We designed these policies to work for equestrian sport, but please recognize that they are based on the uniform policies developed by the U.S. Center for SafeSport that will further protect minor athletes, under federal law. If a child is left alone with adult that isn't their parent/guardian they must have permission and pay the "DAYCARE" fee packages.
