Next Semester Lesson Schedule

Fall 2017  Dates: Monday , Aug. 28 – Saturday, Dec. 24    (17 weeks)   

LESSONS ARE HELD AT OUR  FACILITY ON FOGGY BOTTOM ROAD IN BLUEMONT. rgf2

When taking group lessons at Red Gate, please keep the following in mind:

  • If you are leasing from us, lessons are included in your monthly rate
  • Group lesson prices are for 4 or more riders.
  • Classes with fewer than 4 students might be cancelled. In those cases, a makeup lesson can be taken or students can elect to upgrade to a semi-private lesson for an additional $10.
  • Group lesson time posted means that you need to be ready to ride at that time.  You should arrive earlier to tack your horse.
  • We ride rain or shine, and on most holidays. Assume your lesson will be held unless a cancellation is posted on our website.
  • Payment is for 15 lessons in a 15-17 week session.
  • A 24-hour cancellation notice is required to avoid a forfeit and to take a make-up lesson.
  • Last-minute/sick cancellations will forfeit the lesson but can schedule a practice ride with the barn manager.
  • Please note that we do not give make-up lessons for make-up lessons; they are considered a forfeit.
  • CHECK THE WEBSITE FOR CANCELLATIONS DUE TO WEATHER.  We do NOT follow the county school schedule.
  • You can purchase a block of 10 practice rides in addition to your lessons for $350 if you can catch/groom/tack/turnout your horse.

PAYMENT: Pre-paid block of 15 lessons for $750. Lessons are $55 each if not using block payment. Make checks payable to “Red Gate Farm”. Payment secures your spot. BEGINNER 1: We have found that new riders learn best in private lessons, semi-private lessons, or in our summer camp program. Private and semi-private lessons offer more individualized instruction and ensure your safety.
