- BEGINNER/NOVICE SESSIONS should bring a swimsuit and towel Wednesday and Thursday for water games


ALL STUDENTS SHOULD WEAR:

- Long pants or breeches

- Boots or shoes with at least a half-inch heel (cowboy boots work great for the beginner/novice sessions, unless they already have paddock boots) *kids may NOT ride in sneakers*

- Shorts and light clothing may be worn after horse activities conclude (recommended); closed-toe shoes are preferred

- NOVICE/ADVANCED SESSIONS should wear paddock boots and half chaps, if they are not already wearing tall boots


BEGINNER/NOVICE SESSIONS:

For the past 2 summers, due to COVID-19, we have NOT allowed parents to attend pony games. If we do that plan again (depending on how COVID numbers are looking by summertime), I will teach each rider a pattern and have him/her perform said pattern for a video, which I will send to the parent after the week is over.

*If we are in a more "normal" place by then, we will do pony games to close out the week, like we used to do


QUADRILLE SESSION:

On the Thursday of the Quadrille Session, the students will perform the quadrille that they will have practiced all week. Since this Session is smaller, parents are encouraged to attend the quadrille performance! Alaina will let everyone know what time to be there for the performance.

BEGINNER/NOVICE WEEKS: Each day begins at 9:00am. Please be 15 minutes early *on the first day* so we can take care of registration. You may pick your student up between 2:00-2:30pm at the end of each day. There will be a $25 fee per day for students picked up after 3:00pm.
