Sign up sheets are posted, please sign up by the Sunday before



All riders must arrive at least 15 minutes prior to lesson time.  Horse assignments are posted so riders are able to retrieve their tack and helmets upon arrival.  Horses are to be groomed before and after each lesson.  Riders are expected to return tack, blankets and help trainers to return horses to stalls or paddocks.  ALL riders are expected to sweep their wash stalls.


Please sign and date your releases, board/lease contracts and update your contact information sheets.  Your folders are in the lounge for your convenience.


Lesson payment is due at the time of the lesson.  Packages are discounted based on being prepaid.  If a package of 5 lessons is not paid prior to the first lesson, the cost is $160, instead of $135.  If you would like to receive a square invoice via email to pay online, please send an email to financial.nch@gmail.com.  Credit card forms can be kept on file also.


All lessons must be scheduled and canceled with Allie by text, phone message or email.  For immediate response or last minute changes, please text, 858-5472.  I don't always have access to my email during the work day.
