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.


I graduated in 2000 and have had incredible success in the professional world due to the skills I've learned through MM. MM showed me the way to become part of a program and learn how to see an overall picture not just its parts.
