Learning Center for Students at the 2016 Grand National

AMHA is pleased to announce it has partnered with the United Professional Horsemen's Association (UPHA) to offer the Open Gate Learning Center at the 2016 Morgan Grand National. The Open Gate Learning Center is an on-site study and learning center for young equestrians who are competing at the Grand National & World Championship Morgan Horse Show®, which will take place in Oklahoma City, October 8-15.

The purpose of the Learning Center is to provide academic support to young riders, grades 5-12, who are away from their local schools. The center will be available to students from Sunday, October 9 to Saturday October 15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. 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 emailed form the center to meet deadlines. 

Students interested in participating are asked to complete an application and submit $100 fee. (The AMHA Epperson Youth Trust is underwriting the cost of hosting the center and subsidizing $100 of the application fee per student). The center can accommodate a maximum of 20 students.
