In order for the lesson schedule to work efficiently, the following attendance policy must be followed

  • A parent or legal guardian must be present during the participant’s lesson at all times
  • Please plan to arrive at least 5 minutes before class time
  • It is the responsibility of the participant/caregiver to notify the instructor prior to the day of the lesson if they will be absent.  Our volunteers commit their time to lessons; our goal is to be respectful of their schedules and notify them at least 24 hrs in advance to changes in the schedule
  • Our team of volunteers will wait 15 minutes in case a participant arrives late for the lesson.  If arrival is later than 15 minutes, the lesson will be considered cancelled; no make up will be provided
  • If a lesson must be cancelled by Purple Pony, you will be notified at minimum one hour ahead of class time. A make up lesson will be arranged
  • If a rider has a scheduled absence a make-up lesson will be offered if an opening is available at another regulary scheduled lesson time. No refunds.


Purple Pony uses both indoor and outdoor riding arenas. Lessons will be held rain or shine. If Purple Pony must cancel a lesson a makeup will be arranged. There are no refunds or for any other absences.
