Q:

I have a beautiful sidesaddle that I have ridden on several years ago. Can you give me lessons with that? I am rusty for sure and might need help with a girth. A calm horse that won't freak out would be best. I only need to walk and do sitiing and posting trots--no cantering for now. Maybe we could work something out. Of course I would take two lessons and maybe more in the future.

Yes, I have a horse that I believe will handle side-saddle just fine! Would be fun. . .I haven't ridden side-saddle in probably 30 yrs!!!

Q:

How long is a private lesson? I have 3 children (ages 15, 13 and 8) who would like to learn how to ride. Can I buy multiple groupons? I'm not sure how many I should or how many I can. Also what clothing and equipment would we be required to provide? Thank you.

Lucy P.  asked on  Jan 17, 2013

A:

You will need to buy 1 groupon for each child. We will combine their lessons, however so each gets riding time as well as all of them working together on the grooming, saddling, etc. Lessons are approx. 1 hour in length. We would set up 2 hour blocks of time and your children would share each 2 hour block of time. EX: you would have 3 groupons for 2 lessons, which would give you a total of 3-2 hour blocks of time. . .therefore, your children would have 3 lessons, all sharing each 2 hour block of time. Hope that makes sense!

Q:

We are very interested in purchasing this for our daughter's birthday present but my question is on the expiration date...do we have to use all the lessons by the July 17th date or just have to use our first one by then and then we can use the other one or three at a later date if needed? Thanks in advance!

A:

you do NOT have to use all the lessons before the expiration date! Whatever works for you, works for us!

Q:

I looked at your website and it appears that most of your clients have their own horse. If I get this groupon for my daughter can we just show up in boots and a helmet? Also, do you do back to back trainings so if I bring two kids (or her friends) we can make one trip? Thanks!

Lisa M.  asked on  Jan 17, 2013

A:

You do not have to have your own horse for these lessons. You do have to make prior reservations, you cannot just show up! I am booked at least 2-3 weeks in advance, so making your appt early is essential to getting day/time that works for you. If you have 2 kids, I will do a 2 hour block where both kids have lessons. Both children will need a groupon, which means you will have a total of 2, 2 hour blocks of time to satisfy both groupons. I hope that makes sense!

Q:

Is there a weight limit to ride the horses? I weigh 220 and my wife is 206.

Rey G.  asked on  Jan 17, 2013

A:

My horses will be able to accommodate you, but thanks for asking first! I'm not exactly tiny anymore! LOL!!

Q:

What are your hours of operation? I looked on the website but could not find this information. In particular, I want to know if you teach on weekends. Thanks!

Earl H.  asked on  Jan 17, 2013

A:

Yes, we do have appointments on Saturday's and Sunday's for these Groupon Deals. You do have to call and make a reservation, however. We are usually booked 2-3 weeks out, so the sooner you call, the sooner we will be able to accommodate you! Thanks!
