Please review the following Farm Policies. All riders must review and acknowledge their understanding of these important rules when registering. 


  • Riders must use an approved USEF helmet that fits properly. No bike, ski, etc. helmets are allowed. Helmets are available to borrow at the farm if needed.

  • All students must wear paddock boots or shoes with a 1⁄4 - 1⁄2“ heel and a hard sole. Tennis shoes, rubber mud boots or high heels are not allowed.

  • Please wear warm clothes, gloves and boots. The indoor arena is protected from the elements but not heated, so warm clothes and layers are necessary. 


  • Arrive on time, which is typically 10 minutes before your scheduled ride time.  

  • Lessons are cancelled if the temperature is above 90° or below 15°.

  • Instructors need the complete attention of their students. Parents are encouraged watch their students from the upstairs Observation Room to eliminate distraction. 

  • No one is to enter the ring without permission.


  • Only students that have a signed release form are allowed to handle, brush, ride, and participate in any Shenanigans Farm horse activities. All others need to stay in designated areas.

  • All friends and family must stay in designated viewing areas; guests are not allowed in grooming areas, riding arenas, stalls or paddocks.

  • Do not allow children to run, yell or scream. We have many horses and riders that may be startled by these activities.


  • The speed limit through the farm is 5 MPH. We have many children, pets and horses that need to be kept safe from speeding cars.

  • Please stay away from pond.

  • Do not park on the grass.

  • Leave your dogs at home.

  • Please ask prior to petting or feeding any treats to any horses and ponies.


  • One makeup date is offered per session.

  • Students should notify Shenanigans Farm if they are unable to attend class.
