In my twenty-three years, the most outrageous and most successful decision I ever made was to embark on my adventure at Meredith Manor. As most horse enthusiasts, my dream was to work and play with horses every second of the day. However, the necessity of making a living was interrupting my fun. In frustration, I searched for possible solutions to my dilemma. Searching the Internet, I found this web site for Meredith Manor. Two years later, it is my great honor to be named the Outstanding Rider for the 2002 Spring Quarter. I feel my sucess at Meredith Manor is reflective of the truly outstanding, refined program and teachers at this institution. The school's philosophy has taught me that ribbons and trophies don't make reputations, but hark work, calloused hands, and consistency are the design for living your dreams.
