Missed Lessons & Make Up Lessons
Make-up lessons may be available to those students who give a MINIMUM of 48 hour cancellation notice via-email OR if canceled due to extreme temperatures. Less than the minimum required notice will result in the rider forfeiting their lesson. Lessons will be available on scheduled make up lesson days/slots and must be taken within 60 days of the canceled lesson.. Make up lessons may not necessarily be the same type of lesson (i.e. a missed private might be made up as a group, etc...). For some riders the option of doing a practice ride in lieu of a missed lesson is also available.
Special Opportunities & Social Events
We have a great mix of Jr Riders, Adults and Teens. Some ride for recreation others are competitive. We welcome all levels and ages of abilities. We have a great social network and offer many fun educational sessions and social gatherings geared towards each of these groups. We plan each month with something to appeal to each of these groups. For the younger Jr riders we have the Barrhaven Pony Club. For Teen's and Adults we run special sessions such as yoga on horseback, musical ride, clinics and theory sessions, and fun get togethers or outings.
Every month we have special educational sessions, social outings, riding practices, and or host/attend riding clinics, we travel to competitions, and we even have our own in house fun shows! Many of these opportunities are available to all of our riders.
