RMC is the answer if you seek a challenging and rewarding career while satisfying your passion for horses. From the classroom to the arena to the hunter course, RMC immerses each student in both Western and English riding and training techniques. Students survey a carefully designed spectrum of courses, providing a strong combination of hands-on and literary education, enhancing and developing their riding expertise.
