Lesson Program Policies
We thank you in advance for helping us to keep our program well organized and efficient. We hope you will join us at Touchstone Farm where you will learn to ride safely in an atmosphere of fun and encouragement.
All riders must wear an ASTM approved riding helmet for every ride. We have some helmets available for our beginning riders. Once a rider is committed, we strongly encourage purchasing one’s own helmet to insure individual correct fit.
Riders should dress in loosely fitting pants and a shoe or boot with a heel for beginner lessons. As our students progress through the ranks, we encourage correct attire for riding.
You'll receive Emergency and Insurance Release Forms for each student before the start of lessons. These forms must be signed and returned to the instructor before a student is allowed to ride.
Students must contact the Touchstone Office, 603-654- 6308, at least 24 hours in advance if they are going to miss a lesson. If a student does not show up without calling, the lesson will not be made up. If the call is received within 24 hours, we will gladly make up the lesson during a mutually agreed upon time.
