Planning and Perspective with Phillip Dutton – The Chronicle of the Horse

It was an incredible week throughout the world, like none most of us have ever experienced. The horse community and its leaders have embraced the seriousness of this pandemic, which will hopefully aid and help slow down the spread of COVID-19. It seems that a vaccine is at least 12 months away, so the immediate goal is to slow down the spread of the coronavirus, which will help to not overburden the hospitals and caregivers throughout the country. Unfortunately, it looks like this pandemic will be with us for a while, so it seems like we need to plan our lives around this new norm. Most of us have family or loved ones that are at a higher risk for this virus, which could have disastrous consequences, so while most of those who are infected recover quickly, the main concern is for those who have suppressed immune systems.
