My new cancellation policy is simple. If you cancel your lesson with in the 24 window before your lesson, you will still owe me for the lesson. You can pay me via Venmo, PayPal, Zelle or Cash App.
While I do understand that things “come up” last minute, I also have a dramatic increase in 30 minutes before the lesson cancellations. This negativity impacts my business. I have carved out an hour and a half of my time for you to teach yourself or your child thus not allowing anyone else to book a lesson during that time. Please respect my time!
On the flip side, I too will make my best effort to guess the weather conditions and alert you to the possibility of a rescheduled lesson 24 hours in advance.
I do have some exceptions to this rule. But you must contact me ASAP if you plan to reschedule your lesson. Exceptions will be handled case by case. Forgetting that you have prior engagements does not qualify. Sleeping past your alarm does not qualify. Please contact me if your rider has been feeling ill or running fever ASAP. Do not wait until an hour before your scheduled time.
I appreciate all of my students! I appreciate your understanding in this matter! A lot of other training facilities require payment plans by the month and if you miss your scheduled appointment, you miss it. I really don’t want to move to that plan. However, now that school has started as well as baseball so I have limited time spots to squeeze all of my riders into my schedule!
You know, I used to barrel race pretty often on my horse Zbar Lynx To Cash. He has always been a powerhouse!!! I always enjoyed letting him fly in and turn three! It was a rush!!!! But, due to life, we have taken almost two years off. Now I don’t know how to do it!
We went to a race on Saturday. I was on the fence about running. I seriously considered putting a bit in his mouth (he runs in a light hack) just so I could slow him down. Well, he managed to injure himself so we didn’t get to make our run. However, I did get to ride in the arena after the race. Holy smokes. He was a freight train!!!!! We were just loping circles. I was having to keep him in the bridle! I had put my low port Myler bit on him so he would know we were not running barrels. I’m not sure how I ran him before, but wow… this horse is BROKE. He is responsive. He has been to so many arenas and won so much!!! He has mostly placed either in the 1D or 2D. He is now 15 and I am the only one that has ever run him on barrels! Now I remember why!!!! I think he would leave anyone else in the dirt!!!! Now I need to remember how to run him!!!!! My brain and body need to find that balance and control we once had while being astride this incredible athlete! Y’all, I’m not sure I know how to run Lynx anymore!!! Maybe I need to borrow a slow one to get my muscles back lol!
Normally, during the summer, we switch to 7-8am lessons and 7-8 pm lessons. However, this July is excessively HOT. We are supposed to get a cool down after the 14th of July.
I have edited my work schedule to reflect this excessive heat. I don’t want to pause lessons. After watching my morning lesson student get sick after her 8am lesson and seeing that it is 105° at 7pm, I cannot put my students or horses at risk in this extreme heat!
Please pray for rain! Thank you for understanding. Remember, I’m keeping my riders and horses safe.
