RHPC meetings are generally scheduled for the 1st and 3rd Saturdays from September to June, usually at about 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. At each meeting, there is typically a dismounted classroom lesson, a mounted lesson, barn chores that all kids participate in, and a nutritious snack that parents supply on a rotating basis. Older, more experienced, members are expected to help instruct younger members. Members ride in mounted lessons for approximately 1 hour in groups organized by horse availability or skill level. Members must prepare to ride approximately half an hour before their assigned riding time and be ready for a safety check.
