What else will students need: Students will need to have long pants for riding in (non-slippery material such as jeans, tights, ect.) as well as a boot or shoe with a 1/2 inch heel (for safety reasons, so rider's feet do not slip through the stirrup). It is recommend that student purchase a properly fitted equestrian riding helmet, however, we do have helmets available for students to borrow for the classes.
Please note deposits are non-refundable but we can transfer them to another lesson program or birthday party.

The first lesson is going to be mostly theory, filling out paper work and learning how to catch and lead, groom and tack up horses. We will also practice mounting and dismounting, but will not do a lot of riding. So, if you have questions about what to wear, helmets, ect. you can also ask your coach at the first lesson as you won't miss out on anything :)
As you get better at catching, leading and grooming and tacking up your horse, the riding time each lesson will get longer :)
If you are going to be away for a week or weekend and need to miss a class, we can do make-up lessons for missed classes in one of the other time-slots offered, as long as we get 24hrs notice for missing the event
