We reserve the right to cancel events for the safety of riders, volunteers, horses and staff. If we cancel for unseen reasons like truck/trailer issues, extreme heat, etc. You will be refunded your invoice total minus the 3% processing fee.

LESSON CANCELLATION POLICY

Scheduling Lessons- Paying Monthly: In order to keep the day and time spot for your lesson each week, payment is REQUIRED in advance for the number of times the lesson falls in any given month. If you are unable to make one of those lessons, it is possible to reschedule for another day/time within that calendar month. If lesson is not used within the month, there will be NO REFUND.

Scheduling Lessons- Paying Per Lesson: If you choose to pay for each lesson as you take them, your lessons will run on a week-to-week basis, meaning you will not be guaranteed that particular day and time each week and you may not schedule lessons several weeks in advance.

Payment Policy: If you schedule monthly blocks of lessons, payment is due prior to the first scheduled lesson of the month. If you are not able to make that lesson for any reason, payment is still due and should be either paid through the invoice or paid at the ranch.

 

If you are paying per lesson, payment is due prior to the start of that lesson.

To cover the cost of credit card acceptance we pass on a 3% credit card surcharge except where it is prohibited by law. This surcharge is not more than the cost of accepting these cards and there is NO surcharge for debit cards.
