As we are approaching the Labor Day holiday weekend, PLEASE let me know ASAP if your rider will be attending their lesson.  Our trainers would like to make their holiday plans for the September 2-4 weekend.  With summer camp and lots of summer lessons, it is very helpful for us to know the schedule ahead of time to figure out the horses days off and extra opening to accommodate all rider's schedules.  

 

All riders that hold a weekly lesson day/time are kept on the schedule continuously, unless you inform me otherwise.  Please try to give more than 24 hours notice when your rider isn't able to attend their lessons due to vacations or other conflicts.  We understand when a rider comes down with an illness at the last minute.

 

I will be filling in the fall schedule in the next week or so.  Please let me know if you rider will be continuing in their current day/time for September-December.
