Forms and Policies

Feel free to download our forms and fill them out prior to arrival!

All riders and visitors must sign a Waiver (to be signed by a parent for minors). 

Campers (only) must have a waiver and a camp registration form signed. 






Payment Policies

Your credit card number is sufficient to hold your ride or event time/date.  

Full payment is due prior to all activities.  Payment is due 2 weeks in advance for shows or other special events.  Birthday parties and other special events require full payment at the time of booking.

Our policy for shows:  Since we have reserved a show horse exclusively for your use in your classes at each show, trained, groomed and trailered the horse, and provided a trainer to be available at the show, SHOW FEES ARE NOT REFUNDABLE.

Our policy for camp:  Camp fees are not refundable, and we do not offer "make up" days.  if you have special circumstances, feel free to discuss it with us.

Our policy for lessons:  for premium times (weekend mornings, or weekday afternoons), student must be on a package, or have a $55   deposit with our office.  WE HAVE A 24 HOUR CANCELLATION POLICY!  No-shows will be charged full price, and make ups are not available.  If lessons cancel due to extreme weather, there will be no charge, and a make up will be offered.  Light rain does not constitute extreme weather, and lessons can still take place on the ground or in the barn--there is always something to learn!  Please arrive 15 to 30 minutes prior to your lesson time in order to prepare.  Lessons are 1 hour and are scheduled accordingly--late arrivals will have a shortened lesson time so our schedule can stay on track and run smoothly for everyone.  Lesson packages are not refundable, but any unused lessons will be good for one year from the date of the last lesson used.

Rider requirements:

  • For Trail Rides off property, riders must be at least 7 years of age, unless the rider has prior equestrian experience--young or timid riders may be ponied at the Trailmaster's discretion.
  • Riders who remain on property for lessons, camp, or birthday parties must be at least 4 years of age.
  • Riders may not weigh over 240 lbs.
  • Riders should be attired in long pants and closed-toed shoes.
  • ALL RIDERS MUST WEAR AN APPROVED HELMET--we have many helmets available for your use free of charge.

General Policies:


Jupiter Equestrian Center does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or age in its programs and activities.
 
Our prices reflect the upscale and unique nature of the services we provide.  It is expensive and labor intensive to feed and maintain horses, trailers and trucks in South Florida. We offer you with a top-notch riding experience, and we are proud of the services we provide!
 
Riding may be scheduled in the morning or the afternoon. You must call ahead to schedule and/or inquire about availability. The earlier you call to secure your ride time and date, the better, as our program is very popular! 

We are available for riding programs every day, including all major holidays, EXCEPT MONDAYS (during camp weeks, our day off changes to Sunday.  Some Sundays we will be away at horse shows, so book early and call ahead for availability). 

Our horses deserve a day of rest, and we do too!  However, you may call ahead to see if a trail ride can be made available on an off day--if we have horses who are rested and fresh, we may be able to book your ride.


Late arrivals, late cancels and no shows will be charged full price, and the cost is non-refundable and non-transferable to a rescheduled time. This includes last-minute decisions not to ride.

Your telephone call is important!  If we cannot immediately answer your call, please leave a brief message with your name/phone number and we will return your call as quickly as possible.

Disclaimer

This is a "ride at your own risk" activity.  You are required to sign a liability waiver before mounting up.  Those in your party who are not riding but who are spending time in the barn and around animals, must also have a signed waiver on file.  We have done everything within our power to ensure your safety (all tack is in good working order, horses are trained and experienced, helmets are provided), however, we cannot control or guarantee your riding ability, acts of Mother Nature, the natural unpredictability of equines, or the weather.  Florida is a "no liability" state, meaning that an equestrian professional cannot be held liable for any injuries sustained while taking part in an equestrian activity.  The Florida Statute reads specifically as follows:

Florida Equine Activity Statute
TITLE XLV TORTS
CHAPTER 773 EQUINE ACTIVITIES
773.01 Definitions.

As used in §§ 773.01-773.05:

Under Florida law, an equine activity sponsor or equine professional is not liable for an injury to, or the death of, a participant in equine activities resulting from the inherent risks of equine activities.
