FAQS

Answers to All Your Questions

FAQ: FAQ

WHAT AGES DO YOU WORK WITH?

We've started with kids as young as 4 and I've taught riders well into their 70's.

WHAT IS REQUIRED FOR THE FIRST LESSON?

The rider should be dressed in comfortable long pants that they can move around in.  A boot with a heel is your safest bet but sneakers will work for the first few lessons until you determine if you want to invest in a pair of boots.  I provide helmets.

WHAT STYLES OF RIDING DO YOU TEACH?

We teach everything!  English, Western and even Driving (Carts & Harness).

WHAT DOES THE COSTS OF THE LESSON COVER?

Lesson fee's don't just go to the Coach.  The cost of care and maintenance on a lesson horse can run a few hundred dollars monthly (several hundred if one is coaching from a boarding facility).  There's the cost of feed, supplements, Farrier care, routine Veterinary Care (especially for the Senior horses), Vaccinations and labor.


There is also the cost and maintenance of the equipment being used.  The riding arenas need to be maintained with equipment that also needs maintenance.  The list is seemingly never ending.  When you factor in Insurance, and property cost as well it really adds up.

WHAT ARE THE CANCELLATION AND MAKE-UP POLICIES?  WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY FOR A LESSON I MISSED?

The costs of running a lesson program are fixed monthly expenses, that have to be paid even if people miss lessons.  While the occasional skipped lesson occurs and make ups are generally allowed for those at the rate of one per month, multiple missed lessons can wreck havoc on a coaches income.  A dropped lesson can not be filled last minute.
