All scheduled riding lessons must be paid in advance. Non-boarders are expected to pay for all riding lessons by the 3rd of the month. Boarders are billed for scheduled riding lessons on a monthly basis.  Please note a scheduled riding lesson is a lesson time slot reserved for that rider, regardless of whether the rider is out of town, ill, or unable to ride. Payment may be made via cash, check, bank transfer, Venmo or PayPal. Electronic payments are preferred.  If lesson payments are not made by the 3rd of the month, a $35 late fee may be assessed. 


LESSON CANCELLATION POLICY: (What happens when a rider cancels their lesson(s).) 

If any rider cancels a scheduled lesson for any reason, including rider illness or injury, human or equine, the rider forfeits their lesson fee. We ask that riders give ample notice if a lesson must be canceled. If the rider is a "no show" and gives no cancellation notification, the cancellation fee is $75. If a rider must miss lessons, the lesson slot still must be paid in full at the first of the month, and make-up lessons will not be given.  Please note CCT will, in good faith, try to provide make up learning opportunities, but these opportunities will not be offered automatically, nor will all learning opportunities be mounted lessons.  Please note also that if a rider misses more than 2 scheduled lessons in a row, this is considered relinquishment of the lesson time. Inclement weather does not constitute "missing a scheduled lesson," because lessons will be cancelled by the farm if there is bad weather. 

BOARDER VACATION POLICY: (What happens when a rider must cancel their lessons over an extended period of time.) 

If a rider who boards a horse with CCT must miss lessons due to an annual vacation or must miss more than one lesson due to illness or injury, the boarder will be charged the normal lesson fees, and the horse will be put into training for the number of rides that equals the number of lessons missed. (Example 1: If two lessons will be missed due to vacation, the horse will receive two training rides.) Please note the boarder vacation policy will be applied for only one extended absence per 12 month period per client. An "extended absence" constitutes an absence in which 2 or more lessons will be missed. Once the boarder vacation policy has been applied, future lesson absences will fall under the Lesson Cancellation Policy and training rides will not automatically apply. If training rides are requested,  normal fees for training will be invoiced to the horse owner, the exception being if the boarder allows CCT to use his or her horse for regularly scheduled riding lessons appropriate to the horse's level of training while the boarder is absent. (Example 2: If two lessons will be missed due to vacation, and the horse is used in lessons during the owner's absence, the horse will receive training rides for each lesson the rider has missed.  If the rider misses 3 lessons, the horse will receive 3 training rides.)

CCT MAKE-UP LESSON POLICY: (What happens when CCT must cancel lessons due to bad weather, out of town competitions, etc.) 

If CCT must cancel riding lessons, CCT will make every effort to offer make-up lessons, training rides, or other learning opportunities in place of missed lessons, such as one-on-one training planning sessions; however, all make-up lessons may not always be made up if time and circumstances do not allow it.  While CCT will always try to ensure riders and boarders receive value for paid lessons cancelled by CCT, this may not always be possible, and we apologize in advance for this inconvenience.  


Please arrive 30 minutes prior to your riding lesson to groom and saddle your horse. A $20 tacking fee will be charged for riders who do not arrive in time to tack up for their riding lesson.  


  • Coaching & expenses are $150 per day, per rider, per event, (including travel days) for all shows and schoolings. 

  • Cross-country schoolings and shows are a minimum fee of $500 per day paid to CCT.

  • On January 1 and June 1 of each year, a signup will go out for competitions and schoolings we are attending.  All riders are expected to use the CCT show signup. Competing without a CCT trainer present is not permitted unless special arrangements have been made with CCT management. 

  • The maximum number of riders CCT will coach at a schooling show is 8 riders.  The maximum number of riders CCT will coach at a USEA show is 5 riders. The maximum number of riders CCT will coach at a hunter or dressage show is 10 riders.   

  • Other expenses, such as golf cart rentals, will be charged to riders on an as-needed basis and all competitors will divide these expenses among the riders competing.



 A $100 cancellation fee will be charged to any rider that has submitted a show entry form to a show organizer and cancels within 7 (seven) days of the competition, unless a doctor's note or veterinarian's note is provided to CCT  via email or hard copy.  PLEASE NOTE: A notification of cancellation by a parent does not waive this fee, and this fee will not be waived due to bad weather unless a show organizer cancels the competition.
