Important Info

Basic Information


  • All new clients must start with a private lesson and will join a group when sufficiently competent.
  • Payment is to be made before the start of your lesson so please arrive at least 10 minutes early. We accept cash, EFTPOS, online transfer by arrangement with the office or cheques.

Clothing Requirements


  • An approved safety helmet is compulsory when riding and is recommended when children are handling ponies.
  • Footwear must be suitable and safe, both for riding and when working around ponies. Jodhpur boots are ideal, or failing this, solid boots with a smooth sole and solid heel. Boots with gripped soles or shoes without heels are unsuitable.
  • Long pants must be worn and tops must be suitable and offer some protection. Singlets or shorts are not permitted.

Bad Weather


In the case of strong winds or rain, riding theory and stable practice lessons will continue inside. Bring a waterproof raincoat and wear warm clothing.

* Weight limit 100kg.

 

Cancellations


Please attempt to give us 24 hours notice if you are unable to attend your lesson. Leave a message, name and phone number on the Arion answer phone if you don't manage to speak to a staff member.

Any cancellations made less than 24 hours before your lesson will incur a $20.00 fee for private lessons and a $10.00 fee for group lessons. Cancellations outside the 24 hours will incur a $5.00 fee.

No Shows


This is when you don't notify us that you can't come. You will be charged the full lesson fee for a 'no show' which must be paid before your next lesson.
