1. Private Lessons are $35.00/hour, Group Lessons are $35.00 for 1½ hours. Lessons are weekly and will be billed in advance by the month according to the number of lessons per month. Example: A month with 4 Thursdays will be billed as $140.00, whereas a month with 5 Thursdays will be billed as $175.00. Payment is due in full before the 7th of the month to reserve your lesson spot.

2. For Students taking 2 or more lessons a week, lessons are billed at $30.00 each to be paid in advance by the month.

3. Please DO NOT self-adjust your invoices. For students that will be absent from the program for 2 or more consecutive weeks; lesson spots will not be held unless paid for in full in advance, though make-up lessons can be arranged upon return. Due to wait list for high demand spots, lesson spots will not be guaranteed unless paid for in full in advance.

Cancellation Policy:
1. Lessons MUST be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance to qualify for a make-up lesson. Lessons cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice or no calls/no shows will be charged full price for the missed lesson. Students that miss 2 lessons in a row without notice or excuse may lose their weekly spot should trainer have a waitlist for vacancies.
2. For students needing to cancel or reschedule their lesson, a make-up lesson will be given to be used within the same billing month as the missed lesson/class with the exception of lessons missed in the last week of the month in which make-up lessons must be used within the next billing month.

3. Lessons will be held rain or shine unless cancelled by trainer. In the event of arena being too muddy to ride in or extreme weather (wind, rain, etc.), an unmounted horsemanship, horse care or theory lesson will be taught in one of the covered areas instead. If trainer cancels lessons for any reason, including severe weather, students will be given a make-up lesson to be used within the same parameters outlined above.
