Lessons Will Be Cancelled During: Icy rain, heavy snow fall, extreme cold temperatures.
Please note that cancellations will be posted on the homepage of the website and SDS Facebook page.

Inclement Weather Cancellations

- Correctly fitted helmet
- Boots with 1/2" - 1" heel
- Long pants for riding (we suggest breeches or snug fitting pants - loose pants and jeans can rub)

We recommend riders wear paddock boots with half chaps or tall boots to prevent rubs. Rubber riding boots are not ideal as they do not bend well at the ankle.

Long hair must be tied back
