For safety, we must follow these guidelines

  • Small children & siblings - must sit quietly near their parents or guardian. Crouching on the ground, running, squealing
    or throwing things can frighten horses and we want everyone to be safe.
  • No smoking on premises; hay burns quickly; barn fires are devastating.
  • Touching, petting and feeding horses: we know this is fun but it is dangerous because horses have powerful teeth. Please
    do only under your instructor's supervision and do not pet privately owned horses in the barns without permission
  • If you are behind a horse, please remain 10 feet back in case the horse decides to kick out his back legs. Please stay at
    least 4 feet from the side of the horse unless you are a student.
  • Dogs are not allowed in the barn or to be walked on the road where lessons take place. We love dogs but horeses may mistake
    them for predators and become frightened.
  • Things that can frighten a horse include but are not limited to: camera flashes, umbrellas, bicycles, ball throwing, loud
    noises, walkers and wheelchairs.
  • Please follow directions or requests given by the staff members.
