Extreme Weather Policy
There are indeed enough clothes to mean that we can ride in ANY weather...let's face it we aren't made of sugar...BUT...there are times when it just isn't as much fun...we are out in the open and without shelter here, it can get pretty miserable...so we have come up with the following
On days where the weather is posted on networks to - 15 C or colder including windchill, the ranch will be CLOSED and there will be NO lessons that week.
On days where the weather is posted on networks to be +25 C or HIGHER the ranch will be CLOSED and there will be NO lessons that week
We will also close lessons in severe, high WIND for safety reasons.
RAIN coupled with HIGH winds will also have a factor in lesson safety. IF we are facing a combination of heavy rainfall with high winds we will cancel lessons along with any weather predictions of severe thunderstorms where warnings are in effect
We will post the closure on our Facebook page, DTH client page and text messages will be sent to those who have opted in. We will do everything possible to have these out the DAY BEFORE the scheduled lesson being cancelled.
On mornings/days of lessons and the weather has turned for the worse, we will do everything we can cancel the lesson BEFORE the class. If you arrive and we have called off the class....CARDS WILL NOT be punched.
We know cancelled lesson are FRUSTRATING...this is not something that we take lightly. When making the decision to cancel a lesson we, as a family, carefully balance
the health and well being of the horses
the health and well being of the riders
the SAFETY effects of the weather
the quality of instruction that can take place in extreme weather, the all around value, we are NOT comfortable having you pay for a lesson when the quailty is lacking.
