Does TRIPLE S EQUINES provide helmets and saddles? Can we bring our own?
Yes, we have helmets and the tack necessary to ride, but, we would like you to have your own helmet. What we have at the farm may not fit every rider correctly which may prevent injury. If you have your own saddle you can bring that as well.
Can two riders sign up for the same time and split the lesson?
No, the same rider is to show each week for their own time slot.
Are classes canceled due to poor weather and how do we find out about cancellations?
Classes are not canceled due to poor weather because TRIPLE S EQUINES holds lessons in there 60X110 indoor Arena, but if in doubt call 937-728-8945 for information.
Do riders receive a refund if they miss a class due to illness or a schedule conflict? Can they make up the lesson missed?
No refund is given to riders who miss a lesson, but there may be opportunities available when a rider could make up a lesson in their current session. The riding instructor would make this decision.
If the lessons are only one hour, how much of that hour will riders actually ride?
Riders will ride for one hour. I do not count tacking and untacking of the horse.
