Meet Our Trainer
Early on as a child, Audra knew she had a deep love for horses. This passion grew as she began to learn more, eventually taking her to compete in the Hunter Ring throughout Virginia and North Carolina. She soon knew “this” was what she wanted to do for the rest of her life. In 2008, she moved to West Virginia and began her equestrian studies at Meredith Manor International Equestrian Centre where she studied and rode daily under the eye of Trainers. Audra graduated from MMIEC with many certifications including her Riding Master VI, Equine Massage Therapy, Teaching, and the highest level of Training Certification MMIEC offers- also receiving the Outstanding Rider Award. After graduation, Audra spent another 9 months under the eye of her trainers, while working as a Graduate Assistant at MMIEC. She then moved further into the equestrian world and began working for a top Dressage facility in New York.
Knowing her heart was in West Virginia, Audra moved and began working for Meredith Manor in 2012. While continuing to ride under and with her trainers, her love for teaching grew. Since working at Meredith Manor, Audra has been awarded the Outstanding Instructor numerous times. Throughout her time for MMIEC, Audra has worked with many riders and horses of all skill levels and capabilities. Though her personal focus now, being in Dressage, Audra has been riding and teaching Jumping and Western for years. Since working at Meredith Manor, Audra has spent her personal time training and riding “problem” horses and starting horses as youngsters. Formally, the Head of the Dressage Department at MMIEC, Audra has decided to make her childhood dream of owning her own facility come true!
