URC School Horse RideShare Leasing:
This program provides the fun of independent riding and horse care. Students in the RideShare program may use a URC horse to compete in off-site horse shows, when offered.
Half Lease: Includes two practice riding days. One of these days must be non-jumping. *Designated 'lesson-free' day Sunday.
Quarter Lease: Includes one practice riding day. *Designated 'lesson-free' day Friday.
* Additional rides may be purchased a la carte!
* Each horse may have more than one lessor at managements discretion - there is no 'full' lease option at this time
RideShare Lease Rules:
Students must be enrolled in a lesson program to participate in RideShare options.
All URC horses are shared with various lesson programs
The riding school has priority over the use of the horses at all times; Students cannot be guaranteed their RideShare horse during lesson times but alternates are always available. Ask the instructor which horse is appropriate - riding different horses makes a better rider!
Instructor approval is necessary to lease; leasers must be at least 10 years of age.
Students below Intermediate A are not permitted to jump during lease rides.
Never ride alone! There must be an adult in the barn area when you ride- no exceptions!
Children under the age of 13 must be directly supervised by their parent or guardian at all times.
Leasers may ride for a maximum of 45 minutes, which includes 5 minutes of mounting/warm-up and 10 minutes of cool out
Jumping - Leasers are not permitted to jump higher than their current lesson level
Maximum jump height for all leasers of 2'3"
No jumping cross country
No riding bareback without prior permission. Approved leasers may have one bareback ride per month!
Stay on URC trails: always hack out with another rider or person on foot! URC horses are not permitted on the road.
To ride in the indoor during a lesson, you must ask the instructors permission- this is not typically permitted
Summer Leasing: you may not ride during summer camp hours nor may you ride on Sundays during summer camp weeks.
Children that lease may not be dropped off during camp hours
Currently, all lease rides must be scheduled in advance by appointment and times strictly adhered to.
*All other COVID-19 policies apply*
