FAQs

We know that sometimes you have questions that you may have forgotten to ask when you spoke to someone on the phone. Here are a few of the FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS that we get.

 

 

Therapy

Do you do hippotherapy/riding therapy?

We do not offer any form of riding therapy. We currently do not have the facility or the staff to support these programs. Our therapy is 100% on the ground working with the horse as a tool to help in a talk therapy session.

What types of people do you treat?

We accept clients with Emotional, Personality, and Psychological Disorders such as Bipolar, Borderline, Anxiety, Depression, Anorexia, Bulimia, etc.

Do you accept Insurance?

Yes, we accept all forms of Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield Insurance.

What is the age of clients you serve?

At this time we serve clients 12 and older.

At my first session, will I get to have the horse as part of the session?

In your first session at Red Skye you will do an in office session so that we can evaluate the challenges you are dealing with and make sure to pair you with a horse which will help you the most.


Horseback Riding

Do you offer trail rides?

No, we do not offer trail rides at this time.

I know how to ride, can I rent a horse/ ride on my own?

Red Skye offers private 30 minute lessons with an instructor. We do not offer times for people to free ride or  hack horses on their own.

If I buy multiple lessons, do they expire?

Our lessons do not expire until One year after purchase.

Do I need to keep the same lesson time every week?

No, you do not. We understand that people have other things to do, so we try to be as flexible as possible. While it is easier for scheduling on both ends to keep the same lesson time every week, there are many clients who call or email at the beginning of the week to see what times are available on a given day when their schedule allows. For example, you can ride saturday, then thursday of the next week, then friday of the next week. See our Cancellation Policy.

Do you offer group lessons?

At this time we do not offer group lessons. We believe that having undivided attention is very important in learning the fundamental skills of riding.

Do you offer boarding?

With only 4 stalls, the barn is full of horses that are being used in our program. We do not offer boarding.

What should I wear to my first lesson?

At your first lesson, you should wear long pants (leggings or jeans) and boots with a heel (work boot, cowboy boot, rain boot, etc). Everyone needs to ride with a helmet but we have helmets for new riders to borrow if they do not have one of their own. Helmets from other sports are not acceptable for riding.

 

We hope that these answers are helpful to you. If you still have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
