Signing Up and Paying for Lessons

Emails sent out to members weekly to sign up for lessons the following week. Signing up for lessons is done by return email. Spaces are allocated on a first come, first served basis with a cut-off at midnight on Saturday.

A confirmation email will be sent out to let you know who is riding at what time; once you have received this email please pay for your lesson.

The best way to pay for lessons is by online transfer. Please pay for each lesson separately before the day of the lesson.

With the exception of drivers of their own cars. Drivers please pay as soon as possible after the lesson, deducting £2.00 for each person travelling in the car from the full lesson price. (Springhill riders please pay the full £17 and collect £2 cash from each of your passengers.

In order for us to be able to identify your payment, use the following format for the ‘payment reference*’:
First your CRSID (this is the part of your email address before the @cam.ac.uk), then the 3 letter code for the stables (SPR for Springhill Stables and HIL for Hill Top Equestrian Centre (Yelling)). Finally the date of you lesson in the format DD/MM/YY

For example, if Tamsin has a lesson at Springhill on the 5th Oct, the reference is:
TAS46 SPR 05/10/11

And if Steph is riding the next day at Hill Top:
SKWN2 HIL 06/10/11

*When making a payment using online banking, your bank will give you a space to include a description of the payment/message, often called the reference. It must be amended for each new payment. Unfortunately with most banks, this means the payee details cannot be saved and re-used.

The club account details are sent out in the weekly email.

If you are unable to make online payments, you can pay by cheque. Please make them out to CU Riding Club, write the appropriate payment reference on the back and leave them in an envelope in the treasurer’s pigeonhole.
