This is truly a premier equestrian school! If you want an equine education that can be truly focused on what you want to do this is the place to go. The number of horses and the level of education available here is great. It is incredibly expensive and every year the tuition goes up. There are some generous scholarships available to students including the LEAD program.
So far, it's been great here! My classes are great and my professors are very nice and understanding.
