Drop-in riding lessons are designed for children who are at least 7 years old and can ride a horse without assistance. Lessons are taught at the rider's skill level and are designed for persons who would like to ride but cannot commit to a weekly lesson or as an extra lesson for our riders who are looking for a second lesson.
Lessons include grooming the horse as well as riding.
A signed Rider Release form is required for the lesson.
More information on riding lessons can be found at http://www.prettyponypastures.org/English.html.
Is there an age limit or physical limit to ride?
Riders must be at least 7 years old and weigh less than 175 pounds..
What should the rider and parent wear?
Riders need to wear long pants. Both the rider and parent need to wear either tennis shoes or boots with a small heel. Riding helmets are provided by Pretty Pony Pastures, however riders may bring their own equestrian helmet. Bike, roller blade, and other sport helmets are not permitted.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Inquiries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 248 634-7276.
What is the refund policy?
Refunds can be requested up to 48 hours before class time.
What if the weather is bad?
Drop in riding lessons will be cancelled if the temperature/wind chill is below 20 degrees, if a weather advisory has been issued, or if more than 3" of snow has fallen in the previous 24 hours. i.e. 3 1/2 inches of snow fell Tuesday morning and the lesson is Tuesday evening. We will make every attempt to email the cancellation notice as soon as we know we will be closed. Please call if you are concerned..
Can I pay at the door?
We request registration and payment prior to the lesson. Persons who show up at ride time without registering may not be able to ride as we only permit four horses in a class.
