Every effort will be made to hold scheduled lessons. In the event of inclement weather, lessons will continue as planned and students will be instructed in the barn. Each session has horsemanship lessons built into the schedule, which are usually saved for rainy days. Students learn to groom the horses, learn about the tack (bridles and saddles), help with feeding the horses, etc. If NVTRP must cancel a lesson the staff will contact families by email and/or phone. Lessons will only be canceled in extreme weather cases when NVTRP deems that it is not safe to hold a lesson on the farm.
