Riding Clinics - Clinics take place in a fun and safe atmosphere. Multiple venues included but not limited to indoor arenas, outdoor rings, and cross country course & trails, and more. Instructors are available in multiple disciplines and levels depending on you and your horses' interests. If unsure if you or your horse’s ability, contact one of our clinic directors for more information on the different services available and which may suit you best. SPHC Clinic Directors reserve the right to assign riders to appropriate groups, within the hosted clinic. Riders will be assigned to cover clinic duties such as jump crew.
Payment Policy - All Clinic fees are to be paid in order to reserve your spot. All required documentation & payment should be submitted a minimum of two weeks prior to clinic date. It is the responsibility of the parent/rider to ensure that your clinic fees are in good standing before any lesson occurs.
