Trainers/Instructors at the Bucks County Horse Park 

Trainers/Instructors

The Bucks County Horse Park welcomes instructors and their students. The Park encourages an appropriate, safe teaching and training environment. We ask your support in keeping the grounds and equipment in good condition for all. Please do not use the cross country jumps when the footing is questionable. Also please do not dismantle jumps in a ring or leave rings untidy. There are times when certain parts of the Park will not be available for use. Ring and course closures are posted on the website, Facebook page, and outgoing Voicemail. If you are uncertain, please verify ring and course availability with the office prior to use.

The Park requires that all trainers/instructors using the Park have a copy of their instructional insurance on file with the Park. We are pleased to welcome the trainers listed below to the Bucks County Horse Park.

Please be aware that any instruction to a rider, constitutes teaching/instruction and requires insurance coverage. This is for your protection as well as the Park’s. Although seemingly helpful as it can be to tell someone how to get a stubborn horse over a fence or correct a rider’s position, if this person injures themselves as a results of your helpful advice, you can become involved in litigation. Therefore, the Park will frequently be requesting proof of insurance whenever instruction is observed. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Additional Information

Management would like to request that if you are using a ring that has been setup for a show that you please replace fences and fillers as you found them. Thank you for your support.

If you are a visiting instructor to the Park, we ask that all of your students fill out a Day Pass (PDF), sign the release of liability and include payment BEFORE they ride. If you are unmounted while instructing we do not require a Day Pass but ask you to sign a release of liability (PDF) and leave a copy of your insurance in the lock box at the front Gate House BEFORE your lessons start.
