I have read the “Cancellation and Refund policy” located on:  www.equinerehab.ca and agree to the terms and conditions therein. ____________** (Initial please)

If I need to cancel my attendance in the course, I will send an e-mail; however the cancellation is not binding unless I receive a reply from Sidonia. I understand and accept that the reply e-mail from Sidonia is the only acceptable form of proof that I have cancelled my attendance from the course. _____________ ** (initial please)

I understand that it is to be presumed that all courses are moving forward unless I receive notification by e-mail that a course has been cancelled. It is my responsibility to check my e-mails, including my spam folder. If I do not show up, I agree to forfeit the full course fee. ______**(initial please)

I have added:  equinerehab@xplornet.com to my address book in my e-mail file that I have indicated on this application form.

I have read, signed, dated and have witnessed my waiver/release form which is found under the ‘application forms’ button as a separate document, and have included it in this package to mail, and if it is not included I understand that I must sign and have witnessed a waiver/release if I am to participate in this course.  The date for the witness must match the date of the registrant.   __________ **(initial please)

If the registrant is under 18, two (2) waiver forms need to be signed by the parent/guardian:  the 2 page waiver and the ‘under 18 waiver’ – both are located under the application form tab.

I understand that it is highly recommended that I wear safety shoes.  Any harm that may come to me if I choose not to wear safety shoes is my sole responsibility.

I understand that as we are working with horses, there is inherent danger in working with them, along with the dangers of working on horse properties, and I take full responsibility for my actions and further agree to follow all safety protocol as outlined in the course.

If I am bringing a horse to the facility, I am solely responsible for the safety and care of the animal, notwithstanding the rental agreement with the facility. I will make prior arrangements with the facility and I will bring sufficient hay for the horse during the course to help avoid colic from a change in feed.

Sidonia McIntyre and/or The School of Equine Massage and Rehabilitation Therapies will not be held liable for any expenses incurred to me should a class be cancelled either before or within the two weeks prior to the course start date.

As a minor cannot enter into a binding contract, if a parent/guardian is required to sign for a minor, this contract will be between the parent/guardian and Sidonia McIntyre/ The School of Equine Massage and Rehabilitation Therapies.  The course is a gift to the minor and the parent/guardian will be responsible for the payment of the course and is bound by the cancellation and refund policy.

I take full responsibility for any injury I may incur during this course.

I take full responsibility for any damage I may incur to property at the facility.

end of application form- cut here – do not scan or

send any pages below.  This is information for your

course for you to keep and read

**********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

 You should have approx. 4 pages to mail or scan.  If you are missing 2 pages, it is most likely the waiver/release form.  Click on the ‘application form’ button at the top of the web site.  Directly under the application form link you will find the waiver/release link.

___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Please print the ‘course locations’ page of the course you will be attending for full directions to the facility.

Google and GPS are not 100% accurate – my directions are accurate

To locate your course, go to the ‘courses’ tab at top of the home page, scroll down to the course you are attending (massage, 6 week, or VR), then scroll over to the ‘course location” tab, then scroll down to your course location.

Please be sure to write down the date of the course. The correct dates are located on the application form, the ‘course locations’ page and the ‘course dates’ page.

My course date is: ________________________________________________

Please be at the facility on the first day of class, no later than 7:45am, so class can begin promptly at 8am. There are some locations that have a high traffic volume, so please leave early! Please do a ‘drive by’ of the facility the day before the class if possible.

Classes are from 8-5pm daily. The last day of class will be concluded by noon at the latest

It is to be presumed by all registrants that the course is moving forward. If a class is to be cancelled, you will receive notification via e-mail.

If a student is a late registrant and needs to pay for the course on the first day of class, only a money order or cash is acceptable. Registrants wishing to make an on line payment and who are also applying within the two weeks prior to the course start date must make an on line payment for the course in its entirety. You must create a PayPal account to do this or do an interac bank transfer  – I do not have an on line payment or Visa/MC available at the course.

A receipt will be issued on the last day of class along with the GST/HST #

Pack: a lunch, sunscreen, hat, steel toed foot ware (if you have it), cushion or towel for sitting upon – some people like to bring collapsible chairs. I provide plastic stools if there are no chairs provided by the facility, and they can get quite uncomfortable. Please also pack gloves in case of cold weather- the dollar store thin gloves are perfect for massaging in cold weather- thick or leather gloves are not acceptable for massage – extra clothing to be prepared for inclement weather.

Bug spray for yourself (and your horse if you are bringing your horse).

Although certainly not mandatory, it is always best to have your tetanus shot up to date as we do work in the barn – rusty nails and nips!

Everyone helps out with daily clean up of both the classroom and stalls/paddocks area. Many hands make light work! In all my years of teaching, I have always found each group to be ready and willing to lend a hand!

I do not allow video taping of the course or pictures of maneuvers , but you may bring your camera on the last day for group photos.

There is absolutely no smoking during class – this includes the new ‘smokeless cigarettes’.  You may smoke only in designated smoking areas – usually no less than 30 feet from the barn. In dry areas, smoking may only be permitted in your own vehicle. Proper disposal of butts is mandatory – no littering is permitted. Please carry gum or mouthwash as we do work in fairly close proximity to each other.

If you chew, spitting is not acceptable.  A spit cup is also unacceptable.  There is absolutely no spitting stalls as nicotine is toxic to horses and nobody spits on the floors of the barn.

My cell #, to be used in case of emergency only -this means that you cannot find the facility on the first day of class or an emergency has arisen during the class – is 1-519-562-9992 . Please put this number into your cell phone contacts.   I do not answer this phone while I am teaching. Any questions should be directed to either my e-mail (through the ‘contact’ section of the web site- this is best as the internet never sleeps and I can return e-mails at any time of day or night), or you may text my cell phone.

Hotel/Motel/Lodging is the responsibility of each student. When possible, I list hotel/motel information on the course location page. The Chamber of Commerce is an excellent resource for finding accommodations.

www.airbnb.con and www.kijiji.com are excellent resources for short term accommodations.  If you google “short term accommodations (and the city name)”, then you will have multiple sites to choose from for your accommodation needs.  Please be safe and take extra precautions when booking:   Let someone know where you will be staying – full address and contact information of you host, take a picture of the house when you arrive and text it to a family member or friend.  Try to find accommodations that will be reasonably quiet.  Indicate that you are there to work (as some people do not take students) for the week and require a peaceful and quiet environment – you will need one!

If a course location page lists contact information of the facility, then you may contact that facility to inquire if you may bring your horse. If no contact information is provided, or the facility has already indicated that it is a ‘closed herd’, then you may not bring your horse to the course.

Any arrangements to bring a horse to a course is between the registrant and the facility.

No one ever needs to bring a horse to the course as all facilities provide horses for the course.

If you have made arrangements to bring your horse to the facility, then you must bring sufficient hay for your animal to help avoid a change in feed colic. You will be sharing your horse with the rest of the group as we work in pairs during the course. You will be working on your horse for the final exam. Your animal may or may not be used every day as this is would both annoy and fatigue the animal – so be prepared to work with other horses.

Please exercise care and caution when on facility property as there are dogs, cats, horses and people. Please obey the speed limit – if one is not posted, the accepted limit is 20km/hr.

E-mail is the best way to reach me.  I check my e-mails no less than twice daily (unless I am traveling). You may send an e-mail by clicking on the ‘contact’ button of the web site, or e-mail directly to:  equinerehab@xpolornet.com.  E-mails are returned within 24-48 hours.  If you have not received a reply, please check your spam folder.

Adding equinerehab@xplornet.com to your list of contacts will help ensure that e-mails come to the inbox.

Please do not leave a message on my cell phone as service can be very poor in some areas – texting to my cell is a much better form of communication; however, e-mail is always best.
