Harding Heights Ranch Ltd. is sharing a COVID-19 update.
HHR will be re-opening next week YAY!!
Covid-19 precautions will be in place.
At this time we will only be open for lessons and trail rides.
NO birthday parties, camps or special events at this time.
Extra waivers to be signed COVID-19 Information & PoliciesHygiene Safety Regulations for Customers:
Horseback riding provides natural social distancing for guests and is a great way to breathe in the freshest air nature has to offer.
Masks must be worn at all times while you are on the ground, but can be lowered once you are moving on the horse.
Guests are asked to use hand sanitizers available on arrival and departure.
Social distancing rules apply – guests or bubbles (customer groups) and staff must keep a distance of at least 2 meters between one another.
All reins, saddles and helmets will be cleaned and sanitized between rides and there is increased sanitization of all high touch areas on the farm.
Harding Heights Ranch is a responsible small business in the West Kootenays that provides a wonderful service for kids and families.
Earlier this year, they made the decision to shut down their Horse Camps because of the pandemic sweeping North America and the World out of safety for kids in this area that love horses. They have been waiting patiently for this pandemic to subside before considering opening things up again.
Later in September, there are plans for a soft opening of the ranch to the public for horseback riding. Shauntelle Harding and Irene Harding will let people know more about this in later September 2020.
I assist them with managing their Harding Heights Ranch website at hardingheightsranch.com and it will be exciting to see kids riding horses again later this year. Randall McCallum Site Administrator
We will let everyone know when we will be open again, but at this time, May 28, 2020, we are closed due to the CoronoVirus and our insurance. Please be patient, as the horses will be ready when this all clears.
Learn how to draw an Easter egg folding surprise! We also give you the challenge to finish your drawing by adding more Easter decorations.
We hope you enjoy the Learning to Draw Series as a way to keep kids engaged and busy during the social isolation at home.
On Monday, we will learn to draw Captain Underpants.
Everyone in the world is being affected by COVID-19. Here in Canada it is highly recommended taking a precautionary measure called “physical distancing.” This means kids and adults should be at least one metre or even a horse length apart from others. Public health officials have also suggested that people stay at home and limit all non-essential trips. So what do you do to keep the kids busy?
With physical distancing and self-isolation becoming a part of our lives, each day we give you suggestions for how you can follow the guidance of health experts, while also keeping yourself and your loved ones busy and “out” in nature. After you do your birding, spend some time learning to draw a Big Easter Bunny Portrait.
On Friday we will learn to draw an Easter Egg Folding Surprise.
WHAT CAN KIDS DO TO STAY BUSY? GO BIRDING
Not all physical distancing activities need to happen indoors. Spring is here and many birds are getting ready for their northern migration. Birding by yourself or with your parents or parent is a perfect opportunity to not only distance yourself from others but to also gain a greater appreciation of the nature you have in your own backyard and this will help to relieve stress.
There are plenty of feathered friends and other urban wildlife that can be spotted from your window, or from the safety and comfort of your yard.
Remember! Tomorrow we will learn to draw an Easter Egg Folding Surprise.
It is tough staying inside and not being able to go play with your friends. To help kids adjust to being indoors with the social distancing rules in place we decided to teach kids how to draw. We found some excellent videos, and by following along with this video you will learn how to draw a horse!
Tomorrow we will learn to draw a big Easter Bunny portrait.
CORONA UPDATE: 🦠😷
We will be CANCELLING next week’s camps on Monday and Friday due to the increase of risk that the COVID-19 virus now brings.
We apologize for any inconvenience this brings.
We will be crediting those camps back to you for a later date as we do plan to host more camps once the threat of the virus has passed.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact us.
