Lesson Attire and Requirements:

  • Jump vest required for all jump lessons
  • Riders must wear boots with a hard 1/2-inch heel (no sneakers, sandals, or flat-bottom shoes allowed)
  • Riders must wear long pants. Please do not wear tank tops. Chaps or half chaps are optional.
  • All riders must wear a helmet. It is best to bring your own to ensure proper fit, but if you don’t have one, we have plenty to share.
  • Due to age and size of our lesson ponies, we are unable to accommodate beginner riders over 180 lbs.

Scheduling and Cancellation Policies:

  • Lessons are 45 minutes from start to finish. Riding time is approximately 30 minutes.
  • Instruction is also provided on how to groom and properly tack up your horse. We will teach you both how to ride and to have excellent horsemanship skills.
  • Arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled lesson time to provide adequate preparation time before meeting with your instructor. Being late will cut into your lesson time.
  • If you arrive more than 15 minutes late, your lesson will be cancelled, and you will be charged full price.
  • You must give 24 hours’ notice of any cancellations, or you will be charged the full price of a lesson.
  • The instructor reserves the right to limit lesson time due to lack of concentration, low stamina, or weather conditions.

  • No running in or around the barn, arena, or pastures.
  • Family members are always welcome to attend the lesson, but please do not disturb students during their lesson.
  • We will not be responsible for supervising siblings/friends of students. Please keep a close eye on young children while at our facility.
