    I have been reading and it seams that after the 90s the school went downhill to the point that people are NOT employing MM graduates. Sooo looks like I'm looking elsewhere.

    Is there a specific reason as to why you would want to go to MM? There are a few other good equine colleges that you could look into.

    I think the reason people are so intrigued by MM is because it is mainly a trade school. You spend a majority of your time and studies hands on or in the saddle rather than in a traditional school environment.

    That's the exact reason I chose MM over TAMU and Findlay..I think I'd have been much happier at either of those as opposed to MM, and I do regret my decision.

    The only way I plan to go back to MM is for the farrier short course to finish learning that since I missed out on shoeing and only learned how to trim. The only time I enjoyed there (actual classes, drinking was fun too, lol) was my farrier classes.

    I would look into Colorado State as you suggested earlier. I'm partial because it's the school I attend. It's a great program and I've really enjoyed it. Plus they're breaking ground soon to do a revamp of the facility and adding two more indoor arenas. Hopefully it would be done while you were here.

    For $18000 one can become a John Lyons certified instructor.

    I don't have 18000 I can spend. Im at the mercy of student loans and FASFA. Im thinking Colorado because its not to far from home. Another thing is I am not to interested in academics. If im going to do academics Ill become a biologist. But Id rather be able to work with the horses then look at them through lab equipment lol.

    Thank you everyone for your insight :)
    And yea I do not agree with horses being in stalls 24/7, and only having 5mins to warm ur horse up for a lesson... But from what I've seen of photos and videos I really like their methods of teaching both for you and the horse. I would also like to base my horse career around bareback & bridleless reining, and I think the reining program would give me a start on that. I am also interested teaching both horses and people, and extremely interested in massage therapy stuff. I am near the University of Guelph, but not only am I not eligible for university, I am not nearly as interested in the things they teach there. I am also much much better at learning hands on. So to me MM sounds right up my alley. Also in comparison to other places it is not nearly as far away from home

    I can say MM had some issues that didn't really thrill me, but I dang sure learned to ride, and what I learned has kept me in the saddle more than once. If you do decide to go to MM, just do be ready to learn to ride, because they are serious about it. No they don't have a lot of "turn out" time, but once you are able to handle those rides, you will be able to ride anything. So, lack of turn out can actually be a benefit to you as a rider.

    If you do a search on some other popular horse forums the topic has been discussed quite extensively and is very interesting. I agree, it seems like in the past was a good school but lately has seemed to really go downhill.

    If you want to do the horse thing I wouldn't recommend it, just based on what I've read and heard.
