Handicapped persons interested in discussing their qualifications and the feasibility of attending Meredith Manor should contact the Director, who is designated to coordinate our compliance with all requirements of law prohibiting unlawful discrimination.

Originally I wanted to go to a university, but Meredith Manor had the most one-on-one time with instructors not to mention that you got to spend your whole day with horses. It sounded like my kind of school!
