Masks: they’re the must-have accessory for the foreseeable future, that’s for sure. So here’s to having a little fun with it, like Bethany Humphries and Rich Maximus K are doing during their first trot-up at the Thoresberton International Horse Trials in the UK.

I recently read a super review of current literature available on the efficacy of cloth masks published online by the journal Nature. It’s a long but informative and easy read and you can find it here if you’re interested. The long and short of it is essentially that there is sparse research currently available, but there are some larger studies which should be fairly informative commencing soon. The limited research on cloth masks that was previously done prior to the pandemic or hastily performed during the spring still to points towards double-layer cloth masks providing protection for both the wearer and others. Keep that in mind when you’re out eventing with your mask and remember: it’s not just a good thing to do, it’s also the rule!
