- Arrive 8:30 each morning; for coffee and snacks and begin at 9:00.
- We will end between 4:30 and 5:00 pm
- If you decide to join the entire course, you will stay through the next two days!
Please schedule your travel accordingly.
Morning beverages, water and light snacks will be available throughout the day. Lunches will be on you, and we will have them brought in or go out. We do our best to have healthy options for most everyone. However, if you have dietary restrictions or allergies it is important that you bring what you need with you.
Climate: Each location is quite seasonal. In the spring, bring layers, in the summer temps can be hot so be sure to bring hats and dress accordingly. It is lovely in Arizona, seasonal in Albuquerque and very HUMID in Georgia. We will have plenty of water.
Attire: Plan to dress according to the location you have chosen and in layers if you don’t want sun. Wear boots appropriate for being with horses, (waterproof is best). Hat, gloves, scarf and lip protection, sunscreen.
