Student Comments about the UPHA Open Gate Learning Center

The First UPHA Open Gate Learning Center at the 2014 UPHA American Royal National Championship Horse Show was very successful. Eighteen students participated in the program that was over seen by UPHA tutor Debra Murphy.

The students put in more than 80 hours of study time!!!!

A Very Special Thank You to the Sponsors of the UPHA Open Gate Learning Center:
