Nancy Sterrett - Intercollegiate Dressage Association Coach Coach: Nancy Wesolek-Sterrett

Nancy, the Head of the English Department at Meredith Manor, is a 1989 Riding Master VI graduate of Meredith Manor and holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree with an Emphasis in Equestrian Studies from WVU-P. Following graduation, Nancy toured the U.S. and Canada as a rider for the Royal Lippizaner Stallion Show and owned and operated South Wind Stables providing training, clinics, lessons and summer camps.

Nancy has accumulated numerous USDF horse awards including having earned her Bronze and Silver Medals on horses she trained. Her horses have repeatedly scored in the top three places regionally. They are now competing from Training Level through Grand Prix. Nancy was selected to ride in the 2000 USDF National Dressage Symposium with Walter Zettl. Nancy has also trained both horses and riders for the North American Young Riders Competition.

The manor was the best experience I have had in life. The instructors explain everything in detail and have a theory reason for the "why" in riding. I have developed riding skills far past what I thought I would be at thanks to the great instruction at the manor. Highly recomend it!
