Academy Team Requirements
Lessons: Because this is a competitive program, we expect each rider to take at least one lesson per week. In the two months prior to their competitions, students are required to take two or more lessons per week.
Competitions: In order to make the most of Academy Team and to ensure that every rider has a chance to grow during the show season, we ask that riders compete in AT LEAST TWO competitions per season.
Show Fees: Trainer fee: $150 per day; Shipping the horse: cost varies depending upon how far we travel; Supplements: cost varies, some horses require additional supplements to keep them healthy when we travel. We get stalls for the horses at most shows we attend, those fees and shavings for the stall will be discussed when entries are made. Tack stalls: we split the cost of tack, feed and get ready stalls between all horses attending each show. Fees for the shows will be billed out via email. Payment is expected before leaving for the show. Show fees do not cover your personal food, transportation, or hotel costs.
Equipment: Riders are asked to own their own stirrups and stirrup leathers. All show attire is to be purchased from a recommended vendor, and students should have their outfit purchased at least one month before their first show of the season.
Practice Rides: For multi day shows, students are expected to take part in a practice ride/lesson on the showgrounds the day prior to the show. Please be sure to plan accommodations accordingly if the showgrounds are not in the immediate area.
Volunteering: There are also volunteering opportunities during lesson hours. Students are encouraged to take part in the teaching process as a supplement to their lessons. This is not required, but it is encouraged.
