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 Group Rates.

Option #1:
For riders that wish to rider on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, lessons may be purchased in packages or 4 or 8 lessons.
(Note: there is an expiry date of 120 days from time of purchase on these packages)

 

Option #2:

For riders that would like to ride on an as-needed basis, the Individual Class Rate applies.

Riders are encouraged to make up missed lessons so they stay current with the group, but it is not mandatory. If you know ahead of time, we can usually accommodate you in another class . There is a required 24 hour cancellation. If you cancel less than 24 hours from your scheduled lesson time , then you forfeit that class in your package.

New students can start taking classes at any time .

 

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.

A private lesson is a single horse/rider combination. 1/2 hour private lessons are for riders returning to riding or just starting out and want a great start. They are also for intensive training, practicing dressage tests, or a jump school.

 

Semi-Private lessons are for two horse/rider combinations.

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.
