Lost Miner Ranch and Equestrian Center Riding Lesson Program
Lost Miner Ranch and Equestrian Center offers a quality beginner and intermediate riding lesson program for ages 5 through adult. Students may select from Western or English riding styles.
Lessons during the COVID-19 outbreak look a little different this year. Please see below for general lesson information and information specific to COVID-19.
Helmets are mandatory for all riders under 18 or for jumping and are provided. Helmets are strongly recommended for all riders.
Riders should wear long pants (not baggy), closed toed shoes or boots with a smooth sole and heel, weather appropriate clothing, and sunscreen and/or bugspray.
All lessons must be paid for in advance or at the time of the lesson.
Students must arrive at least 5 minutes prior to the start of each lesson.
Lesson Policies regarding COVID-19
Immediately upon arrival, all students must wash their hands prior to attending their lesson. Handwashing facilities are provided in the lobby of the indoor arena.
Lessons are 45 minutes long instead of the usual hour. Instructors will be tacking/untacking the horses/ponies to eliminate additional traffic in the barn.
Unmounted lessons may be scheduled separately so we can be sure to have proper precautions in place to safely teach in a closer proximity. Unmounted lessons will teach non-riding horsemanship skills, such as grooming and tacking.
Students should meet their instructor at the east gate of the indoor arena for all lessons.
No groups or additional friends or family allowed at this time, only the student and a parent/guardian, if needed.
If you or a member of your household are experiencing ANY symptoms of sickness you will not be allowed to ride. Please keep our instructors safe!
Lost Miner Ranch operates on a strict cancellation policy. Please respect staff and instructors by attending all lessons you have scheduled. A lot of time and effort goes on behind the scenes to prepare for each lesson.
Students may reschedule a lesson with at least 48 hours notice.
Lessons cancelled with less than 24 hours notice or lessons not attended will be forfeit due to scheduling of staff and horses - these lessons will be charged in full.
Late arrivals will be allowed to continue with their lesson but lesson time may not continue past original end time due to scheduling; lessons will not be discounted in price due to late arrival.
Any lesson cancelled by Lost Miner Ranch and Equestrian Center will be rescheduled. If Lost Miner Ranch is not able to reschedule the lesson a full refund will be given.
