School Policies

Lesson Program
Leg Up Equestrian offers horseback riding lessons throughout the year. Our school calendar follows a traditional 13 week college 'Quarter' class schedule: Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer class QTRs.

Leg Up's school year begins with the Fall QTR each year and runs through the last day of Summer QTR the following year. Each Leg Up class Quarter consists of 10 scheduled lessons with a built-in FREE make-up week for missed lessons. Our Leg Up Semester enrollment = 2 Leg Up QTRs (20 scheduled lessons). Make-ups need to be completed in the same class QTR missed.

Class Policies and Make-ups

Students who miss their class can make it up during our scheduled 'make-up week' (same class day/time), at no additional charge. ~ class cancellations require min. 24 hrs. notice to be eligible for a free make-up. Makeups are limited to 1 class per Quarter.

rainy day policy: Come to class!
Always assume we will have scheduled classes - we rarely cancel, and we will always notify you in the rare event we do due to unsafe conditions. Dress for the weather; rain is often intermittent.

In the event that we are unable to ride, we will provide a structured Barn Class: unmounted lessons covering the required skills and knowledge in our Leg Up Levels of Achievement curriculum.. These skills are required to pass each subsequent level and students are tested for this knowledge in order to progress in our program. Barn Classes are integral part of our lesson program, and a valuable opportunity for teaching and learning. - please do not miss class because of inclement weather!

dress code: Students are expected to come to class dressed to ride. Long pants or breeches and sturdy shoes are required. Leg Up provides school shirts for all new students (included with your registration fee). Students are expected to wear their school shirts at all Leg Up classes and events. Additional school shirts may be purchased for $15 ea. (please ask your instructor).
