I will wear proper riding attire when riding (including boots, breeches and a helmet if under eighteen years of age). I will put my tack and equipment away clean and properly stored.
I will turn off all lights when not using, coil up all hoses/turn off water when finished, clean out any buckets used, shut all pasture gates behind me, and most importantly, be aware of the well-being of all the horses on the premises. I will alert the management in the event I notice any emergency or unusual behavior/activity with any horse.
I will discuss any feed changes with the Barn Manager and allow her to arrange for it. I will obtain the owner’s permission before feeding other horses any treats or other foods.
I agree to pay for any emergency veterinarian care the management of CreekSide EquiCenter/veterinarian on call may deem necessary in my absence, understanding the management’s commitment/responsibility to first attempt to locate /notify me of an emergency situation.
I will always properly walk and cool my horse before returning him to pasture or stall. I will properly groom my horse prior working him as well.
I will provide a halter of good condition, lead rope, winter blanket, summer sheet and fly mask/spray for my horse.
I will ask my visitors to please remain outside of the pastures or stalls unless prior arrangements have been made with the management. I will assist them in obtaining/signing a hold-harmless form before allowing them access to any horse on the premises.
If at any time I am displeased with another student, instructor or member of management (or policy), I will speak to them directly regarding the issue in an effort to solve it privately. If a resolution cannot be agreed upon, I will seek the help of another person in management to assist in the discussion of the problem. At no time will I confide with other boarders/instructors associated with CreekSide EquiCenter regarding the problem, unless otherwise agreed upon with management. Nothing serves to undermine a professional/respectful environment quite like “barn gossip.” It is very counterproductive to the learning process. I will remember to keep my speech/conduct respectful at all times.
I will clearly label my personal equipment and belongings and keep them stored either in my personal tack trunk, area of tack room or hung on my stable door. I will not borrow another’s belongings without first gaining permission and returning them when I am finished.
I will sweep clean the aisle/mats and grooming/wash-rack areas each time I use them and before riding. I will discard any hair from drain covers after each use of wash-rack and be careful to not allow any large clumps of hair or dirt to go down the drains.
I will refrain from using any foul language, smoking or consuming alcoholic beverages while on the stable premises.
I will leave my pets at home unless otherwise authorized. I will not leave my visiting pet unattended and will keep them on a leash at all times. I agree to clean up after my visiting pets.
I will park my vehicle in designated parking areas only.
I will not enter the pasture of another horse besides my own without first getting permission. I will never enter a pasture that is housing a stallion.
I will limit my riding to the designated areas on the property, primarily the indoor and outdoor arena.
I will refrain from any running, yelling or quick movements in or around the barn/pasture areas.
I will not bring/ride bikes or motorcycles on the premises.
I will smile a lot and have a lot of fun (despite all these rules!!!)
