Megan Nedow

I plan on majoring in Therapeutic Horsemanship Business Management.  I would like to one day be able to open my own riding facility and horse boarding barn. I feel that the classes at St. Andrews are preparing me for my future both in my riding and academically. I have learned so much in just the two semesters that I have been here. My riding and equestrian class instructors are so knowledgeable and willing to help me in any way that they can. The general education classes have opened my eyes to the world around me. The therapeutic riding program has helped me gain knowledge by being able to get first had observations of what it takes to be able to teach these children.

Extracurricular

I am involved with Ride Like a Knight. I volunteer every week at the barn and get hands on experience with the horses and children as well as other SAPC students, I also attend riding council meetings, take riding lessons of both western and hunt seat. I am also on the Jump Crew at the barn and set up jumps for horse shows.

Why St. Andrews

I would say to pick St. Andrews because of the down to earth faculty members that are so friendly and willing to take time to help you. We are a very close community because the school is small, it allows your teachers to get to know you better and build good relationships. If you need a recommendation letter, they actually know you and can give you a good one. The equestrian program is top notch and you learn so much from the instructors, other students and the horses are so great. The librarians are very helpful if you have any troubles with finding research or writing papers. The atmosphere is fun and inviting. The activities that SAU puts on are very entertaining.  The horse and barn related classes really get your hands on and open your eyes to what really happens in the world of horses. They show you all the responsibilities and ups and downs that come along with horses and are very informative.

 

Faculty

My riding instructor Heather Wile has been a really fun person to get to know. Since she graduated from SAPC not too long ago, she has a lot of useful tips about how to deal with college. I asked her for a recommendation letter to go on the Brunnenburg Italy trip and she didn’t even hesitate to accept. She is very knowledgeable of horses and has taught me so much and been very encouraging. All of the equestrian staff is excellent!!!

 

Experience

The opportunities that I have had to work with the RLAK program have been phenomenal. I was instantly attracted to the program when I first got my flyer in the mail about it. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but once I got here and got hands on with the riders, I was happy I decided to come. It is great to be able to bring a smile to theses children’s faces when they get put on a horse. Knowing that I was able to make that happen by being there is a great feeling. I volunteer in the morning on Thursday and it is a great kick start to my day

I have met a lot of really great people including teachers. Everyone is so nice and you really get to know everyone on a more personal level.
