NO SMOKING in or close to any of the buildings. Please dispose of butts properly, not inside the buildings.
NO LUNGING while lessons are being given. If you want to lunge while lessons aren’t going on, but there is a rider in the ring, you must ASK PERMISSION FROM THE RIDER FIRST!
NO BORROWING TACK without the permission of the owner.
Everyone is responsible for their own equipment and tack, Four Seasons Ranch is not held responsible.
Sweep up BEFORE AND AFTER your ride, in the aisle. You are required to pick up all manure, hoof droppings, and other dirt before you leave to ride and after you come back and untack.
No unsupervised turnout or free lunging of any horse allowed in the arenas. Supervised free lunging is allowed as long as you are courteous to the other riders wanting to use the ring. Be courteous and see if they need the ring; ask for their permission first!
Proper dress is required in the barn at all times. No spaghetti/narrow strap tank tops, bare midriffs, very short shorts or open toe shoes permitted! For riding, jeans or schooling tights, proper paddock boots or cowboy boots and half chaps, or tall boots, and ASTM certified helmets required.
Boarders are allowed one tack box, one bridle rack, and one saddle rack PER STALL. No using multiple racks per horse, as space is limited. All of your belongings MUST fit inside the tack trunk. No leaving any items outside, on, or around the box or tack room. Only one saddle pad, one back pad, one girth, and one saddle are allowed to be left out on each saddle rack. In an effort to keep the common spaces neat and uniform, any additional items left out will be removed and/or placed inside of your tack trunk by staff.
