Policies

• New students are required to take a private 1/2 hour lesson to assess their riding ability.
• An approved original waiver packet must be on file prior to booking your first lesson.
• A separate waiver is required for each rider.

• Mead Farm reserves the right to substitute a comparable instructor without prior notification.

• All Students must wear jeans or long pants and hard soled shoes/boots with a slight heel.
• New riders are able to borrow a helmet for their first lesson. After the first lesson, riders are required to have their own equipment.

• In order to cancel a lesson, clients must call the office at 203-322-4984 or email us at meadfarm@hotmail.com at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled lesson. Please be aware that lessons canceled less than 24 hours prior to your lesson time and “No Shows” will be charged in full.

• Lessons are “on as scheduled” unless you are notified by Mead Farm. We will call or email you if riding lessons are canceled for that day. Horsemanship will be offered in lieu of riding.

Seasonal Riding Sessions run approximately 12 weeks. To reserve a weekly lesson whether private, semi-private or group, a full payment for the entire session is required at registration. Horsemanship classes are offered in lieu of riding on days of inclement weather. The first horsemanship class offered for each session is mandatory. Each subsequent horsemanship class offered is optional at regular horsemanship class rates. If you wish to pay as you go, your lesson is not guaranteed and scheduling must be done on a week by week basis. Payment is required in advance to schedule the lesson.

• A valid waiver packet must be on file before scheduling any lesson or attending any program.

What People Are Saying...

The staff was great and very knowledgeable. The owner joined us during the wine and cheese time and was pleasant and funny and made us feel very welcomed there. I loved actually getting to learn how to properly ride a horse rather than just being thrown on a horse without any instruction. I would definitely recommend Mead Farm to a friend and I would go back again.
