Each new client will undertake a 30 minute assessment lesson to establish their individual riding level before being assigned a suitable instructor. If you have chosen group lessons this will also help us to place you into an appropriate group for both your age and ability.
Unfortunately allowing a rider to join in later than this will cause disruption and does not allow adequate time for the warm up of both horse and rider. You will not be able to join in your lesson, but will be charged the full amount.
All lessons must be paid for in advance. There are no refunds on lesson packages.
5 lesson packages are valid for 6 weeks only.
10 lesson packages are valid for 12 weeks only.
If at the end of your package you do not renew immediately, your allocated slot will be given to another rider.
A group lesson will be for one hour if there are three or more people in the group. If there are only two people it will run for 45 minutes and only one person it will be for 30 minutes. A semi-private lesson will be 45 minutes even if there is only one person attending.
Once you have been given a regular lesson slot this will be yours unless there is notice given from either yourself or the riding school.
If a rider is cancelling on a regular basis then the riding school reserves the right to re-allocate your slot and find an alternative that better suits yourself.
Desert Palm offers a 10% discount for each lesson type if three or more members of the same family are taking lessons.
