Mecca and Kerry

 

Mecca Conway

At age nine Mecca learned how to ride at Green Heron!  She then went on to college and completed two equine related degrees, one from Johnson & Wales and the other from Cazenovia College.  After working professionally for seven years Mecca is so excited to be part of the team that taught her to ride. Primarily a hunter/jumper rider and trainer, she loves teaching dressage to jumpers to help improve their performance.  Nowadays she enjoys coaching rather than competing at shows and loves to see the progress of her students.
