Dear Quantum family,

As of this past Monday 9/21/2020, we’ve officially moved into Phase 2 of our re-opening plan!!! It’s such a pleasure seeing more of you back here, and in the saddle again. Even our horses are happy about it – they seem to have perked up seeing many of their old friends (and benefactors) arriving with carrots and other horse-treats. Thank you for your patience over the last few months. As always, the health and safety of Quantum’s staff, participants, volunteers and other visitors is our top priority and we remain committed to the well-being of our community.

As we move into Phase 2, we will continue to closely monitor local, state and federal public health authorities’ recommendations with regard to public safety. We ask that you do too, for the health and safety of our community and for your own family members. Personally, I feel that practicing social distancing and wearing a mask in public places is a small sacrifice to make considering that in the US we have now exceeded 200,000 deaths related to this pandemic. Doing the following things will help minimize the spread, especially with flu season coming and schools and other public venues re-opening. Please remember – outdoors is safer than indoors, masks are effective in helping to prevent spread, close contact with others and exposure to crowds should be avoided or minimized, and frequent handwashing all significantly reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19. At Quantum, we are compelled to be especially cautious because of our vulnerable clients. For this reason, we’re re-opening SLOWLY, with many precautions in place to minimize risk of exposure for our staff, participants and volunteers. Please see the buttons below for more information regarding our re-opening process and policies.

At Quantum, participants have a low-risk and much needed opportunity to socialize, and to be physically active and intellectually stimulated. We improve quality of life and cultivate human potential through equine-assisted therapies. That’s our mission, and it’s intensely needed, especially now.

We ARE getting through this together, and as always we’re ready to assist you as we work to ensure the health of our beloved Quantum family, and the Tampa Bay community. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions related to our COVID-19 response and/or our re-opening process, and anticipate we’ll be reaching out to provide updates as they become relevant. In the meantime, please follow us on Facebook and our other social medial channels.

Please know, you and your family always have our warmest wishes for continuing good health and happiness – we look forward to seeing you again soon.

Happy trails, Edie
