Dear Masterson Method Student,
I’m so glad you’re able to attend our Masterson Method Weekend Seminar Workshop, especially given the current situation we’re experiencing with the Covid-19 virus. We look forward to providing you as safe and educational an experience as possible. I know you won’t be disappointed.
At Masterson Method courses we normally ask students to sign a standard equine activities liability waiver. Given the current situation we will also be asking you to sign a Covid waiver acknowledging that you understand the risks involved with working around others in the current Covid-19 environment. Your Instructor will have copies of the attached waiver for you to sign at your course, but I wanted to give you a chance to look at it in advance.
This is new territory for all of us. It’s not in my optimistic nature to make a big deal of things but we want everyone to be aware of the risks of Covid and to know that we take concerns about this seriously.
Now let’s get on to the important part. Enjoy your course!
Very Best Regards,
COVID WAIVER AND RELEASE
