PROSPECTIVE CLIENT REGISTRATION FORM
Please use the link above to fill out a prospective client registration form. You will be notified by email that your form has been received and you have been added to the waiting list. We typically begin reaching out to prospective clients about 4 weeks prior to the beginning of the next session.
The first class of the day starts at 10:00 AM and our last class starts at 5:30 PM and our lessons are typically 60 minutes long. We offer private (one client-$60 per lesson), semi-private (two clients-$55 per lesson), or group (three clients-$50 per lesson). Every client automatically receives a $115 scholarship per lesson. Each client is matched individually with an equine partner by our PATH Intl. instructors. We typically like first time clients, especially those who are new to riding, to start with a private lesson.
Each therapeutic riding lesson is eight weeks long and are held four times a year-Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. There is a 5 week mini session in November and December. We typcially have a 2 week break between sessions to allow for make up lessons (these are offered if PHR cancels a lesson) and to allow our equine herd time off from work and us to do needed work around the ranch.
Please note, due to PATH Intl. guidelines, riders must be over the age of two years old. All riders must have paperwork completed by their physician clearing them for therapeutic riding prior to starting lessons.
For comfort and safety riders should wear sturdy shoes with a low heel, if possible and long pants made from non-slippery fabric. A riding helmet must be worn at all times. We have riding helmets or you may supply your own.
