** Minor student drop off: Due to limited supervision available, we ask that a parent stay on the stable premise while student is not in a lesson. Exceptions may be made in advance with the Director, if student is safe being at the stable without supervision. If student is at the stable, we will put them to work, so they need to be willing to help the Bridges team out!
