How our Lesson Program Works
Thorncroft is a mainstreaming facility where people with and without disabilities come together to ride, learn and relate to one another. Within this accepting environment they promote growth within each other.
Thorncroft offers weekly lessons charged on a monthly basis. Riders ride at the same time each week, on the same day. We offer half-hour private lessons, 45 minutes semi-privates (two riders,) or one-hour group lessons. The rate for each lesson remains the same. Thorncroft does not offer one-time rides, trail rides, trial lessons, or time riding without an instructor. All riding occurs in a lesson with an instructor present. At this time, Thorncroft does not offer jumping as part of our lessons.
Thorncroft offers a monthly rate of $225.00 for lessons. The $225.00 covers four lessons, one lesson a week with payment due by the 7 th of each month. *Due to the number of rider we teach, we are unable to offer makeup lessons due to illness or otherwise, or offer any discount for missed lessons. If there is any reason Thorncroft needs to cancel your lesson, we will prorate the $225.00 fee. We offer a $25.00 discount if tuition is paid by the 7th of the month. Please refer to our Lesson Payment Policy for further information.
