Q: What is required to hold my spot in a clinic?
A: Tuition is required to be paid in full to hold your spot for the clinic. We prefer for everything to be paid in full before the clinic; but as long as the tuition is paid in full before the clinic, we can settle up on unfinished business at some point during the clinic.
Q: Do I need to check in with someone when I arrive at the clinic?
A: There is no official Check-in process, All hookups and stalls on the east side as well as all stalls in the arena are turned on and unlocked so feel free to hookup to and put your horse in any open hookup and stall! If you have a bunkhouse, they will be ready to go, just use your Code to get in. If you have any problems at all, call: 940-626-9192. Other than that, all you need to do is show up at 8 am in the cookhouse for breakfast the first day of the clinic, and we will fill you in from there! Your horse will not need to be saddled before breakfast, just feed them and we will tell you when to saddle!
Q: How long will it take to process my tuition?
A: This process will take 24-48 hours. Once processed we will email a clinic packet with more information regarding your clinic. You will also be receiving an automated email from our booking system at the time of booking that will tell you all the transaction details of everything you’ve booked. If you’ve booked a bunkhouse or cabin, you will get another automated email the day before your scheduled arrival date with the code to your bunkhouse or cabin.
Q: How soon will I need to sign up before the clinic I’m interested in will fill up?
A: It is recommended you sign up for the clinic you’re interested in 3 months before the clinic starts. With the limited number of students we take clinics fill up fast.
Q: I’m signed up as an alternate for a clinic. How much notice will I have before I know if I’m going to get into the clinic?
A: Unfortunately emergencies happen at the most inopportune times. Therefore, it is impossible for us to know if or when an opening will come up. You may get 1 months’ notice or you may get 1 days’ notice.
Q: What time should I arrive for the clinic?
A: All of our clinics start at 8:00 A.M. Therefore, be there in time to get settled before breakfast. If you’re traveling in from a distance we recommend you arrive the night before and get yourself and your horse(s) settled for an evening of rest.
Q: What if I have to cancel or cannot make it to the clinic?
A: If you cancel out outside of 30 days prior to the clinic you quality for a full refund or we can roll you to another clinic.
