This program was overall a great experience. The people were all friendly and welcoming which made my first time being abroad stress free. Louise was the best instructor and one of the kindest people I have ever met. All the excursions we took to see Scotland were amazing and I truly feel like I have seen this country in it's glory. We were also given time to travel which I spent in London and I actually looked forward to coming back to Oatridge. The classes were great and I am glad I was able to get my credits here at Oatridge while riding horses at SNEC.
