How to enroll
Click here to download (either as a Word doc or PDF) and print enrollment materials or contact our office at (218) 879-7608 to request an enrollment packet.

The physicians note is required to be handed in before a client can get on a horse. All paperwork must be handed in and lessons paid for as well. A new Dr.'s note is needed every year, even for returning riders.

Lesson fees will be refunded (or credited to another program session) only if there are medical reasons (a physician’s statement is required) or if North Country R.I.D.E. cancels a lesson. If an instructor cancels a lesson, we will try to reschedule your lesson before giving a refund unless asked.

Please call the office at (218) 879-7608 as soon as possible if you know you will miss class.
