Lesson & Therapy Program
Our lesson and therapy program services beginner to advanced riders, for both children and adults. Academy instructors help students reach their goals while assessing their strengths, weaknesses and guiding them along their individual horsemanship journey. Our ultimate goals is to provide a safe and welcoming environment to build our students' confidence and help them reach their goals.
Each lesson and therapy session includes riding, and grooming and tacking the horse at the beginning and end of the lesson. All lessons are taught by a private one on on instructor unless otherwise arranged.
For those interested in therapy, lessons plans are designed to specifically meet the needs and goals of the rider
**Boarding is available for students who have their own horses**

Academy Lesson Program Policies:
Lessons will average one hour or half an hour including grooming, tacking, and riding.
Standard rider weight limit must be under 220lbs
All lessons must be paid for in full by the 30th of the month, in order to hold your spot on the roster for the following month.
Riders will be booked two months at a time by CBC staff unless otherwise discussed. Invoicing will go out monthly for monthly payments. Any late invoices will be charged a $25 late payment fee. If payment is not received after 3 days of the invoice due date, your lessons will be canceled and you will be moved to the waitlist. Acceptable forms of payment are cash, check, or via online member’s portal. Any bounced check will result in a $25.00 fee.
Lessons will be scheduled based on academy availability and rider availability
In the event of severe weather where it will not be safe to ride in the indoor arena, a horsemanship lesson in the barn will be given in place of riding. However, in some cases of extreme weather, barn staff will contact rider/parent via text message no less than 2 hours prior to the lesson to cancel the lesson at no expense to the rider. A credit will be given to the following month or a makeup will be given if space is available. If clients wish to cancel on their end due to bad weather, it must be done within the 24 hour time frame.
To cancel a lesson, CBC’s coordinator must be contacted 24 hours in advance of the cancelled lesson, and a make up day will be scheduled, or a credit towards the following months bill will be given. Cancellations less than 24 hours will result in full charge for the lesson. Only one cancellation is permitted per month for a credit/reschedule. All other cancelled lessons missed will be forfeited.
If a rider is going to be more than 5 minutes late to a half hour lesson or more that 15 minutes late to a one hour lesson, barn staff must be notified or the lesson will be forfeited, and the full amount will be charged.
There will be NO REFUNDS on a no call, no show. Full amount will be charged. 2 consecutive no call no shows will results in a termination from the academy with no refunds. Voluntary unenrollment from the academy with less than 30 days notice will be a full charge for the month.
If you are paying by way of school voucher, lessons will be booked for you and all other policies apply.
Failure to meet any of the above requirements will result in termination of lessons. CBC Therapeutic Horseback Riding Academy LLC reserves the right to dismiss a student or amend the lesson requirements at any time.
