Lessons & Fees

 

Creating Your Riding Program

Once you and your coach have decided what would be the best program for you, Myrddin offers you the flexibility to choose from a variety of arrangements.

Lessons are offered on PRIVATE (single person), SEMI-PRIVATE (2-3 people), and GROUP (4-6 people) rates. School Horses are available for all classes.

For those riders who like the regular routine of the same class time each week, we offer Monthly Rates. To receive monthly lesson rates, the following conditions apply:

 

  • Riders must sign up for the full semesters
    • they must pay either the full amount at the 1st of each month or submit 4 post-dated cheques for each month at the beginning of the semester
    • they must tall all their lessons before the end of each semester. Lessons are not transferable to the next semester.

New students are welcome to start at any time during the semester.

Riders who wish to take a variety of classes, or have fluctuating schedules, can arrange for lessons as needed. Riders may take additional classes at any time. It is recommended that you give us 48 hours to book your lessons to better accommodate you.
Theses are for riders who would like to practice on their own or just ride out for enjoyment and exercise. Riders must be at or equivalent to a Rider Level 4 to rider on their own. Riders under 12 years of age must be supervised by a parent or guardian. There is NO jumping allowed on practice rides.
Check out the Rate Sheet for Part Board Packages if you would like to combine lessons and practice rides. The terms and conditions are listed in the Part Board Contract.

Students may compete at local shows and horse trials with our school horses. To qualify to compete, riders are required to ride a minimum of twice per week. Check out the Calendar of Events for competition dates.

Myrddin hosts clinics, workshops and off property schooling throughout the year. Riders are encouraged to participate in these events. Ask your coach which activities would be suitable for you. Check out the Calendar of Events section.

Myrddin has lectures and and stable management practicals in our winter semester. Our coaches, Theresa Rondeau Vuk and Margaret Godson, can examine you up to Rider Level 4. Beyond that, we can arrange for examination days. Traditionally these are held in March & April. Candidates for testing can arrange with their coaches for individual mentoring.
