DeMayo’s Bonnie Lea Farm 2012
Summer Horse Program
Bonnie Lea Farm is now offering summer lesson packages. Ten prepaid, group lessons for $350 or $45 per lesson for students, ages 8 and up. More details on lesson prices are available on the lesson page.
Group or birtdhday pony rides are available. Please call for details. Half-day and full day sessions for the summer are no longer available.
Safety is the first priority and students will not be allowed to ride without helmets and proper gear. Although helmets will be provided, participants are encouraged to bring their own. (Please feel free to contact us with questions regarding the purchase of a helmet.) Boots with a small heel are required. Students need long pants for riding. Long hair should be tied back and no jewelry should be worn. The number of students per lesson is limited.
At BLF, our barn culture is based on two simple principles; safety and respect. Safety is critical in a farm setting and when working with horses and other people. Respect for self, other people, animals, equipment and our environment makes BLF a fun and safe place to be with friends, both human and animal. We are looking forward to having you join us.
Here is some information you will want to know before you arrive.
Drop Off/Pick Up:
• Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your first lesson and use the barn driveway and parking area.
• Please drive slowly, watching for kids and animals.
• If you have not submitted a release, a parent or guardian will need to complete a release form the first day of your arrival.
• For safety reasons, friends and family may not go into barns, fields or paddocks.
Clothing and Gear:
• Please wear jeans or riding breeches for riding. Shorts are not allowed while riding.
• If you have a riding helmet, please bring it with you and be sure to write your name inside.
• Please wear boots or shoes with a heel. Socks prevent blisters. ABSOLUTELY NO FLIP FLOPS OR CROCKS, as serious injuries can result if you were to get stepped on.
• No loose fitting clothing such as scarves, bell-bottom jeans, pajama bottoms or spaghetti strapped tops.. All of these items can get caught when you are riding.
• Large earrings, or facial piercing can even get caught in horses’ tails as they “swish “. Please leave these items at home.
• You can wear shorts under your jeans or bring them on hot days for after you have ridden.
• A backpack or bag will be helpful for transporting all of your gear and snacks. Please be sure to use the trash and recycling bins appropriately.
• Of course you will want your name on all of your belongings, including clothing.
Snacks & Drinks and Trash:
• Please bring water bottles that are refillable. If you bring other drinks we ask that you help recycle and not put them into the trash.
• Bring healthy snacks or lunch as appropriate. Riders, like other athletes get hungry and thirsty.
• Please re-use bags or lunch boxes when possible.
• Please do not litter. Not only is this bad for the environment, but it is dangerous to animals.
• Be sure you have sunscreen and
• Bring a hat.
We hope these tips will help you prepare for your arrival. Please let us know if you have any questions in the meantime. See you soon!
