Frequently Asked Questions

What type of rider does best in the KnP program? – Anyone who wants to stop managing and start enjoying their horses and who is willing to put in the time and work is a great fit for KnP. We work on your schedule, on your goals. Our goal is to give you the knowledge, confidence, and common sense know how to achieve your horsemanship dreams.

What is the main riding focus of KnP? – We are primarily known for helping horse owners put a solid all around training foundation on their horses. We specialize in Western Dressage, Trail, and Competitive Trail.

What if I would like help but can’t do regular lessons? – At KnP we work around your schedule. Whether it is once a year or once a week we are dedicated to helping you as much as possible every time we meet.

What can I expect when I attend a KnP clinic? – Every clinic (even if you’ve attended the same one in the past) is uniquely tailored to those who attend. We strive to present new ideas, patterns, and exercises at each event. Our clinics while intense (with information) are small, fun, and laid back with a friendly/family feel. Riders almost always walk away with new friends. With 3 instructors our riders are able to keep the clinic moving while being able to offer lots of personalized/solo attention.

What is the KnP clinic registration policy? – Clinic spaces are always limited and first come first serve. Full payment or partial deposit is required to hold your space in a clinic. At our discretion and on limited and individual basis we may accept a verbal/written intent to attend. If we accept your verbal/written intent and you do not attend full payment will be required to hold your space in all future clinics.

What is the KnP clinic refund policy? – Full Refunds will only be issued if a clinic is canceled due to weather (or for some other reason by KnP) and you are unable to attend the make up date. A partial refund or credit towards a future clinic/lesson may be issued in special circumstances if you are unable to attend, but this is not to be expected. All credits expire 1 year from date of issue.
