What to expect...

Plan to arrive 30 minutes prior to your lesson.

Plan to be at the barn 2 hours. We teach our clients more than just how to ride a horse. We work from the ground up which teaches basic horsemanship, proper handling, grooming, tacking, warm up, cool down & untacking.

Don't worry if you have a little one or don't know what you are doing! One of our staff or interns will walk with you or your child every step of the way!

A Waiver of Liability MUST be signed prior to riding any horses. 

Out of respect for our other clients we will keep everything on time. If you are late for your lesson your lesson will end at the scheduled time.

**We have a strict 24 hour cancelation policy. If you cancel within 24 hours of a scheduled lesson time you are expected to pay for the lesson**

All lessons must be paid for at the time of service. We accept Cash or Venmo only! If I have to send you a Venmo request a $5 LATE FEE charge will be added to the request.

All children under 18 must wear a helmet when mounted on a horse. 

Any age must wear a helmet and protective vest when jumping.

For the safety of our horses and the riders the weight limit is 225 lbs.
