Can you believe it’s already time to start thinking about fall lessons?! It feels like summer has only just begun at OOF!
As usual, this fall we will be prioritizing lessons for our existing boarders, part boarders and lesson clients and then filling in with new clients depending on space, matching availability for arena time, instructors and horses.
It is our plan to create the fall schedule over the week of August 28th, so we ask that you have your registrations in to us by the 25th of August. This fall many of our instructors will be juggling their own demanding school/work/ride/medical appointment schedules, so we ask that you be as flexible as possible as we do our best to draft a schedule that will accommodate as many riders as possible while giving boarders space to ride and allowing us to maintain a personal connection with each of our students. Evenings and weekends fill up fast, so weekday/daytime availability is appreciated and will increase your chances of getting a spot.
Due to our high volume of riders PRIVATE and SEMI-PRIVATE lessons will ONLY be available on weekdays between 8AM and 2:00PM (no evenings or weekends). If you sign up for private or semi-private lessons this fall you will mostly likely be placed in a group lesson. The good news is, group lessons are more fun and riders have the important added benefit of watching and learning from others in the lesson!
Please note that it is no easy feat to build a schedule that works for up 200+ riders, so please be sure that you are truly able to commit to the times that you indicate on your registration form. Last minute adjustments are always difficult and often impossible, no matter how much we want to help you out!
Yearly Training Plans
This fall we will begin scheduling meetings with interested riders and parents, outside of lesson time, to discuss long and short term rider goals, levels of commitment, and next steps towards developing a yearly training plan for each of those riders. These sessions will be largely rider/parent led and we will be sending out questionnaires for riders and parents to bring to the sessions. More information on this to come in a later email.
