Owning and managing a barn is a hefty chore, but I enjoy every minute of it! The best part of my job is instructing the young riders during lessons. Watching them become skilled riders and seeing their love for horses grow is very rewarding!

What is your favorite memory from MM?
What attracted me to Meredith Manor was the atmosphere and comradery of all the other students and the intense activities the program included. One of my favorite memories is of watching an instructor ride across the arena performing one tempy lead changes. It inspired me and solidified my love of horsemanship!

Meredith Manor is what every trainer in this country should be REQUIRED to attend. There is not one program that will better prepare you for a career in the industry. I have been all over the world and back riding horses and I would not have made it through 90% of it if I had not completed the entire Riding Master VI.
