“My time at Potomac State was one I will always remember. The small campus and classrooms made it so much easier to get connected to your classmates and professors.  The horses taught me more than I ever thought possible. They built my physical and mental strength, and helped me grow as a rider, trainer and all around horse woman. My project horse was Bailey. I have never been tested by one little mare so much in my entire life. But because of Bailey, I became a stronger and better rider. Because of Potomac State, I was a better person.”

“Potomac State gave me the know-how and confidence to make it where I am now. I'm forever grateful for my time at PSC and for all of my professors for never giving up on me.”
