Policies, Terms & Conditions




We’ll have an exploratory conversation to determine if EFC is right for you.  Please call 902-497-8650.  If proceeding makes sense, we will need you to:

  • Complete the registration form and a pre-session questionnaire
  • Read, sign and return safety rules and ‘while on property’ documents
  • Pay a 25% non-refundable deposit at time of registration
  • Pay the balance (by cash, etransfer or cheque), no later than two weeks before the session.


Only severe weather conditions, serious illness or an unavoidable catastrophic event will lead to cancellation.

If Next Stage cancels, a full refund will be offered. 

If you cannot attend your program, your deposit will be applied to a future program of your choice. 


We are located on over 40 acres of cleared pasture land and forest.

There is plenty of parking.

We have dedicated, professional meeting space with washroom facilities.  (At this time, meeting rooms and washrooms are not wheelchair accessible.) 



The majority of activity takes place outside, so you must be able to move about on natural terrain.

If you have never been around horses, but have experienced other animal related allergies, consider preparing as you would for contact with other animals.

Weather-appropriate gear is important.  Please see the Safety Rules Sheet sent to you in advance regarding footwear and clothing.
