judgement at all times while interacting with one another at competitions.

US Equestrian will continue to monitor the situation, consult with you and make adjustments as warranted. For the latest information regarding the outbreak, please visit the USEF Coronavirus Disease Resources and Updates web page. For additional tools and resources specific to competition organizers, please visit the Competition Safety and Biosecurity webpage and reference the Additional Resources page at the end of this document.

**Once USEF receives notification of the FEI’s Guidelines, we will issue any necessary updates to this protocol document.

COVID-19 Action Plan for Competitions – Revised 5/05/20 Page 11 of 16


Recommended Best Practices for Competition Organizers

The following Recommended Best Practices have been provided to assist Competition Organizers with determining risks and developing measures to mitigate those risks. Please note these are not mandatory, however USEF strongly encourages their implementation.

N. General Considerations

  •   Consider limiting the number of entrances and exits to the venue to manage the number of individuals accessing the competition grounds.

  •   Communication – Use radio, phone and online communication methods as much as possible and communicate important information frequently throughout the competition grounds.

  •   VIP and other social areas are strongly discouraged unless social distancing requirements are enforced in accordance with all applicable federal, state and local regulations, requirements and orders as well as WHO recommendations and CDC guidelines as they relate to mass gatherings and sporting events.

    O. Considerations for Facilities, Staff, Medical Personnel, Service Providers & Volunteers

 Cleaning/Sanitizing Locations
Provide hand sanitization stations with access to soap and water or alcohol based

hand sanitizer at each competition area and schooling/warm up area.
Provide hand sanitizer to all officials, ring crew, office staff and maintenance staff. Frequently sanitize surfaces touched by many: door handles, arena gates, wash

racks and hoses, etc.
Ensure frequent cleaning and sanitizing of bathrooms, provide soap and water or

alcohol based hand sanitizer in bathrooms. Prohibittheuseofpublicwaterfountains.

 Competition Office
Stronglyencourageallcompetitorstocompleteentryforms,intheirentirety,

including having all requisite memberships in place, prior to entering competition

office.
Strongly encourage that all entries, adds, scratches, feed & bedding orders,

billing/invoicing are done electronically.
Install clear plastic, glass or other type of protective shield/barrier in front of office

staff.
Providehandsanitizernearthedoor.
Provide an ‘in’ door and an ‘out’ door, if possible.

COVID-19 Action Plan for Competitions – Revised 5/05/20 Page 12 of 16


Recommended Best Practices for Competition Organizers - continued

 Service Providers and Vendors
Advise any service providers (e.g. vendors, food-service, farrier, feed suppliers,

waste disposal personnel) to take precautions in accordance with federal, state,

local and facility regulations and CDC guidelines.
For onsite food-service, consider requesting provision of pre-packaged food only.

P. Competition, Schooling and Exercise Area Considerations

  •   Utilize posted orders of go and/or published ride times including online orders of go and ride times.

    At venues with multiple competition areas, consider designating one area as primary where assigned times and/or orders of go take precedence.

  •   Consider scheduling course walks as necessary to comply with social distancing requirements (e.g., schedule small groups in separate sections).

  •   Utilize individual water bottles versus community water coolers.

  •   Limit and organize seating areas to comply with social distancing requirements.

  •   Restrict the number of people accompanying a horse to the competition area to those

    persons who are needed for safety or for achieving effective competition, but they all must

    comply with social distancing requirements.

  •   Schooling and exercise area provisions:

Provide monitors to ensure compliance with requirements and best practices.
Schooling jumps - Provide sanitizing items (spray bottles, wipes) at each competition

arena and schooling/warm-up area and advise individuals to wear gloves while

handling the jumps and to wipe down jump equipment after use.
Determine equine/human capacity in relation to the area and restrict access to a

limited number in order to maintain social distancing requirements.

  •   In classes where participants compete collectively, determine and communicate to

    participants, the maximum number of horses permitted in each competition area at one time based on the size of the competition areas and social distancing requirements.

     Communicate with participants if classes will be divided and held in one or more sections.

  •   Consider utilizing technology for information transfer to mitigate the risk of virus spread by the manual transfer of paper (i.e. judge’s cards, scoresheets, etc.).

  •   Create a method of giving ribbons and trophies that reduces or eliminates hand-to-hand contact.

    Q. Stabling Considerations

  •   Restrict access to the stabling areas to veterinarians, athletes, officials, grooms, trainers and other essential personnel.

  •   Remind all personnel in the stabling areas to comply with all best practices and guidelines in effect at the competition.

  •   Provide hand sanitization stations in the stabling area and encourage stable personnel to use frequently.

    COVID-19 Action Plan for Competitions – Revised 5/05/20 Page 13 of 16

page13image62449024

Recommended Best Practices for Participants

Although not mandatory, Participants are strongly encouraged to follow the Recommended Best Practices listed below at all times while present on the competition grounds.

R. Access & Monitoring Considerations

  •   Provide non-contact thermometers (e.g., temporal or infrared) to staff and require temperature monitoring throughout the day.

  •   Limit access to stabling area and competition grounds to essential personnel only; discourage multiple family members from accompanying owners and riders.

Consider having riders meet their horses at the competition or schooling areas or other pre-designated area to further limit contact in the stabling area.

Consider the use of mounting blocks to avoid one-on-one contact between riders and grooms/assistants.

 Provide adequate food and beverage supplies for your barn and your support staff for the duration of the competition to avoid unnecessary community exposure.

S. Cleaning & Sanitizing Considerations

  •   Provide hand sanitizer, gloves, masks, and other PPE deemed necessary to your barn staff and other personnel and encourage them to use these items on a regular basis.

  •   Do not mix equipment (tack, grooming supplies, lead shanks, etc.) and sanitize between each use.

  •   Regularly sanitize bikes/motorbikes/golf carts/car & truck door handles, stable doors, bucket handles, light switches, etc., and equipment including tack, grooming, feeding, stall cleaning materials, etc.

    T. Scheduling Considerations

 Schedule competition days (ride times, schooling times, etc.) as efficiently as possible to minimize time spent on the competition grounds each day.
