    I currently have offers from all 4 university choices for Equine Business. My top 2 choices are Hartpury and Moreton Morrell. I have an unconditional offer from Moreton and a DMM offer front Hartpury.
    I've always loved Hartpury but I'm wondering if it would be the right place for me. It's an hour down the M5 from me so close enough to pop home if I need to but not on top of my parents! Moreton Morrell is an hour and a half - an hour and 3/4s away, but is 20 minutes from my grandparents and Aunt/Uncle if I needed urgent help from family.

    Hartpury had amazing facilities, but had no turnout Oct-March (and sometimes beyond) which is a bit of a deal breaker as I'm planning to take my horse and she hates being stabled for long periods of time. I have not yet seen Moreton (I'm going up there in a few weeks), so not sure what facilities/livery/turnout is like.

    I hear a lot of nice things about Moreton, people are really happy there etc.

    It is also close to a lot of BE venues, which is also vaguely important to me as eventing is our thing!

    Just wondering which university you chose/why?

    Moreton Morrell !! I haven't heard that name for years. I had friends who were very happy there, but that was an awfully long time ago...!

    I initially had wanted to go to Hartpury for many many years (probably since 2011, I applied to do A Levels there but wussed out feeling too young to leave home just then!) but the more I go and see it, the more I wonder if I would be happy there. I still love it, and think it is amazing, but I'm just not sure if it is right for me! Obviously I am yet to see MM, but it does sound lovely, so I just wanted to get some people's opinions on it!

    I am so glad you said that - I put Hartpury down as my first choice last week and applied for accommodation and livery. I am sorry you do not like Moreton Morrell, but thank you for your input! Out of interest, what course are you doing there?
