Stone Gate Farm Reopening Announcement

Effective May 1st Until Further Notice



Stone Gate Farm has developed a NEW protocol for those coming to the farm due to the current situation with the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to provide as safe of an environment as possible and to follow the CDC and ODH guidelines. Please read the following guidelines:


  • All farm business will be done electronically to reduce the person to person contact including the following:

  • pre-registered ONLY

  • Payment

  • release form

  • coggins

  • The release form and the coggins only must be submitted ONCE for the season unless the coggins expires, then the new coggins will have to be uploaded

  • Registrations will be limited and scheduled in such a way as to have as few people on the premises as possible.


WHEN and HOW is Stone Gate Farm going to open?


  • Competition Numbers will be assigned, and participants will have to make their own.

  • The Trail Challenges 'walk through' will NOT happen at the competitions but there will be a virtual walk through posted on the website a week before the competition

  • Social distancing will be strictly enforced, and we ask that anyone who is sick or who has been exposed to anyone who has been sick to stay at home.

  • Avoid touching any surfaces unnecessarily.

  • PLEASE bring your own hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes. Wipe down the surface of anything that you may touch before and after touching it.

  • Porta Jons with hand sanitizer will be available and will be disinfected regularly. Again, please wipe down before and after use.

  • If stabling, leave at least one stall between horses.

  • Bring your own food and drink

  • No food available for purchase at this time

  • Potluck lunches for clinics are cancelled

  • There is a possibility that the food truck will be available at the Hunter Pace where you will pre-order and then pick up to avoid close contact and waiting in lines
