The preferred method is to process payment from your debit/credit card giving the mutual advantage of a recurring payment plan.  Your card details can be used again to pay the balance of your lesson(s) if applicable.  Current riding school customers who have opted to pay by electronic funds transfer can pay their advance payment using this method.
