24 Jun Student Becomes Youngest USDF Certified Instructor in the Nation
Senior Meaghan Byrne is the youngest person certified as a United States Dressage Federation (USDF) instructor. She is certified from the training level to second level. Byrne was able to attend the certification workshops and take a number of the tests at Averett.
“Averett University was certainly a huge aid in my certification process,” Byrne said. “I was able to gain experience from the wonderful students, horses and faculty. Averett also has a great facility that is used by the USDF for many of their educational programs.”
Byrne is pursuing a business administration degree with a concentration in finance and a minor in equestrian studies: dressage.
