Covid Statement

We welcome you and your family to CCCHT 2021. This year we have experienced a dramatic shift in our medical concerns surrounding COVID, as vaccination for adults and teenagers has allowed our families to return to a modified new normal. However, we still have a vulnerable population of young person’s not approved for vaccination, and individuals who chose not to obtain vaccination. USEF requires that we convey to our staff, volunteers, officials, eventers/families, and spectators a COVID plan which will be adhered to during our July 30 – August 1 eventing dates. We have contacted USEF for review, as well as Iowa Department of Public Health, and CDC to assure your health and welfare receive our utmost priority. 

The state of IOWA does not require face covering/masks, but as an Iowa business CCCHT can and, will ask that those individuals who are NOT VACCINATED for COVID to wear a face/covering/mask as they enter the park and to maintain coverage unless riding or eating. Fully vaccinated individuals for COVID are welcome to enter the park without a mask. Any individual may choose to wear a face covering/mask regardless of vaccination status.   


When in a group setting – office visits, reviewing scoring, meals, spectating, or barn endeavors please self-distance at least the standard 6 feet.

Please use hand sanitizer judicially which will be located at barns, rings, warmup, food venues, and toilets.

Signs will be posted as a reminder to monitor for COVID symptoms, personal hygiene and safe distancing.
