LESSONS

We are still in the early stages of reopening and reorganizing our lesson program to accommodate current Covid-19 protocol and are not currently offering weekly lessons.  We are hopeful that we can resume lessons in September and encourage you to check back often for news and updates.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during these difficult times.

Payment:

Lesson payment is due in full on or before the first lesson of each session. All riders/parents must sign a release form before they will be permitted to ride.

 

Cancellations and Make Up Lesson Policy:

Lesson packages are non refundable.  If a lesson is cancelled by the instructor, a make up class will be arranged.  If you have missed a lesson due to personal reasons, there will be an opportunity to make up ONE missed lesson in the week following the end of the session.  It is your responsibility to schedule this with your instructor.  There are no refunds for lessons that you have missed and cannot make up within the session as stated above.

 

INTRO TO RIDING PROGRAM

 

 Our Intro to Riding Program is designed to teach children the basics of horseback riding in a safe and positive environment.  The program is divided into levels 1 and 2.  Each level consists of six 2-hour sessions in which the participants learn basic skills such as proper horse handling, grooming, tacking up/untacking, and riding.   There is one instructor per group, and for Level 1 riders, there is also a handler for each horse/pony.  There is a limit of 6 participants per session.

 

At the end of Level 1, participants should be able to groom and tack up their horse/pony mostly unassisted, as well as be able to ride at the walk independently.

 

At the end of level 2, participants should be able to groom and tack up their horse/pony completely unassisted, as well as be able to ride at the walk and trot independently.

 

Upon completion of each level, your instructor will advise you on the appropriate next step for your child should they wish to continue lessons.  Students are required to have successfully completed levels 1 and 2 before beginning weekly lessons.

 

All students must wear an ASTM approved helmet. While FES does have a few helmets available on site, we recommend riders purchase their own to ensure proper fit. A well fitted bicycle helmet is also acceptable in the short term.  Students must wear long pants and a boot with a 1” heel. Comfortable clothing appropriate for the weather is recommended.  Long hair should be neatly tied back or secured in a hairnet.  As you progress you may wish to invest in additional equipment such as riding pants, half chaps, gloves, etc.
