Equus Magazine Japan was on campus this past week doing interviews and a photo shoot for an upcoming article on Meredith Manor. Students and staff both participated and it was a lot of fun.
Meredith Manor was the winner of the Equestrian Social Media Awards in the Riding School category. It is an international contest and we are quite pleased with the award!
Congratulations to Nancy Wesolek Sterrett, head of the dressage department, and her horse Rommulus WF for making the top five Hanoverian in the nation this past show season.
The overflow dorm had some major renovations last month and is now divided into three large rooms with individual bathrooms in each room. They look great.
Please stop by the Meredith Manor web site at www.meredithmanor.edu for pictures of our recent graduation and showmasters. If you haven't been to the Meredith Manor facebook page lately you will want to do that as we are posting daily about the "going ons" on campus.
Meredith Manor will be hosting our Annual Visitor's Day on May 11, 2013. This year we will also be hosting a reunion to celebrate Meredith Manor's 50th Birthday!
We will be on Spring break from March 23rd through March 31st. Regular classes will resume on April 1st.
