General Coronavirus info
Lessons and training are still a GO.
WASH your hands BEFORE entering the barn (or go to the little house and wash your hands). When you are leaving the barn, please wash your hands again. There will also be hand sanitizer.
Please help us wipe down the “public areas” (such as people room/doorknobs at the little house, the peppermint container, etc) with wipes we provide. Thanks!
Cancelations: I ask if you/your rider/your family is sick to cancel your lesson and stay home. I am asking for a 24-hour notice but will be more flexible for the next two weeks. I ask that you give me as much notice as possible so I can keep things organized on my end. Please do NOT come to the barn if you are coughing/sneezing/fever or any other related symptoms. RESCHEDULE!
Sibling discount rate for lessons!
Do you have multiple kids with the horse bug? We want your children to be at the barn and not on the soccer field or basketball court. Nothing is better than an entire family that loves and lives the “horsey” lifestyle.
Rules for discount:
- Riders must be in group lessons. This does NOT apply to private or semi-private lessons.
- Siblings (both) MUST be in unlimited lessons OR rode twice a week (both siblings). This offer is NOT available for riders that pay and increased rate for one lesson a week
- This does not apply to extended family (cousins/aunt/uncle/etc). This does not apply to moth/fathers. This is a SIBLING discount.
- Riders must take a GROUP lesson at the SAME time. They cannot rode in different groups.
- Riders must prepay first ALL lessons by the 5th of the month and agree to the 24 hour cancellation policy.
THE DISCOUNT is 10% off the total cost.
If siblings (2 kids) ride twice a week each (and prepay), you will save $64 total.
If you have siblings and you purchase 2 “unlimited packages”, you will save $76 total.
Unlimited Packages for Lessons at LF:
This means your rider can join any group that has availability. You should have these scheduled as regular weekly times and you can add or cancel (24 hours in advance). You cannot just “show up”. It will be very easy to get in 3-4 groups a week.
If you sign up for unlimited you will need to give a 2 month (60 day) notice to go back to a regular lesson package of 2 lessons a week. This is to ensure riders have a consistent training schedule. There will be a contract to sign that states the rules above.
The cost is $380 PER RIDER per unlimited package
This is our second write up about barn helpers. I want to give a special
Shout out to our two newest members, Blaire and Julia. They have gone above and beyond to prove their dedication and dependability. Wayyyyy to Go Ladies (and props to their parents for understanding why instilling work ethic is paramount). They join an amazing group of individuals that love our horses and barn family as much as I do and prove it with their help daily. (Michelle, Ash, Sadie, Ella, Madison, Steven, Brennan, Mary, Kelly).
Just a reminder that we love to get the kids more involved at the barn. Being a barn helper or volunteer is a great way to learn responsibility, work ethic and teamwork.
DO NOT EXPECT to receive credit towards lessons for your rider’s “help”. Your rider is not that helpful when they are learning chores and responsibilities at the farm. They will take 10 times longer to do one chore. They will cut corners and I will have to go in behind them to make sure the task was actually completed. When your rider has PROVEN that their help is actually makes our barn operate more efficiently, I will reward them with barn credit. Until then.... BE THANKFUL THAT I AM TEACHING THEM LESSONS THAT WILL HELP THEM GROW INTO PRODUCTIVE TEENS AND ADULTS. The barn IS NOT ABOUT “what do I get in return.....”. The barn IS ABOUT TEACHING THAT LIFE AND SUCCESS IS A PROCESS....ENJOY THE RIDE!!
Being a barn helper/volunteer is not for the weak of heart. This is not a glorified babysitting service. This is not about playing with ponies and horses. It’s about being a part of the everyday operation of a farm.
A helper/volunteer must be ready to commit to the following rules:
-Must come every week at the same time unless a different arrangement has been made
-can not walk around with cell phones in hand. Put in little house or tack room
-must be willing to complete any job asked of them. This includes, sweeping, dusting, raking, cleaning tack. Every job is important when running a farm.
-must be respectful of senior helpers (Michelle, Rachel, Ashleigh, Mary)
-great attitude is a must. No complaining, pouting, or sassiness.
-must wear appropriate clothes :
muck boots, coveralls, winter gloves and lots of layers.
STILL INTERESTED??? That’s awesome and email the barn to set up a schedule!
Communicating with the barn
Emergency: If you have an emergency, please text Kelly or Kathryn on their cell phone. An emergency would involve the health of the rider or horse during the hours of 8 am-8 pm. Emergencies would include cancellations with 24 hours or less notice. Please remember that Kathryn works from 6:30 am (earlier at a show) until 8:30 pm (later at a show). She wants to answer all texts but her schedule often doesn’t allow for it. Please use the cell phone to text for emergencies.
Best way to communicate all non-emergencies Landonfarm@yahoo.com
When you email the barn, Kelly will intercept the email. She will then answer the email or forward it to Kathryn if necessary.
Just a reminder that you should communicate all rescheduling and cancellations by EMAIL to the barn
