Kristin’s Horse Sense mission is to provide a program for youth and adults that includes riding and care of ponies and horses. The goal is to develop responsibility through leadership and promote partnership without dominance, teamwork without fear, willingness without intimidation, and harmony without coercion - Horsemanship confidence.
RAIN! and Inclement Weather including heat advisories above 90 degrees:
We love rain here in Sunny California. Unfortunately, we do not have a covered arena.
Rain: Unless otherwise contacted by Horse Sense Education and Advocacy rainy weather lessons are a "go".
We have a dry clubhouse to teach in.
If we have a light drizzle, we continue lessons. However should the sky decide to give us loads more precious water than raincoat wearable showers, we tend to cancel.
Note: We are famous in 'these here' hills for on again, off again weather. Should the weather be confusing, we keep the lesson a "go" until half an hour before. If the rain starts up the teacher will contact you via phone to let you know of the cancellation.
You have questions the rainy day of ? Feel free to be in contact with the Horse Sense scheduler prior to your lesson for additional information.
Little kids under age 9: Unless you like to ride in the puddles for a fun rain experience or want to learn those horsemanship lessons you don't usually get on sunny days, we completely understand your need to stay indoors.
We will contact you to coordinate the day of with no cancellation fees applied.
Sunny day after a storm: We ride!!
There is so much to learn and the walkways are available to learn on.
We will be announcing any day of schedule changes on our Facebook site: https://www.facebook.com/HorseSenseEA/
