            Due to the progressive nature of our program(s) it's strongly recommended you schedule a lesson each week. In an attempt to keep lessons at an economic value it is the policy at Son Rise to provide lessons by the month with payment due for the entire month. Each lesson has a $32.50 value no matter the structure (i.e. 3 hr buddy class, 2hr advance class, 1 1/2 hour private.....). Payments received the first lesson of the month receive a $10.00 discount (= $120.00 a month, but return to the normal $130.00 amount after the first weekend of the month). Adult lessons are a membership fee of $100.00 a month whether you make the lessons or not- no make-ups. A fee of $25.00 applies for unaranged late payments received after the 7th (does not apply if I receive a note stating when payment can be expected so I 'm allow to budget accordingly). If you end up having an unscheduled absence missing a lesson you've paid for AND I receive a courtesy call  you'll receive credit for a make-up lesson (can NOT be used  toward your normally scheduled lessons). Make-up lessons can be used toward an extra lesson, special events, ranch attire or summer camps at the value of $22.50 each.  If a student has three unpaid lessons in a row he/she will forfeit their regularly scheduled lesson spot and may be placed on a waiting list.

Students may be dropped off & picked up 1/2 hr before or after lessons without prior arrangements, anything outside this time allowance should be pre-arranged. 

ALL Riders MUST have a current wavier / medical release BEFORE they ride. Failure to follow this policy may result in your dismissal. Helmets are to be worn any time you are on the same side of the fence as a horse (18yrs & over must wear helmets when riding, but may use their discretion on ground).
NO ONE works with horses without someone else present on property. An adult must be present unless you are certified level "A" or higher. The two pair of eyes rule applies for controlled enviorments (like arenas) and the buddy system of three (one stays, one goes for help) applies for non-controlled enviorments
(like trail riding). Long pants & footwear with one inch heel, without heavy tread , reaching above your ankles required for riding (boots & helmets supplied at the ranch). No gum chewing while riding. Only use rope halters for training, please don't use them to tie your horse.


First & last month's lease fee required at time of lease agreement. Must make at least two lessons a month
