Indoor and outdoor groups
We open up to more volunteers to get the daily, necessary work going around. Such is the situation at EKT now, we are totally dependent on volunteer labor and support to cope. All riding school students on regular courses should have received e-mail with information and explanation about the situation. Contact if you haven't received an email.
Through an organized program for groups of voluntary workers, we are able to follow the infection prevention measures. We have divided the work areas into indoor and outdoor work. Volunteers are set up in regular groups at regular times. In this way, we can optimize the performance and services of those who want to get in touch with and contribute to the operation of EKT through the Corona crisis. Everyone is informed about general infection control rules, as well as EKT's detailed rules on site.
