Behavior: Students who participate must have the capacity to follow directions, collaborate, and have self-control. Horses are dangerous animals and certain behaviors cannot be exhibited around them at this facility
Fitness: Students must have a physical dated within the last year. Must also have enough strength, balance, and flexibility to mount a horse, maintain straight posture, and balance while the horse is in motion. There are weight limits, as a horse cannot carry more than 20% of it's own body weight without serious injury
Google classroom: Students should have their own email addresses that contain their names that are not connected to any other schools or google classrooms (it will not allow us to add them) because we do assign weekly work. They will also be required to complete a few lessons before the start of their camp session. They will also have a short assignment to complete at camp each week
Fees: There will be a weekly tuition fee due the week before (amount TBD but is not expected to exceed $60 per week)
Food: Each parent will be asked to sign up for a healthy snack for the class (9 students). Please bring a filled reusable water bottle to class each day (we are reducing our carbon footprint and are eliminating single use plastic water bottles)
Clothing: Students should wear long pants that are not too tight nor too loose (no shorts, skirts, dresses, or sweats). Helmets will be provided and are required. Please wear hair in flat styles that can fit securely under a helmet such as low ponytails, two low braids/French braids, corn rows (not braided into a high ponytail), etc.
Activities: At CJE, we just don't ride horses, but do other activities as well. Classwork, gardening, exercise, and other components are mandatory in the program. There will also be art and games!
