Meredith started riding at Harrogate Hills Riding School when she was eight years old. She has been teaching lessons since 2014 and her favourite part about teaching is helping riders connect with their equine partners, as well as building resiliency, compassion, and empathy. Meredith is trained in Equine Assisted Learning (EAL). She has seen brilliant transformations in the people who have had the opportunity to spend time with horses.
