Dress Code:
ASTM/SEI certified helmets and boots with heels are mandatory when mounted. Helmets are available for borrow upon request. Paddock boots and chaps, or boots and breeches are strongly suggested. Mud boots are necessary in the spring/wet season. Gloves are always a good idea when handling horses and riding.

General Information:
Please allow 30 minutes prior to your lesson to properly groom and tack your horse. You should be mounted and ready for your lesson at the start time. Small children and beginners require assistance from the trainer, so in those cases the grooming/tacking time is included in the lesson.

At the end of each lesson the rider is responsible for grooming his/her horse, cleaning the tack, returning equipment to its proper place and cleaning up any mess left by the horse in the cross-ties, stall or indoor arena.
