Sara McKiness at Meredith Manor, an equestrian university

I came to Meredith Manor in the fall of 2000 from St. Charles, Illinois. When I was 10 years old I was working on a Girl Scout badge for horsemanship and from then on horses were a passion for me. Before coming to Meredith Manor I had sporadically been involved with them for about 8 or 9 years. Knowing after high school I wanted to make horses a bigger part of my life, I did some Internet research into equestrian universities. This is how I found Meredith Manor. I graduated in spring of 2002 and I am currently working at Meredith Manor as a Graduate Assistant.


Update: Following graduation, Sara went to work for a Grand Prix Dressage trainer. She continued to teach and train while working under various trainers and now has her own successful training and teaching business in St. Charles, IL called Horse Logic.

Sara is a certified horse trainer who helps riders improve their communication with horses without punishment. She travels to local barns in Chicago and local areas and helps with any training or riding issues that clients may have. Sara will improve your relationship with your horse and allow you to communicate in a horse logical way!


I feel that every day I spent at MM made me more prepared for my future. The theory and the eye that you get from being immersed in an in-depth program really makes all the difference. I have been able to adapt what I know to any discipline, any situation.
