COVID-19 Protocols for the 2020 Show Season

*Please note that each venue may require different protocols than what is listed below, they will be posted per show.

If you feel sick, are at risk, are exposed to someone at risk, or have travelled outside of the country within 14 days, please do not come to the show.

Please enter AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so that we can have a clear idea of how many individual riders will be entered at each show. All information is available at www.acha.ca/schedule.

There will be separated areas for competitors and spectators at Silver Slate Arena and the Ponoka Ag Society. These areas will be labelled and signage will be in place. We ask that spectators, whether you are a spouse, friend or fan, please watch on the clearly labelled spectator bleachers and use the spectator bathroom and entrance. During the show, we ask that competitors and spectators do not mingle. We must keep all competitor and spectator numbers under the Alberta Health Services guidelines and want the focus of this show to be on the cuts running smoothly and everyone able to prepare properly for their class, we are asking that if possible, fans, friends and spouses stay home.

Hand sanitizing stations will be available and wearing a mask is encouraged.

Social distancing rules apply for both spectators and contestants in all areas on grounds.

Only the herd showing, and the next herd will be allowed inside the arena at one time. All other riders are asked to prepare outside. 

To abide by all regulations from Alberta Health Services and keep a safe environment for all, we ask that you please leave the facility as soon as you can, and keep all horses in stalls, trailers or tied to trailers. Not inside. 

We are excited to get back to cutting. Thank you for your understanding and patience while we navigate these uncharted waters.
