Question Your opinion or experiences at Meredith Manor.

I'm looking at going to MM in spring 2012 or fall 2012. As of right now I'm going community college. I've been looking at this place for almost a year now, I have the catalog, have the site pretty much memorized, looked up its rating on horseschools.com, ect.

So I just want to know how your experience there was, and if it is worth bringing your own horse.

I have been riding for 12 years, but I am currently horseless, but if it is worth bringing your own horse and learning with the horse I would buy another one.

I can't tell you what it's like there - I've never been - but I can tell you that my instructor (who is far far away for a few months ) went there, loved it, and is by far the best instructor I've worked with. And I've worked with a LOT of instructors over the past 28 years that I've been riding.

I know she's dedicated, though, and will happily pick up a book on horse physiology for evening pleasure reading. So I don't know how much is the school, and how much is just her being who she is.

She had her own horse while there, but I never asked her if she felt it was advantageous.

Finally a good reply. I have been reading other threads on it and everyone makes it sounds horrible, I still want to go there but all of those things are starting scaring me into not going.

I don't know yet what it is like but can update you in a few months. My friend is leaving in two days for her first semester their. She is driving out with her parents. She was a barn manager assistant at the facility I board at. She will be updating me on everything so ask me in a month or two in a private message.

My trainer had a friend who went there many many years ago and she loved it!
Hope that helps!

Sarah, I may be wrong but I think I remember the thread talking about the place. I'd suggest to try the search here.

HalfPass that would be awesome if you could update me later on. So I will be private messaging you in a month or so.
And Kitten_Val thanks for those links. :)
