MONTHLY TUITION PAYMENT STRUCTURE
Horseback riding lessons are on a monthly tuition and are required to be prepaid by the first of the Month. If tuition isn’t paid by the first of the month, then the rider will be taken off of the schedule. McCord Training accepts cash, checks, PayPal, or credit cards.
· Monthly Tuition Prices
□ Weekly Private hour lessons $260
□ Weekly Private Half hour lessons $160
□ Weekly Hour Semi-Private Lessons $200 per Rider
□ Biweekly Private Hour Lesson $130
□ Biweekly Private Half an Hour Lessons $80
If riders are unable to make their scheduled lesson, we do ask that we are notified 48 hours in advance. A makeup lesson can be scheduled when notified at least 48 hours advance and if there is availability in our schedule. The makeup lesson must take place in the month in which the original lesson was scheduled and paid for. If a rider no shows for a lesson or cancels last minute (less than 48 hours before the lesson), there will be NO rescheduling that lesson. You may opt out of lessons at any time but there will be NO REFUNDS given.
Some months have five weeks instead of four. On those months, the tuition payment will remain the same. A typical weekly lesson that falls on the fifth week of the month will be considered a “free” or “make-up” lesson.
LATE ARRIVALS/NO SHOWS
Any client who arrives within 20 minutes after the start of their lesson will still receive a partial lesson which will end at their scheduled time. Any rider who arrives 20 minutes or more after the start of their lesson will be treated as a no show and charged for the lesson.
No shows are when a client is scheduled for a lesson but never shows up. The client will not be allowed to reschedule a no-show lesson and no refund will be given.
WEATHER/MCCORD TRAINING CANCELATIONS
McCord Training reserves the right to cancel lessons. If McCord Training cancels lessons, they will issue a credit for any lessons that aren’t or cannot be rescheduled. Lessons maybe cancelled due to safety concerns, an emergency, road conditions, weather, ect.
McCord Training does take major holidays off – Labor Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s.
For Vacations we are planning on taking a couple weeks off. There will be no lessons the first week of July from July 3rd to July 8th, 2023. The second week of vacation is to be determined but we will notify clients at least a month in advance.
For those months in which there are scheduled vacation and holidays, tuition will remain the same. We will reschedule any lessons that fall on a holiday or on a vacation.
Lessons will be scheduled around any events, camps or shows. We do two shows a year for our riders to participate in. Participants in weekly lessons can sign up and come to all events and shows at no charge to them. Those in biweekly lessons will be able to participate in one show and one event a year at no cost to them.
We give 2 camps a year and we will schedule lessons around our camp times. Everybody who wants to participate in our camps will pay the full price to attend.
DISCHARGING A PARTICIPANT
There are circumstances when we are unable to accommodate participants such as weight, behavior, or a medical condition. It is the rider’s responsibility to verify with their doctor if horseback riding or groundwork is an appropriate activity for them. If a rider has seizure condition or has down syndrome, then we require a signed doctors note before they are allowed to participate in horseback riding lessons. If it is determined that the rider is unable to ride, then we can set up groundwork sessions if appropriate.
We follow the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH Intl.) standards and guidelines to help determine which participants we can safely serve. If situations arise in which it is deemed a safety concern for rider, participant, or volunteers, then there will be a conversation between Instructor, rider, and/or guardian to either dismiss the participant or come up with alternative arrangements.
At McCord training we have both Indoor and Outdoor areans
