2020. Events Angelstone COVID-19 Updates Rules & Regulations

Rules will be updated as Provincial Regulations Change

1) Angelstone Farms has implemented COVID measures to slow the spread of COVID-19 in the workplace. Under current rule 82/20, the care of horses at a boarding stable or place that houses horses is an essential business. We will be allowing only essential personnel on the property. The list of essential personnel permitted on the Angelstone property is attached in appendix 1.

2) Daily exercise is an essential service and will be available in the Astalos, Lunging ring, and EEC warm-up ring. Social distancing measures will be strictly enforced at all times.

3) Training and Competition at a facility that is a member of a National Organization funded by Sport Canada is considered an Essential Workplace. These competitions will only be available to horses who are stabled at Angelstone Farms, and to those who reserve a ship in location through our online system. For ship ins, we will allow a maximum of 10 trailers daily to ensure we stay well below the 100 gathering number set forth by the province. Ship ins must be reserved through the online system on our website. Competition is only open to athletes who have a valid Equestrian Canada membership. Competitions will be hosted by our parent company, Angelstone Tournaments. These competitions will take place in designated competition areas, and will take place without spectators. Competition areas will be open to competitors and trainers only, and anyone with access to the competition area must have a valid Equestrian Canada Membership.

4) Every stable must submit their list of essential personnel by email to office@angelstone.ca 24 hours prior to arrival on the Angelstone property. Accreditation will be available upon arrival to the property. No one will have access to the stabling or competition areas without proper accreditation. Appendix 1 outlines the list of approved personnel.

5) Appendix 2 will outline the responsibility every essential personnel has prior to arrival on the Angelstone Farms property. We expect every person to take this seriously, and act in a safe and professional way.

Checkpoint for Entry

There will be a checkpoint when entering the Angelstone property. The checkpoint will be to ensure everyone is an essential personnel and is authorized to be on the grounds. People not on the list will not be allowed to enter the grounds under any circumstances. Temperature checks and verbal health checks will be conducted prior to access to the grounds being granted. Accreditation will be available here for people arriving for the first time, along with a waiver that must be signed by everyone.

Stabling Area Management

All horses must be stabled on the Angelstone property by 11 pm the day before they compete. The stables will be closed to all vehicles at all times during competition hours. Therefore, if arriving during competition hours, horses must be unloaded in the parking area and led into the stables. There will be a mandatory check-in at the gate for new arrivals to ensure they are not competing day of arrival.

The Angelstone Stables will be enforcing social distancing protocols. Stables will be spread out throughout the property, with approximately 65% occupancy. The secured area of each isle will be accessible to the essential personnel of that isle only. A person will not be allowed to be an essential person in two isles. This will be strictly enforced.

Hay and Shavings deliveries will be done prior to arrival, and will only be available on Mondays between competitions. All deliveries after your arrival will be delivered to the entrance of your secured area.

The Angelstone staff cannot enter your secured areas unless there is an emergency.


Every isle will have its own washroom and hand sanitization station within their secured area. It will be the responsibility of each individual to clean and disinfect their washroom prior to use, as the Angelstone Staff will not have access to your isle. The Toilet company will clean washrooms twice weekly. Every horse will have a $25 surcharge for washrooms and COVID safety costs.


Every isle will have its own garbage can. Garbage bags will be provided prior to arrival, and garbage must be dumped into two central dumpsters on the property.
