Weather Policy

Bearcat Therapeutic Riding does not cancel for inclement weather unless it is dangerous to drive (i.e. ice, snow, sleet, tornado, high winds).

In case of rain, riders will participate in unmounted horsemanship classes. Topics include, but are not limited to: learning how to groom, bathe and tack a horse; instruction in horse nutrition (including making horse treats); hoof and dental care; basic horse first aid; and introduction to horse body parts, colors and breeds. As in the mounted riding lessons, skills and concepts are taught using hands-on practice, as well as games and activities.
