Katie Cox, a student at Meredith Manor, an equine school

I Started riding horses at the age of 10 and it has been my passion ever since. While attending Meredith Manor I not only was able to pursue my passion, but gained skills that I will use in a fulfilling career. The compassion and expertise of the instructors enabled me to gain knowledge and confidence that will stay with me in all avenues of life. Being the recipient of their Outstanding Rider Award for Spring 2003 is an honor I will treasure. My 18 months at Meredith Manor will always be remembered as a time oflearning, friendship, and fun.


Update: Following graduation, Katie moved to San Antonio, TX where she rode and taught for Colonel John Russell at Russell Equestrian Center. She then returned home to North Carolina where she ran a lesson and boarding stable until 2008. She is now an equine vet tech at Greenville Mobile Equine Service.


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.
