Riding Lessons and Policies

Rider Policies

Clothing Requirements
Your Safety and Comfort are our #1 concern. For safety reasons, tennis shoes and hiking boots ARE NOT PERMITTED. All riders should wear LONG PANTS and BOOTS WITH A DRESS HEEL. (No Slant Healed Boots) Safety helmets are REQUIRED & MUST MEET ASTM / SEI safety standards. Bike helmets are NOT permitted. Due to health, proper fitting and safety reasons JWTM will NOT provide helmets.

On the Ranch
A reminder to family and friends, Moms and Dads. The tack-up areas, ie: tack room, pens, arena’s, etc. are for instructors and their students only. You are welcome and encouraged to stay and watch. Please find a seat in the waiting arena in the barn, or at the patio near the arena, have a seat and relax, and we will bring the lesson to you.

Student Drop Off / Pick Up
 *DRIVE SLOWLY (5MPH) Precious Children, and Livestock are on the grounds. 
 *Please park in the parking lot at the end of the drive way. 
 *No early drop offs/late pick-ups...Our instructors are teaching and cannot be expected to follow loose children. This presents an unnecessary hardship for everyone.

Payment - Cancellations
*Cash or Check  (No Credit Cards)
*Cancellations must be made 24 hours prior to the beginning of a scheduled class to avoid being charged.

Make-Up Lessons
Many students are concerned that missing a lesson, whether due to illness, vacation or rain, could set them back a little. If you wish to make up any lessons, please feel free to inquire about an open time for extra lessons. Please contact the office for a current schedule.
