SPECIAL EQUESTRIANS

MORE INFO

The Special Equestrian program at Triple R Ranch uses the movement and interaction of a horse to help individuals with physical disabilities. This riding program can help participants improve balance, core strength, flexibility, muscle tone, posture, coordination, and self-confidence.

- Volunteer Training: Thursday, September 9, 2021
- Lessons: September 16 - November 4, 2021

Fall 2021

Special Equestrians are dedicated pleasure riding lessons for the disabled.  It is our pleasure to be able to provide this program with our gentle horses and helpful volunteers.  There are two sessions every year in the spring and the fall, which each consist of eight weekly lessons.

Volunteers are an essential part of Special Equestrians, requiring three per participant (a horse handler and two side walkers). When you volunteer with Special Equestrians, you help people achieve things they may have never thought possible. You do not need any experience working with horses or individuals with disabilities. We will train you. We are always looking for volunteers who are committed and are reliable, willing to learn and be respectful to others.

For more information call our office at (757) 421-4177 or e-mail 3Rspecialequestrians@gmail.com

When Triple R Ranch opened its gates for the first time, horses were an important part of the Ranch's plans. We meet adults today who still remember the names of their favorite Triple R Ranch horses from when they were kids!

Horseback riding is still an integral part of Triple R Ranch year-round. Our riding program is supervised and taught by well-trained, qualified instructors who uphold safety as the top priority. With this focus in mind, we are proud to offer a variety of equestrian learning opportunities.

FAQ's

UPDATED APRIL 24, 2021

Frequently Asked Questions

What is your cancellation policy?

If you are unable to attend your regularly scheduled lesson, Triple R Ranch is not responsible to offer a make-up lesson. In case of inclement weather one of the Triple R Ranch staff will call and let you know if lessons are cancelled. We will offer up to two make-up lessons due to weather and will be credited to your online account as soon as possible. (Only applies to group lessons)

What should we wear?

Proper attire is required. Long pants, a boot with a 1” heel, and a SEI approved helmet is necessary for all students. Triple R Ranch
does provide appropriate helmets, but you may bring your own. If you need assistance searching for your own equipment, please call the office and we will be happy to assist you.

What is your prorate policy?

We are able to pro-rate the cost of the group riding lesson package based on the number of dates the student will be able to attend (up to two lessons). If the student or parent/guardian is aware of the dates the student will be missing and gives notice by the starting date of lessons, the cost of the session will be adjusted accordingly ($35 per lesson). This policy is not applicable for simply missing a lesson or if you have already received the full-payment discount. Notice must be given by the starting date of lessons to the Registrar (camp@triplerranch.org). This policy is not applicable to any absences made known after the time of registration. We hope this will help as families are budgeting and scheduling out the school year, and we hope you make riding at Triple R Ranch a part of that schedule! If you are signed up for private riding lessons, we do not pro-rate as you are able to make-up any lessons directly with the instructor (with 48 hours’ notice). Please send notice to the Registrar (camp@triplerranch.org) if you plan on missing any lessons.

Is there a discount for paying in full up front?

Yes. If you are paying in full for all 8 lessons by the first day of classes and not receiving a pro-rate, you will receive $20 off the total fee.

Can we request a specific time for the lesson?

When registering for any lessons at Triple R Ranch, you do so knowing that we will assign a time to you the week of the first lesson of the session. We want to be considerate of your schedule and place you/your rider(s) in the best level that is safe and challenging. Because of this, our lesson placements change each session. We will take time requests up to two weeks before the registration deadline. We cannot guarantee you will receive the time you requested, but we do all that we can to accommodate everyone. Please check the current session information for deadlines.
