Welcome to the Edgebrook Family!
God has blessed us tremendously with the ability to own, live, and work at a place that has been our lifelong dream. If you ever have any questions you can usually catch me at the barn or give us a call, text, or email. We strive to answer all your questions promptly. Dustin and I welcome you into our home and we thank you in advance for the care and respect that you exhibit while you are here.

NEW LESSON CLIENTS
New lesson clients will need to complete several forms before their first lesson. You may complete them online or fill them out at the barn before your first lesson. In an effort to save paper, we encourage you to complete these forms online!
Please note that lessons are required to be paid a month in advance. Once you decide on a lesson schedule, we will email you an invoice on/about the 25th of each month for the next month’s lessons. You MUST GIVE 24 HOURS NOTICE if you are cancelling a lesson. If you cancel a lesson more than 24 hours in advance, you may schedule a make-up lesson within the same month. It gets extremely difficult to schedule make-up lessons around the existing schedule, therefore you are only allowed one make-up lesson per month and it is up to YOU to reschedule your lesson with your trainer!
Recommended Riding Attire and Safety:
Below is a list of riding attire suggestions and safety considerations that will help you get the most from your lessons. We are dedicated to making your riding experience both safe and enjoyable!
- Helmets are required. Safety is the top priority in our riding lessons and students must wear a helmet at all times while on a horse. If you have your own ASTM approved riding helmet, please bring it. If not, we have approved helmets for students to use during lessons. Bicycle helmets and other helmets not designed for horseback riding are not allowed as they may not withstand the impact of a fall.
- Boots with at least a 1″ heel are preferred. Please do not wear tennis shoes, hiking boots or sandals! If you do not have appropriate riding boots, please contact us and we will be happy to assist you with recommendations on where to purchase them.
- Breeches or jeans are required for riding. Pants should not be too baggy or loose, the same applies to tops.
- Please do not wear any loose jewelry, such as long earrings, bracelets or necklaces.
NEW BOARDING CLIENTS
If you are interested in boarding your horse at Edgebrook, you will first need to contact us to get a copy of our boarding contract. In addition to the boarding contract, you will also need a signed Rules Form and an Emergency Contact Form for both you and your horse. Those can been completed here or blank forms are available on the barn desk for you to complete. Once completed, please deposit them in the “completed forms” box on the top of the barn desk. From there all of the forms will be filed in a secure location except for the Emergency Contact Form which is always kept in the barn desk and is accessible by anyone at the barn in case of an emergency situation.
The highest compliment our clients can pay us is the referral of a friend. Please let us know if you were referred by a current client.
Current clients can now receive a complimentary 30 minute private lesson when they refer a new client (the new client must sign up for a minimum of 1 month of lessons).
