PAINTS-PLUS EQUINE CENTER LESSON STUDENT RULES

YARD RULES • When in yard, barn or arenas, all horses must be supervised and have a halter, rope or bridle on for control. • Please do not hand feed any lesson horses or give treats to other people’s horses over fence. Chop apples and put in feed tubs or nose bags. • Smoking and swearing is prohibited on the on the property. No dogs allowed as we already have 3. Please respect the privacy of the yard areas in front and behind the house. Do not enter the back yard. In the yard, dispose of your horse’s manure in a pen or manure spreader or use the muck tubs provided.
BARN RULES • Barn and Arena doors are to be kept closed unless above 10 and no mosquitos. Windows may be opened in summer months to cool barn, but please close before you go. Please close barn door overnight if you are the last to leave in the evening. • Please only tie horses in grooming stalls in barn or to rings outside of indoor arena or to outdoor arena fence posts. • Sweep up dirt/hair and your horse’s manure BEFORE and AFTER riding, using shovels and tubs provided. • Put grooming equipment away during your ride. PPEC is not responsible for lost or stolen articles. • Anyone caught by security cameras as having not cleaned up will get a $10/incident clean-up charge added. • Last person out of the barn & arena, please turn off all inside lights. Outside lights and stairway are on timers.
ARENA RULES • Everyone riding or working at PPEC must read, understand & sign/submit a Release of Liability Waiver. • General riding is allowed in the arenas during lessons, however the lesson instructor has control of the arena. • Heeled footwear and long pants are mandatory while riding. No sandals or bare feet when near any horse. • ASTM Approved Riding Helmets are mandatory for riders under 18, and for all riders while in lessons. • Please adhere to the following arena etiquette: When you are entering the indoor arena, open door slowly and announce yourself by saying “Door!”. Check your girth and tack before mounting. If a jumping lesson is in progress, familiarize yourself with the course being ridden so as not to get caught in an unsafe location. Horses in lesson have the right of way. • If a rider and/or horse should fall or in case of a power outage, STOP all movement immediately and listen to instructors instructions. Backup lights should go on.
LESSON HORSE RULES • Arrive at least ½ hour before your lesson to catch and tack and wait for instructor or TA to arrive to assist. • Cross tie horses in grooming stalls (attach only one or make barrier across stall by attaching together when horse eating but as soon as done eating cross tie again so they don't break cross tie ropes by pushing on them, expect for the couple horses that do not cross tie - noted on name tags). You may tie to attached to outside of indoor arena or outdoor arena posts, short enough so they can't step over their rope. • Winter Blankets - undo back first and do up front first on winter blankets correctly to avoid injuries to people or horses and destruction of blankets. Make sure clips are closed properly as sometimes they stick. • Always groom, tack-up and cool-out your horse as per lesson instructors or TA’s directions. • Use only tack/supplies designated for your lesson horse. If you cannot locate something, please ask. • Please pick-up manure & sweep barn before and after riding. Grooming buckets should be put away during lesson. Keep your stuff upstairs or in your locker. PPEC is not responsible for lost or stolen articles. • Do not hand feed the horses unless instructed to use a treat to catch. Put approved treats in their buckets. • If you observe something that you don’t think is right, alert the instructor or TA, don’t attempt to correct alone. • Please do not “beautify” the lesson horses (no cutting manes/tails, no braids left in when turned out.)
