PRIVATE LESSON DISCOUNTS
Monthly on-site lesson package – $180 for four lessons in any one calendar month paid in advance (this includes pony/horse fee. No refund for cancelled lessons).
Refer a friend- if you refer a friend who signs up for a monthly package, your next lesson is free!
Foul weather policy – If the weather looks iffy or just plain horrid, come anyway! There is a LOT that can be learned during time spent in the barn (or house)- grooming and handling skills, veterinary and behavior knowledge, observational skills, etc. No refunds will be given for lessons cancelled due to weather.
Training Partners – parent/child, spouses, friends, neighbors, grandparents…if you would like to work as a pair for training, I will come up with something that works for you and price it accordingly.
