In order to be sure that STRC is a good fit for all involved, and to get each client scheduled in a space that would be most beneficial to them, STRC has a five-step intake process.
An instructor will chat with you about the specifics of you/your family member's needs to determine if Starlight's services would be beneficial, and if so, what program may be best.
Assessments are strategically scheduled during quiet programming hours and are conducted by one of our instructors. These appointments help us determine how we can make your experience at STRC most advantageous, and are designed to give everyone a good idea of what to expect on their first day of lessons. We introduce you to the facility, the program process, determine what type of horse is appropriate, and what level of support is needed.
An instructor will e-mail the appropriate paperwork to each client prior to the assessment. There is is a $40 assessment fee. Fees and paperwork MUST BE RETURNED PRIOR TO YOUR ASSESSMENT.
Our instructors will work with you to determine the best fit available on our schedule for your needs and walk you through the sign up process prior to leaving your assessment. Returning students have the opportunity to register at the end the sessions, and may limit the day/time options for new riders. We will do our best to find something that works!
