They feed cracked corn.
The dorms are converted buses or shipping crates, or tiny actual dorms (I heard half of them just flooded with 4" of water too).
The food isn't bad, it's not the grestest either though. Definitely better than my high school food though.
I was there for 2 months and drank everyday before I dropped out. I'm not a bigger drinker, nor can I legally, so that should say something.
I think they changed from when Copperhead and Draft lover went to when I got there (last year).
I honestly felt that it was a slave camp. I understand having to clean stalls, feed, etc..But it was too much sometimes. I don't mind cleaning a stall, but I'm not going to take an hour to do it perfectly, their way. I have no problem feeding..but I won't have to wheel the hay every morning and kill my back.
I LOVED my farrier class, but that was just about all I enjoyed while I was there.
I was able to deal with the workload, but the people I couldn't deal with. I have NEVER seen so many people with such an ego and attitude. I didn't like the fact that heaven forbid I hit a horse if it bites or kicks at me. I use their "heading" technique (which isn't new), but if I have to grab the lead and shank a few times, I don't want yelled at for it.
The crates are actually pretty nice..but they just aren't big enough for two people. ESPECIALLY when they don't get along. My roommate was absolutely insane, and I could never get away with her if I wasn't out at the bar or somewhere else (usually drinking to get my mind off being miserable emotionally).
I can't say too much about the riding classes, because I was only in those for three days before I switched out to a science master. What I did get with my six lessons was that you better hope your assigned horses are in close barns or your classes are more than an hour apart. I was late to each of my second classes because I'd be given a barn on one side of campus, and then a horse in a barn on the opposite side. It takes me 5-8mins to saddle a horse up..even with boots or polos. It took me atleast a half hour with the horses I was assigned. And you were suppose to take a half hour to cool your horse down and curry/spray them off.
And if your horse is in a training class, better hope you don't want to ride it, because you won't be allowed. Can't ride alone, can't ride on weekends, etc. I find that ridiculous.
But anywho..I didn't like it.
