The American Morgan Horse Association has announced that it has once again partnered with the United Professional Horsemen’s Association (UPHA) and the Grand National & World Championship Morgan Horse Show to offer the Open Gate Learning Center. The Open Gate Learning Center is an on-site study and learning center for young equestrians who are competing at the horse show, which will take place in Oklahoma City October 12-19, 2019.
The purpose of the Learning Center is to provide academic support to young exhibitors, grades 5-12, who are away from their local schools. The center will be available to students from Oct. 12-19. Participants can stay abreast of their academic requirements by providing a structured learning environment. The center is supervised by a professional teacher who can provide academic support for students and the center will work with teachers from the student’s school to help guide activities while away from school and to monitor tests, if needed. Assignments can be posted, faxed, or e-mailed from the center to meet deadlines.
The fee for each student is $200. Please call Kristen Kelly at the AMHA office (802) 985-4944, Ext. 401 to provide a credit card number for this fee and reserve your child’s spot. The center can accommodate a maximum of 25 students and will be taken on a first come, first served basis.
Once the reservation officially has been made and the appropriate fee has been paid, you will receive an e-mail notice providing you the link to enter your child’s details for the center’s coordinator. (She will work with you and the schools directly once the reservation has been properly made.)
Note: A limited number of seats will be available to college students needing only the work space and WiFi access without tutoring assistance of any kind. Contact AMHA for further details.
