Instruction is available in multiple disciplines dependent to what you signed up for on your own or leased horse. If unsure if you or your horse’s ability, check with a clinic director for more information on what the lesson type or experience level needed is required. SPHC Clinic Directors reserve the right to assign riders to appropriate groups, within the hosted clinic. All riders will be assigned to cover clinic duties such as jump crew.


Arrival Time - For Clinic lessons, riders must arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the lesson to help set up or take down any required materials for that clinic type. Those who are late may lose their riding lesson time dependent on clinician discretion. It is the rider’s responsibility to have themselves and their horse ready to start when the clinician states.
