Lessons are mainly based at Dairy Flat, Auckland, at her parents house, but Jaime does travel regularly to South Auckland and the Waikato. Clinics throughout New Zealand (both North and South Islands) can also be arranged by request.
Lessons cater for riders of all ages who have access to their own horses. Unfortunately, she cannot cater to riders that do not provide their own horse.
Jaime prefers that you arrive a minimum of 15 minutes before your lesson to be ready and have walked your horse to ensure that it is properly warmed up.
For payment of lessons, it is preferred that you book online here and pay in advance through our booking system. If you wish to call Jaime and book then you will need to bring cash to your lesson, she does not accept direct bank transfers. Jaime prefers payment in cash.
If you wish to cancel your lesson, Jaime asks that you please provide warning three days beforehand. You will then receive a credit for another lesson. If you cancel your lesson later than three days notice, you will not receive a refund or credit unless there are extenuating circumstances such as a lost shoe, family illness etc.
If your lesson is cancelled due to weather conditions, Jaime will make sure you receive a credit. Please note that this will be discussed and agreed between Jaime and the rider.
As a rule of thumb Jaime is happy to teach in the rain unless it is a storm or heavy rain. So lesson credits will usually not be given due to showers.
Any credit for a lesson must be used within two weeks unless negotiated with Jaime.
All clients must fill in a rider form which helps Jaime provide the best possible learning experience:
Private: $80 per lesson including GST
Group – two people: $50 per lesson including GST
Group – three people: $40 per lesson including GST
Adult rides: $30 per lesson including GST
