FOOD & DRINK : At Januli Farms we want everyone to feel comfortable and welcome. Students have access to clean washroom facilities, an outside kitchen with hot and cold running water, napkins, snacks and bottled water is available in the tack room refrigerator at all times.
HELMETS are provided for students if they don't have their own. We strongly advise if you are taking on going lessons to get your own helmet fitted to your head size and shape and that is most comfortable to you. Helmets come in many sizes and shapes ( round vs oval ), etc..
WHAT TO WEAR : Well fitting and comfortable boots with at least a leg height going over your ankle bone. Some companies make tennis/hiking shoes with a heel that are also appropriate for riding. Riding boots are preferred and can be purchased at the local tack stores or on line. If you don't know what to buy, we can help assist you in purchasing the proper boots for your riding style. Long pants, breeches or similar are required. Some riders prefer to wear gloves and this is an option. Breathable light weight leather or calf skin are best. Shirts that fit without being excessively baggy. It is hard to see body position through 10 yards of extra fabric.
LESSONS: All lessons at Januli Farms facility are private. We ask that if you arrive early for your lesson, please be quiet so that the lesson in progress is not interfered with. Each lesson starts with grooming, tacking up and a warm up in the arena. Then depending on your riding style and advancement, we go on from there. Any and all questions are invited whenever you think of them. This is a learning environment, so questions are encouraged and welcome.
GROUP LESSONS are offered at off site locations. We offer mobile to you service at no extra charge for most SW locations.
GUESTS: are welcome to come and watch. There is a covered seating area with table and chairs where they can sit and view either at ground level or on the second floor balcony. We ask that guests remain in the seating areas while lessons are in progress.
Arrival: Come with a good attitude and an open mind and have fun !!
