Tuition is monthly and due by the 7th of each month. Tuition includes two vaulting lessons per week
First, arrive and stretch. The class will do some warm up exercises to improve cardio and strength. We will practice moves and routines on the vaulting barrels and the horse, rotating people, and practicing on the barrel when not on the horse. At the close of class, students will help put the horse and equipment away, and clean up the vaulting areas.

If students will be handling the horse in the barn, or to and from barn, they must also wear boots. Hair must be neatly pulled back in a bun, braid, or pony tail.
