How can a student register for lessons?

Click here to request a student application packet. After your information is received by the instructor, you will be contacted to schedule a meeting with the instructor. The meeting will allow the instructor an opportunity to meet the student, answer any question, and gain valuable insight that will assist in pairing the student and the program horse.

During lessons, parents and caregivers stay onsite. It's important for the student to know you're watching the amazing progress that being made in the paddock. Some parents do take some time to read a book, catch up on a phone call, or just enjoy some down time. We want Jeremiah's Crossing to be a place of renewal for students, parents, and caregivers.

May I sponsor a  lesson for a student?

    Yes! You are very welcome to sponsor one of our horses.

    Ideally, each horse would have two sponsors. One sponsorship to cover feed; the other to cover routine farrier and veterinary care.

    It costs approximately $1200 to feed one of our horses for one year including: hay, grain, and supplements. 

    It also costs approximately $1200 to cover farrier and veterinary care for one horse each year including hoof care every 6-8 weeks, the annual check up, and deworming.

    You may sponsor a horse for an entire year, or part of a year. We can customize a sponsorship to meet your ideal donation. You choose your favorite horse from our list! 

    If you'd care to sponsor a particular part of horse care such as dental, supplement, or veterinary care, please contact the ranch for more information.
