Our lesson program runs September - June (July & August classes are scheduled separately). Once you are scheduled for a lesson time, your time slot is reserved for you throughout the year, unless you notify the office in writing/via email that you need to make a change to your lesson time. If we need to change your lesson time, we will notify you prior to the start of the following session. Please provide at least one month's notice if you plan to discontinue your lesson or need to change your lesson time.
Please note, riding is a year-round sport for both progression and safety. We cannot hold lesson times for students that stop lessons in the fall and wish to start up again in the spring. Priority for lessons times will go to those planning to ride year-round.
Group Lesson Minimum Requirements:
To begin classes at Raynham Stables, riders must be a minimum of 7 years old and 20kg (45lb) and no more than 82kg (180lb). Riders wishing to riding in a group lesson must be able to safely and competently perform the following tasks:
• groom, saddle and bridle a horse under minimal supervision • walk, trot, canter and maintain a two-point position in the trot
Students who are unable to meet these criteria will have enrol in private/semi-private lessons until their instructor approves them for group lessons. We also offer an Early Rider Program for children ages 5 - 6 years old who are eager to begin classes.
New Rider Form - All students must complete an up to date Contact Form & Waiver. Please print off and bring to your first class.
