  • Cancellation Agreement


    Lessons WILL NOT be cancelled due to inclement weather unless the road conditions are deemed unsafe to drive. This will be determined by Daystar Equestiran and communicated at a minimum of two (2) hours prior to the lesson start time. The student and parent/guardian understands lessons are dedicated to teaching students horsemanship skills and not riding skills alone. During inclement weather, lessons will be taught indoors and the students will learn valuable horsemanship skills that can only be taught on the ground (not riding). If the student or parent/guardian needs to cancel a lesson - outside of an emergency - the lesson must be cancelled BEFORE 8:00AM CST on the lesson date.


  • Reschedule/Refund Agreement


    All lessons cancelled BEFORE 8:00AM CST on the lesson date can be fully refunded or rescheduled at the student or parent/guardian's discretion. Lessons canceled or missed after 8:00AM CST on the day of the lesson - outside of an emergency - WILL NOT be refundable or rescheduled. Our instructors are sent lesson schedules in the mornings and expect to teach their scheduled lessons. If lessons are canceled by Daystar Equestrian due to inclement weather, holidays, emergencies, etc., the student or parent/guardian will be contacted for rescheduling.
