Lessons, Payments & Billing
Cadence Horsemanship offers programs focused on horsemanship and riding skills. We offer the following lesson options for students riding/handling a Cadence Horsemanship horse:
BEGINNER: A rider with little or no experience.
NOVICE: A rider who is comfortable and in control at a walk and/or trot but has limited experience at an extended trot and/or canter.
INTERMEDIATE: A rider who is confident and in control in all gaits, including a posting trot, canter and gallop, but does not ride regularly.
STRONG INTERMEDIATE: An intermediate rider who is currently riding regularly, can post a long trot, canter and gallop for an extended time period, and is comfortable riding several hours per day.
ADVANCED: All the above, plus the ability to handle a spirited horse in an uncontrolled environment.
Late Arrivals, Client Cancellations, and No-Shows
Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes prior to the start of your lesson. If you are going to be late, please call or text your instructor and let them know. If you are more than 15 minutes late, you will be considered a no-show and no credit or make-up will be issued.
Should the need arise for you to cancel your lesson, we ask for a minimum of 24 hours notice. There are no make-up lessons given for client-cancelled lessons. Cancellations with 24 hours notice are not billed, however, a strict 24 hours notice is followed as a courtesy to the instructor.
If you miss a lesson without 24 hours notice, you will be considered a no-show. You will be charged the full amount for the lesson period and will not be eligible for a make-up. More than three no-shows may be subject to dismissal from our program.
We try our best to avoid cancelling lessons. We may cancel lessons under the following circumstances for the safety of our riders and horses:
