New rider applications are only accepted between April 1 and July 1 of each year.
DUE TO COVID-19, Mitey Riders will not be evaluating new riders before December 2020. Please contact the office to discuss this year’s application process. Applications will be taken through December 1 for riding beginning in January 2021. (Updated June, 2020)
Applications must be FULLY COMPLETED to be accepted. There must be a current Doctor’s Prescription attached to the application.
We will review all applications the first week of July and either contact you to come in for an evaluation or let you know that there is not an appropriate spot available for the upcoming riding season. If you are deferred* from the upcoming season, please reapply the next year, again between April 1 and July 1, to be reconsidered.
*Please note: There are many reasons why a rider might be deferred from the program including, but not limited to: scheduling availability (we have very limited openings each year), desire to ride, seizure control, doctor and/or therapist recommendation, behavior in a social setting or availability of an appropriate horse at the time. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further explanation if your child is deferred from the program.
Please note: our waiting list is NOT first-come-first-serve. We will contact you upon receiving your application and evaluate riders for the class openings we have available at the time. Thank you for your interest in our program.
