School Rules – For the attention of ALL spectators and users of the school. Absolutely no unauthorised persons to enter the school for any reason without the express permission of the instructor in the school. This includes parents of children participating in lessons. Please do not stand at the school fence or gate to watch lessons. Doing so may distract both riders and horses and may cause an accident. Please refrain from giving either advice or encouragement to riders in the school. Either can distract or startle horses and riders. Absolutely no smoking in or around the school at any time. Please do not bring dogs down to the school. Please do not allow children to run, shout or play near the school or on any equipment. Lessons/all riders If having a lesson do not get on until an instructor is in the school. Pass other horses and riders left shoulder to left shoulder (i.e. riders on the right rein move off the track). Mount and dismount in the center out of the way of other riders. Keep a horses length between you and the horse in front. If passing leave enough room that one horse isn't able to bite or kick at the horse on the other track. Know where the nearest phone and first aid kit are in case of emergency. Keep the gate closed at all times. Be aware and respectful if another is having problems with a horse, is riding a young horse, or is a beginner or timid rider. Try not to get in the way of others. In an emergency get off: If a rider falls off and a horse gets loose, all riders should stop and if necessary dismount. Liveries/visitors to the school Try to schedule your riding for times when the arena is not being used for lessons. If riding during a lesson try to be unobtrusive. Clean up the arena after use. Clear out manure, put away jumps and pole. Leave it the way you found it or better.
