PROGRAM TUITION RATES
Why tuition? Tuition helps to defray the cost of operating expenses. Due to the need to schedule staff and interns, and to properly utilize our horses, no lesson missed or cancelled by a participant can be made up nor shall the participant be entitled to a refund. Make-up lessons will be offered by participant cancelling due to a medical condition or sickness, which prevents the rider from participating in a lesson or session.
***All lessons, whether group or private, are to be determined at trainer’s discretion, based on students skill level and month-to-month needs.

Why lease? Many newcomers to the horse world may be surprised to learn that you could lease a horse the same way that you would a car. Instead of purchasing a horse outright, you pay the horse’s owner an agreed upon fee per month or per year for access to the horse. Here at Selah East, we offer two types of horse leases: a full lease and a half lease.
Depending on where your child is on their journey as a rider, the horse you need for their current skill level will be different than the horse you may need in a year or two. Not only will your child’s skills grow but so will their bodies! The 13hh pony that’s perfect for them now won’t be a good match when your child is taller and heavier. Leasing a horse lets you find a mount that’s a good match for you now and alleviates the burden of needing to sell a horse once you’ve outgrown it and need something bigger or more advanced. A great horse is hard to find, so when people find them they understandably want to keep them and make sure that the horse is always taken care of. This is where the lease comes in. While an owner or trainer may not want to sell their unicorn of a horse, they are often open to leasing them to the right person. This way they retain control of the valued animal and can ensure they’re in the hands of a caring & suitable person
