Read, Ride & Run Rewards

Meredith Manor's Read, Ride and Run Rewards program

Welcome to Read, Ride & Run! We’ve updated our popular rewards program that allows you to earn points toward Meredith Manor gear while preparing to be a student at the same time. Learn more about horses and equine management through reading. Improve your physical well being through riding and other forms of exercise such as running and walking or whatever physical activity you choose. This program is flexible and fun!

How to Activate Your Rewards Account

Read, Ride & Run is for future enrolled students, current students or alumni of Meredith Manor. If not yet a student, you can activate your rewards account by submitting your enrollment application and $100 application fee. You will receive a RR&R log book with your acceptance packet. Simply log your time, miles, activity and reads into your log book.

Current Students, Graduates and any Future Enrolled Students that don't have a log book can request a log book by emailing . If you do not reside on campus please provide your current mailing address with request.

Log Book

Our students are routinely asked to log activities and using a log book for RR&R helps prepare incoming students for systems in place at Meredith Manor. For each RR&R activity completed, make an entry. Once you’ve earned enough points, take a picture and post it to the Meredith Manor Facebook page and wait for your gear to arrive. It’s that easy!

Reading

You are welcome to read whatever educational or informative articles you choose about horses, their care, or the industry, just keep track of the number of pages you read. We also offer suggestions on our web site at meredithmanor.edu. There you will find a list of articles and books such as ‘The Art of Horsemanship’ and ‘The Ultimate Horse Training Guide,’ along with classic favorites such as ‘Misty of Chincoteague’ and ‘Black Beauty.’ Each item comes with a point value based on length and content. If you choose a book not listed calculate points as follows: 3 points for every 50 pages.

Riding

We want you to spend time with horses and riding, but any activity with horses can earn you points. For every non-competitive hour riding a horse, or time spent training, volunteering or caring for a horse, you can log one point per hour.

Running

It’s important to be physically fit while attending Meredith Manor. Every mile logged, whether it’s running or walking, can earn you a point. So can other exercise, such as the elliptical, bicycling, cross fit, rowing or whatever physical activity you choose. Log that time as one point per hour of exercise.

I will never forget the ability Ron Meredith had to get inside a horse's head to understand the reasons for the horse's response to stimuli. I learned things at Meredith Manor that have carried me through an entire lifetime career with horses and ponies.
