Dear Bridge Center Family,

The Bridge Center is excited to announce several upcoming changes to our riding programs beginning Fall Session 2018. Rather than having several eight-week sessions, the Bridge Center is implementing a schedule of four longer sessions that more closely follow the school calendar. We are also extending our riding program to a Monday through Saturday schedule to better accommodate our riders. These longer sessions and our new open registration schedule allow riders to register for multiple sessions at a time and open more availability for riding times.
Registration for all riding programs opens July 15, 2018. Lesson slots are assigned on a first come, first serve basis and do not carry over from session to session. Program details, session dates, and deadlines for each session are listed below:

Seasonal Riding Program

Riders in our Seasonal Riding Program select specific sessions to ride throughout the year. Registration for all sessions opens July 15, 2018. Any Mondays not offered as session start dates are holidays.

Fall Session 2018
Our Fall Session runs from September 4, 2018 to December 22, 2018 and is a 16-week riding session. All planned absences must be submitted to the riding center by August 28, 2018 for absences to be credited.

Winter Session 2019
Our Winter Session runs from January 2, 2019 to March 30, 2019 and is a 13-week riding session. All planned absences must be submitted to the riding center by December 26, 2018 for absences to be credited.

School Year Riding Program 2018/2019
Our School Year Riding Program runs September 4, 2018 to June 15, 2019 and is a 41-week riding program. This program offers a single, one-time registration and holds your riding slot for Fall, Winter, and Spring Sessions. All planned absences must be submitted to the riding center by session deadlines to be credited.
All planned Fall Session absences must be submitted to the riding center by August 28, 2018 for absences to be credited. All planned Winter Session absences must be submitted by December 26, 2018 for absences to be credited. All planned Spring Session absences must be submitted by March 26, 2019 for absences to be credited.

This revised schedule will help us to better serve the Bridge Center community by opening more slots for availability throughout the year and simplifying the registration process.
We appreciate your continued support and look forward to seeing you at the barn soon.
