Frequently Asked Questions:
What do I need for my first lesson?
All riders should wear long pants and closed toed shoes, preferably boots with a one inch heel. We can provide a helmet for your first lesson, but we recommend purchasing a helmet, boots, and riding pants after a couple of lessons. We are happy to recommend places to purchase these items!
What are some of the benefits of horseback riding?
Horseback riding has numerous physical, mental, and emotional benefits. It is a fun and challenging form of exercise that can get your heart rate up, increase balance and coordination, as well as improve core strength. Learning proper horse handling and riding is a great way to gain confidence both around animals and in everyday life. Horses are incredibly intuitive animals and the special bond they share with humans is enjoyed by many!
Do you offer gift certificates?
Yes! Gift certificates are a great gift for friends and family members. They can be purchased for a single or package of lessons. Contact us to find out more!
Will I be able to compete at horse shows? What if I have no interest in competing?
Yes! There are many opportunities to compete on a local, regional, and national level for beginners to advanced riders. We also welcome students who love horses and riding, but do not wish to compete. There is something for everyone to get involved in beyond lessons at Travelda!
What is your cancellation policy?
In order to accommodate our riders with horses and ring time, we enforce a 24 hr cancellation policy. We are happy to reschedule your lesson with advance notice. If you do not contact us within 24 hours of your lesson, you will owe the full amount for the lesson.
