READ CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND THIS*:

READ CAREFULLY AND UNDERSTAND THIS PRIOR TO ACCEPTING TERMS:

If you cancel outside of 14 days of your school date, you will receive a credit or refund for the amount paid minus $20 or you may receive a full credit towards another school, space permitting. If you cancel within 14 days of your school date, you will receive credit towards another school, space permitting, except no credits or refunds if you cancel within 7 days. The policy will apply to each individual school, not multi-day events or multiple registrations.

*If you received a discount as a frequent rider, due to the significant savings, the policy varies based on which frequent rider program discount is applied to your purchase; see your specific discount package on the registration package.

PLATINUM RIDER PASS: Due to the significant savings, there are no refunds or credits should you cancel or forego any date. If we cancel one ARS for any reason, we will attempt to schedule a make-up date, if not, it will not be credited; if we cancel more than one, $75 credit will be issued for 2025 for any other cancelled events if we don't offer a new make-up date.  Restrictions - Excludes any private or special events or newly added ARS dates.

GOLD, SILVER & BRONZE RIDER: Cancellation Policy - Due to the significant savings, there are no refunds or credits, however you may reschedule your events within 2024, except you may not reschedule within 7 days of your event. 

To begin the refund/credit request process, you need to contact us first by mail or email. If you don't receive a response, it has not been received nor documented.

The convenience fee is non-refundable, even if you cancel.

ZARS reserves the right to revoke your privilege to ride during a school without a refund or credit for riding in such a manner that endangers life or limb of yourself, other riders, guests, staff, and instructors or control riders.

Registrations are not transferrable to anyone.

To be fair and consistent, there are ZERO EXCEPTIONS to all above.

Rain or Shine or Cancellation:
Schools are held in the rain. Schools are subject to being delayed or canceled due to heavy rain or severe weather or lack of registrants. If a school is canceled for rain or severe weather, it will be rescheduled and your paid fee will be applied to the newly scheduled date or a credit toward another date. The same policies will then apply.
