oh ok, i recieved an offer last year, but i deferred. So will i recieve another offer in Jan?
Thats alright then, i was thinking i'd have to cough up the $1300 or whatever it is almost as soon as i applied!

As for NEGS, I havnt ridden much with those instructors. I've been told they're good, Sarah's got a dressage book published and Gina almost made it onto the Aussie olympic eventing team at one stage. I did have a couple of group XC lessons with her about 2 years ago. From what i can remember she taught well.
As for the horses, i dont know any of them anymore. When they got the new instructors in they got rid of alot of the schoolies and got new ones (i presume better ones..)
I think they have cheaper lessons if you use one of they're lower level instructors (no idea what they're like..)

I guess the only way to find out is to try it! If i were to start lessons again i'd probably go there. I know what you mean about the price though! I used to get an hour private lesson for $40!

To accept your deferrment did you have to re-apply through UAC? Or re-apply through something? Once you officially "accept" your offer for this year they can offer you accommodation. I know you want to leave it late but you might not get a spot in the more popular colleges and end up somewhere like Robb.

Call up the colleges and get someone to take you on a tour through them all. Get a feel feel for them. If you go during term time you can get a feel for the people who go there as well. Remember that the colleges can be pretty mean at the start of the year. People had to run around ovals at 5am and drink until they throw up, carry around eggs or old toast. Some guy had to carry around a lounge arm for a week. So you want to make sure its worth it - so make sure you pick one you really like.

Is there much agistment in Armidale? I googled it but there wasn't really many agistment centres, except for NEGS and Moolabulla, and I don't know what the second one is. Sorry to ask all these Armidale questions - but you are the only Armidale horse person I know.

I have no idea, was so long ago ive forgotten. I really need to call them and find out hey! haha

I have no idea about any agistment, other than negs. Ive never heard of Moolabulla..
You can lease a paddock here or there sometimes, we always have a couple of horses in paddocks we lease. Im not sure if thats what your looking for though? In the newspapers you can sometimes find ads for paddocks and stuff. But there wouldnt be much around that offer any services/facilities..
