Renee Goes to Horse Training School

Renee Segree at Meredith Manor Horse Training School

My name is Renee Segree. I am from Montego Bay, Jamaica. When I was sixteen, just out of high school, I decided to go to a horse training school and chose Meredith Manor. Though I had the option to excel academically, it just was not my passion. All I wanted was to pursue my love for riding and take it to a higher level, it is how I get the most satisfaction and peace of mind.

I am currently on my way to fulfilling my dream. I am a dressage major in my Riding Master III, with my emphasis on training and enjoying every minute of it. I have gotten nothing but support from my family and friends here.

After I leave school I would like to have a career training, teaching, and competing in the U. S. for some time. Eventually I would like to have my own business offering public lessons and trail riding back home as my retirement.

Update: Following graduation, Renee moved to Georgia to run a large lesson program of over 50 students at a hunter barn. Her students enjoyed championships in the hunter, jumper, eventing, and dressage show rings. She now has her own successful training and teaching business called Hoofbeatz and is the resident trainer at Saddlebrook Farm in Thomson, Georgia.

With training in Sports Psychology and an in depth understanding of teaching, Renee is able to bring a rider up the levels with confidence. Utmost importance is placed on building from solid basics while maintaining motivation and confidence. She has trained many young horses as well as re-trained many that needed a fresh start. She instills confidence and athleticism in her horses with a strong knowledge of horse psychology and proper training technique.

So many things have happened with my riding and career that I would never have been able to accomplish had it not been for this school. Thank you Meredith Manor, I love you all.
