Riding Priviledges

Co-op members have the privilege of riding Schoolies in the arena, on the trail, and in clinics. Two-time reserve rider on the German Olympic Eventing team, Jurgen Gohler, teaches almost every month in clinics at the Stables that are open to Boarders, Co-op members and the community. Other clinics may be organized according to interest.

There are very few restrictions on riding at the Stables, but we do follow several safety policies.

  • All riders must wear helmets while mounted on any horse.
  • Schoolies may only be ridden with a close-toed, heeled shoe or boot unless the rider chooses to ride without stirrups. 
  • Schoolies may not be ridden on the trail alone.
  • Assistants may not ride alone.
  • Schoolies may not be ridden below a real feel temperature of 15 degrees.
  • Schoolies may not be jumped outside of a lesson.
  • Lessons take priority for arena use, but other riders may ask the instructor for permission to ride around the lesson.
