Weather Cancellation Policy

Summer/Heat Index

Riding lessons are cancelled if the heat index reaches 89 degrees or higher.  

Winter/Wind Chill

Riding lessons are cancelled if the temperature reaches 15 degrees or colder, and/or if the wind chill is 0 or colder.  Road conditions are also taken into consideration.

When sessions are cancelled due to weather, we will attempt to notify everyone 2 hours before the lesson.  We will also post the information on WNDU TV Channel 16.  Riders will be credited a class for another session up to a year.  The same policy applies if 2 classes are cancelled in the same session.  If more than 2 classes are cancelled in a session the third can be credited or a refund for the third class can be issued.  It is up to the rider to inform TEC what they wish to do.
