Policies and Procedures for Ride the Sky Stables Riding School

Scheduling
 

  • Lessons are scheduled in advance at the beginning of each semester (3 month period).

  • Enrolled students will sign up for a lesson time(s) for the entire semester. This time can be switched at the beginning of each semester. 

  • Students are allowed 1 make up per semester. For twice weekly students 3 make ups. Make ups must be scheduled within the same semester.

  • Lesson payments are non-refundable. 

  • Students who are able can show up 20 minutes before the scheduled lesson to tack up your horse and be in the ring ready to ride at the scheduled lesson time. 

  • If you arrive more than 15 minutes late you the lesson will be forfeit. 

  • We do strive to meet communicated class schedules; however, in the event of business /safety requirements, we reserve the right to make class changes as necessary.

 

 

Lesson Attire
 

  • Riders should wear long, tight fitting pants and a comfortable shirt. Please come prepared wearing layers and gloves in cold weather, or with water bottles in hot and humid weather. 

  • For safety riding and in and around the barn a boot with at least a 1/2" heel is required. 

  • No flip flops or sandals in the barn! 

  • Helmets are required while riding and can be provided by Ride the Sky. 

Weather Policy
 

  • If lessons are to be cancelled due to weather, the student/client will be contacted the day of the lesson via preferred contact method, and posted updates can be found on our social media pages. A make-up lesson will be scheduled in the next 4 weeks.

  • Lessons are given in rain, if conditions are unsuitable for riding we can continue the lesson as a horsemanship lesson in the barn. Horsemanship lessons are extremely important to continue safe practices in and around the barn.
