So long as you give us a 24 hour advance notice of a lesson cancellation, we'll schedule a makeup lesson. Dependent upon scheduling and horse availability, your make-up will either be a riding lesson or a horse care sesion. If you are ill or injured, we will accept less than a 24 hour notice. Cancellations received after your lesson time do no qualify for a make-up. All make-ups must be completed within 30 days of the cancelled lesson. It is your responsibility to schedule and attend your make-up. If you miss your make-up, you forfeit the lesson. If your schedule does not allow for a make-up, you forfeit that lesson.
If a lesson must be cancelled due to your instructor's absence, weather or some other extenuating circumstance, the instructor will schedule your make-up within a 30 day period.
