Hi Everyone! I am currently applying to physical therapy school, and I have the possibility of attending Georgia Regents University (formerly Medical College of Georgia), which is in Augusta, GA. I currently live in CA so I am totally unfamiliar with the area. From my research, I think I would probably live in Columbia county, but all of my classes would be in Augusta. The horse area in that region I have heard the most about is obviously Aiken, but I would definitely be open to other suggestions! Does anyone have any recommendations for trainers/barns within an hour’s drive of Augusta/Columbia county?
This is what I would love to have in a barn:
- Hunter/equitation instruction (I am just not a jumper at heart! My mare is also a TOTAL hunter)
- A show level barn, but no requirement to attend a certain # of shows per year (won’t be able to do a lot while in school, if any)
- Full training options as I will probably only be able to ride about 2-3x a week with my intense schedule
- I have a mare, so if you know of any trainers who have the mare feel, that is always helpful! :lol:
Thanks in advance!
PS any general advice on moving to this area would also be soooo appreciated !
