People take lessons for three months before deciding whether they are serious about the sport. If they do wish to progress further, they then lease a horse or pony for either six or twelve months. People wishing to continue then purchase their own to further their abilities with and compete at local shows.Helmet, boots with a heel, and long pants are required. We have helmets and boots for beginners. We also recommend wearing gloves. Please arrive 15 to 30 minutes before the lesson to help tack up and groom the horse or pony.
During the winter months, we waive our $35 haul-in fee for people who want to trailer here for lessons with any of our trainers.
Everyone riding on the property needs to completely fill out our waiver and present it to Anne or Craig Clermont prior to riding. Copies are available just outside the office hanging up or you may request us to it to you. Thank you.
