Classes & Lessons

GECI offers classes or lessons to people who provide their own horses (haul-in or boarders) or those leasing horses from GECI.  

Students leasing, boarding, or hauling-in their horses may sign up for classes below (email me if you want to be added or removed from a class).  Classes will have a max of 5 riders (usually 2-4).  Class descriptions are below.  Classes are 1 1/2 hours long, and $35/rider. If the classes don't suit your needs please contact Alicyn and we can set up a separate lesson, OR change the class type as long as there are no conflicts with the other riders. Lessons are scheduled on an "as need" basis.  Lessons are 1 hour long (including ground work & warm-up) group lesson -$30/rider; private- $45.

Riders scheduling lessons can do so anytime during open arena, at a time that fits their schedule. Open arena is between 8AM-9PM 7 days a week. Except when the barn is closed for some holidays &/or during scheduled class time. If there are no riders on the schedule for a particular class, then that time becomes open arena time.

Riders have 24 hours before classes or lessons to sign-up or cancel.

Classes and Lessons begin at the scheduled time, have your horse groomed and saddled by class/lesson start time. 

NOTE**Classes may have different levels of riders in them.  No rider will be asked to do something they are not prepared for; at the same time more advanced riders will be challenged sufficiently.  Classes are reserved for riders with some experience.  Beginners will need to schedule lessons outside of class time.
