Ask the Students: Can Someone Attend Meredith Manor with Limited Riding Experience?

by Samantha Capoferri-Fellin
Instructor, Meredith Manor International Equestrian Centre

This Ask the Students question comes from Autumn Marie Morris:

ďDo any students go into Meredith Manor with little riding knowledge or experience?Ē

Student responses include:

  • "I actually think it was beneficial for me because I didnít come in with any bad habits that I needed to change and the instructors really worked with your level of experience and helped you progress."
  • "I donít feel Iíve learned any slower than other students that came in with horse experience, I just didnít have any preconceptions that I might have to change."
  • "I donít feel like not having any experience hindered me in any way, it kind of left things as a blank slate for the instructors to be able to fill in, and thereís less for them to have to fix."

If you have questions for our students, post them on the Meredith Manor Facebook page and we'll do our best to get them answered!

Meredith Manor is an equestrian career college dedicated to preparing students for hands-on, equestrian careers as trainers, instructors, equine massage therapists, stable managers, farriers and more. If you want a career with horses and are considering attending Meredith Manor, request an information packet to learn more.

I will always treasure the experience and education I received at Meredith Manor. To pass that along to students and horses has always been very rewarding, and I know it always will be as I watch former students pass this along to their students.
