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.

  •  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 with a maximum jump height for all leasers of 2'6"

  • 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*
