Sunshine Riding School would like to wish all our Islamic Riders and their families a blessed and peaceful Ramadan. During this time of fast we believe it is important that you take appropriate care and caution when riding horses. As Ramadan may prove challenging this year with the long days over the solstice, we are quite understanding if you would wish to suspend your lessons until after Eid. Should you wish to continue, we will support you and will ask regularly if you are feeling strong enough to continue in the lesson. The last thing we want during this time is for you to experience a fall. We wish you a peaceful and reflective month.
It is with a heavy heart….
We have always tried to be understanding about last minute cancellations here at Sunshine. I, Kimberly, have children and know that they can get sick or injured at a moment’s notice. However, recently there have been several people who have taken advantage of my good nature. As you know, we have a limited class size. This is not because we can’t go larger, but I won’t allow it for safety reasons. Rider Safety is Top Priority here. Therefore, people are being turned away from lessons and having to book at a less desirable time for them. After doing this, I then have half a class not show up. It’s not fair — to me, the horses and the other riders. Therefore, I must now institute a blanket 24 Hour Notice for cancellations. Any cancellations in this window will incur a £20 charge payable immediately on your debit or credit card. Refusal of payment will result in suspension of riding. We don’t take payment in advance but this policy can be reviewed at any time. I’m sorry if this upsets you, but we try to play fair here for everyone.
