Michelle Wellman, a student at Meredith Manor equine school

Since childhood I have always loved horses and wanted one of my very own! As I got older, I realized that my dream was to work with horses. When I started looking for a college to attend Meredith Manor was a dream come true - a place to ride and learn all about horses.

Meredith Manor stables a wide variety of horses enabling its students to be challenged every day. My riding and handling skills improved rapidly under the guidance of the excellent staff. Soon I had overcome my fear of the larger more difficult horses. I would have never imaged receiving the Outstanding Rider Award. My dream has become a reality.


When I left the Manor I had accumulated almost 2000 hours in the saddle under some of the finest instructors in the world. I was a new person, full of the confidence that comes with realizing a dream. I now have a solid foundation to continue on my own, to set new goals and realize new dreams.
