RCRA reserves the right to assign students to appropriate groups, horses and/or coaches.

RCRA Rider Information

For group lessons, semi-private lessons and private lessons (excluding the “Learn to Ride” package) riders must arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the lesson to sign in and then to groom and tack up their horse. Those who are late for tacking up may lose their riding lesson time. It is the rider’s responsibility to have their horse ready and prepared for their lesson before the lesson time starts. Riders who need help with tacking or untacking will have help from the coach as part of their lesson time.

All riders must wear their own approved ASTM/SEI helmets. The Riding Academy will provide helmets for  beginner riders for the first couple of lessons; however we do not guarantee their fit and function for safety. Riders must wear proper riding footwear – a hard-soled boot with a minimum ½” heel and a maximum 2” heel. No running shoes, platform boots, or open-toed shoe are allowed in the barn area. Please tie long hair back. Beginner riders should wear comfortable pants (jeans not recommended/ no shorts). Otherwise standard riding wear is expected. No baggy clothing.
