Lesson/Training Ride Details
Lessons must be paid monthly for a 4 week period by the 1st of each month. In months with 5 weeks, there will be no additional charge for the 5th lesson. This will accommodate for the rare times when a student has to miss their scheduled time. In cases of inclement weather where riding is not possible (thunderstorms), riders will have unmounted horsemanship lessons inside. These will cover important topics to the rider’s continued success and development that we do not typically have time or opportunity to cover in our normal lesson structure.
Lessons missed or canceled for any reason must be made up within the current month. Lessons canceled with less than 24 hour notice may not be made up.
Students who choose not to pay their lessons monthly will accrue a $5 per lesson “pay as you go” fee. These lessons should be paid for on the date of service.
Riders who pay monthly will have their designated riding times reserved for them and will receive first choice of available lesson times, shows, and special events.
Students should plan to arrive one half hour before their lessons to properly groom and prepare their horse and be in the ring at their scheduled lesson time. This will ensure they receive their entire instructional time. They should plan to stay 30 minutes after their lesson to thoroughly untack and groom their mount and care for and put away all tack. Beginner lesson students need not arrive early and should come at their scheduled time.
*No rider may jump any obstacle outside of a supervised lesson. Single poles on the ground is the only exception. This is for the safety of all riders and their mounts, as well as their continued positive growth and development. No exceptions.
