a late payment penalty of

R150 will take effect and be

billed with your next invoice.

• If you are unable to make

your payment by the 3rd

day of the new month after

receiving your invoice, PLEASE

contact Melindi @ 084 760

8450 in order to arrange

payment procedure BEFORE

the 3rd of each new month.

• Please remember that NO

RIDER is allowed on horseback

at CEC WITHOUT wearing a

RIDING HELMET! Please guys,

this is for your own safety and

most horse-related injuries

are head injuries. Always

better to be safe than sorry.

• Riders having Lessons at

Countryside Equestrian Centre

– Please remember that we

work on a 24 hour notice period

for Cancellation of Lessons.

It has happened a few times

where riders don’t show up for

their scheduled riding lesson

where the horse / pony has been

saddled up and is ready to work.

In these events our instructors

WILL NOT catch up the riding

lesson missed unless in the

event of an EMERGENCY. Our

24 hour notice period enables

the instructor to then book in

another student who might

have missed a lesson and

thus the instructors’ time is not

wasted as ALL our instructors

work on a commission basis

with regards to lessons given.

• Clients: Please remember if

you would like to discontinue

riding lessons or stabling at

CEC we need to receive one

CALENDER months’ notice /

payment in advance.
