Gnu Arena

Jumping class in Gnu Arena

Gnu arena is where most of our jumping classes are held. Its large viewing booth and bleacher seating make it a wonderful place for visitors to watch a riding class.

Students in the Jumping major learn the mechanics of jumping as they relate to hunters, jumpers and event horses. The development of a balanced, effective seat in the rider is emphasized. The student develops the ability to pace, estimate distances, determine effective lines for jumping and analyze courses.

Continuing our tour, we will be moving to the farrier shop where all horses on campus go to be trimmed or shod.

Coming to the Manor has changed my life. I have learned so much and now feel comfortable to enter the horse industry. I came here not knowing if I could make a career out of this or if it was what I really wanted to do. All of the classes and staff have been amazing and proved to me that this is what I want. Thank you for giving me this amazing opportunity.
