The Nuts & Bolts
Lesson Cost & Payment Policies
Participants in The Riding School enroll in one of our Programs, such as Level I and above. We do not provide single lesson purchases, with the exception of 'Leadline', & 'Spend the Day at Admiralty'.
Payment is due the first of each month for that month's lessons and other types of Riding School activities. We accept checks made payable to THE RIDING SCHOOL or electronic payments from your bank to ours using Zelle, and we accept cash.
If your payment does not go through and is NSF, we charge a $40.00 NSF & late fee.
Realizing that students may occasionally miss a lesson, we will provide a makeup with a 24 hour notice of cancellation. Dependent upon scheduling and horse availability, your make-up will either be a mounted or ground lesson. 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 by the end of the month, or at the latest, the first week of the next month. 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.
If necessary a make-up lesson will be taught as a 'back to back' immediately following your regular lesson that same day.
Other than 'Lead-line' and 'A Day Spent at Admiralty, our lessons are sold in monthly packages. As an additional thank you to those participants pre-purchasing three months of lessons, we are providing an additional 10% discount over our single month rates. Your tuition payment allows you access to an assigned lesson or lease horse, grooming tools, saddle, bridle and other riding tack, instruction, ability to join our Competition Horse Show team and posted horsemanship classes.
