Mid States Prepares to Continue with the Mid States Summer Series!
Mid States Spring – June 3-7, 2020
Mid States Summer – June 10-14, 2020
We at Mid States Horse Shows, LLC hope that this message finds you well, and that you and yours are staying safe, happy, and healthy during these strange times. The effects of the COVID-19 pandemic are being felt in numerous ways throughout the world, and the equestrian community is no exception.
The USEF competition suspension is set to expire on May 31, 2020 and all signs point to a situation where competition will be allowed to resume as long as local and state regulations allow that to happen. As a result we at Mid States are in communication with the Fairgrounds and the local and state government to determine if we will be allowed to operate. From an operational standpoint we are proceeding as if the competitions will take place, and we hope that you will join us!
Of course, the return to horse showing will not be an instantaneous jump back to the way things used to be. The shows will be required to operate under some protocols and best practices that promote a safe competition environment, continued social distancing, and is socially responsible not only for those involved with the horse shows, but also the greater community. Please stay tuned as we develop our protocols and best practices. We hope to have those documents available soon!
As we prepare to host these events, we are asking for your help. Please provide us with as much information about your needs as possible. This means letting us know how many horses and stalls you may be needing, providing us with your shavings and feed orders early, letting us know how many potential clients you will have attending, and what classes you are specifically interested in. We know that plans can change, and that things will be in flux, but any information you can provide will enable us to be best prepared to offer a product that suits everyone’s needs and keeps everyone as safe as possible.
We look forward to a time when we can return to this “new normal” and as always we thank you for your continued support and we hope to be seeing you soon!
Please submit any information, questions, or comments you may have to Dan Urban at 619-820-3802 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
