Attendance and Evaluation
Students are expected to attend every class session of the courses in which they are enrolled. Instructors are required to keep records of student attendance. Each absence impacts a student’s grade, either directly or indirectly. Students are ordinarily expected to make up any work missed as a result of an absence.
Riders will attend 1 class session 10:00am – 11:00am and 1 riding session 11:30am - 12:30pm each week on the same day. Each week there will be a homework assignment based on the classroom session to be evaluated the following week. At the end of the 9 week course there will be a mounted assessment and grades given on completion of classroom work. Each level takes 18 weeks to complete and you must complete all previous levels before moving on to the next.
