Heads-up from the herd!
Beginning June 15, 2014, we are moving to a new session-based schedule that divides the year-long program into 4 sessions: three 12-week sessions and one 10-week session. We are very excited about this new schedule because it enables us to make a number of improvements to the program, benefiting our riders, staff, horses, and volunteers.We know that riders and their families (along with our hardworking team of volunteers!) will have questions about what this change in the schedule means. Here are some key highlights for folks to know:
* Riders will continue to have lessons the same way that they currently do, except there will be an extra week of vacation between the Winter and Spring Sessions and between the Summer and Fall Sessions.
* A rider will automatically be registered for the same slot in the next session unless we receive 30 days’ notice of their intent not to ride in the next session.
* The cost of lessons will not change — lessons will still be billed at the rate of $40 per lesson.
* The billing schedule will not change — they will still be sent out on a monthly basis. The new schedule will go into effect starting with the Summer Session of 2014. The remainder of the year will be scheduled as follows:
Pegasus closed: Sunday, June 15 – Saturday, June 28, 2014
Summer Session: Sunday, June 29 – Saturday, September 20, 2014
Pegasus closed: Sunday, September 21 – Saturday, September 27, 2014
Fall Session: Sunday, September 28 – Saturday, December 20, 2014
Pegasus closed: Sunday, December 21, 2014 – Saturday, January 3, 2015
We are providing a letter to each rider explaining the new schedule. There will be information provided to our volunteers about these changes too. Look for additional information to be posted in our lobby area and the barn areas as well. We will also be offering Q&A opportunities at Pegasus for families to ask questions. You can also find information on our FAQ page, where we have a new tab devoted entirely to questions you may have about the session-based schedule. On our Calendar page, you can find a complete color-coded calendar for the new schedule, which covers June 2014 through June 2015.If you have any additional questions, please feel free to contact Barbara Wertheimeer by email at Pegasus5@comcast.net or by phone at 215-742-1500, Monday-Thursday, 9:00 AM-6:00 PM.
