My trainer has mentioned Meredith Manor, but I don't remember exactly why. I want to say she wanted to get certification as a professional riding trainer. Wasn't anything negative though.

meredith manor

Yes it is in west virginia and is a school to train hore people they do have a very good program or at least did have a good one. I have hired 2 different trainers and instructors that were at the time resent graduates of the school and both ladies were excellent instructors and were good trainers but just needed experience the first lady worked for my stables for well over 2 yrs then was hired by a very large arabian stable in florida to instruct and train there . I must admit I missed her at my barn she was great with the horses and even better with the people she gave lessions to

Meredith Manor facts: Been there, done that for 5 months, got straight A's, BIGGEST WASTE OF MONEY EVER...They have "gotcha" clauses in the contract to get more money out of you if you withdraw at any time sooner than your full program sign up. They feed seed corn (ask your vet what he thinks about that insanity, they do it because it is cheap), house students in converted steel, ocean shipping crates, 3 ratty old school buses where you have to bend down to walk around in, and the deluxe "converted" barn stalls where the gap under the doorways are large enough for rats, snakes, bugs of all kinds, etc. One bathroom had so much black mold on it that they closed it down...only after students complained REPEATEDLY and finally threatened to call the health department...Lot's of drinking and pot, no dorm supervision to speak of. Read the posts of others who have gone there over the years...I know of top young western riders who have taken national titles who got way messed up there both on technique and their backs... If this sounds too negative, just go see for yourself: Questions to ask: What do you feed the horses? What is your financial policy if you withdraw mid-program? Etc. Get other good questions to ask from people who've been there. Once you see the place you'll say NO WAY!!!

I've heard it's a dump, honestly.

OMG, that's so weird. Someone responded to an old posting I made about lessons, and a gal responded recently saying she was a graduate from there.

How long have these "dorms" been around?

I thought about going there...

I would have had to live on campus and I refuse to live in a bus or shipping crate when I am paying them that amount of money.

When I was looking they were not accredited so that was a big downfall for me.

The entire 'campus' looks like it is falling down and needs to meet a bulldozer.

I am sure there are good riders and instructors that come from it, and I like the idea of it but I think it's a waste of money. I would rather find a good working student program because I feel you get the same end result.

Crates: Crates

Regular dorms: The Dorm
