Three ways you can participate (or combine all three!):

Students can earn their .2 units of Physical Education credits each term by participating in riding or vaulting lessons. Students will be expected to lesson 7 times with in term. Cedar Lodge has some capacity to work around schedule conflicts and weather concerns with notice. Extra weekly lessons or practice rides are possible.
