Make-Up Lesson Policies
Absence from a lesson requires a 48 hour advance notice, or the make-up will be forfeited. Riders (or parents of riders) must give notice via email: email@example.com to request a make-up lesson. When at least 48 hour notice is given, the rider will be offered a make-up lesson in an open lesson spot, when available.
Make-ups lessons are to be taken within 30 days of the missed lesson and are available on a first-come, first-served basis, no refunds or credits. Only one make-up lesson is allowed per month. Make-ups are not available when the barn is closed for major holidays.
Visitors cannot handle horses until AFTER signing a release and getting permission from the owner AND Taylor Simon, Alex Meyers, Sarah Adams or Christy May.
Clean up after yourself. Do not leave manure in the crosstie areas. Do not spray manure down the drain in the wash rack- it will clog the drain. If there is manure in the wash rack, turn off the hose, scoop the poop with a shovel and put it in a muck bucket, then resume the bath.
Lesson program and boarder participants have access to the private tack room and Lone Star Stables property. In order to protect your valuables and the valuables of others, DO NOT DISCLOSE THE GATE CODE.

NO JUMPING WITHOUT A TRAINER PRESENT.
Do not write on any Lone Star painted surfaces.
Do not turn out horses in arena freely during inclement weather. A lung line should always be used in the arena to ensure the integrity of arena footing. If you need assistance in using a lunge line, please ask your trainer.
