Barn to work With Young Horse SF South or East Bay

I’m not from the area and am looking for reasonable up and comer to start my 5 year old appendix. He’s still green but manageable, (leads, collects, stops, needs some transition works) but now want to get him more on a working schedule in an area commutable from Menlo Park. I’m a hunter rider and bought this one as a hunter prospect, but recently decided I want to try something else. I understand he might not work, but I’m looking for someone that can seriously evaluate him, and if he’s good enough help him and I move up the ranks. Ideally an up and comer or reasonable rates since I don’t want to throw a lot of money in him if he’s just going to be average. If it’s an event rider that hits up an occasional H/J show, even better. All feedback is appreciated. The barns super close by (menlo/woodside) are out of my price range at this time.

Well, while I do not know if they are the most affordable option, Dayna Lynd-Pugh and Shannon Lilley with Flying Tail Farms do an EXCELLENT job of evaluating prospects.

They operate out of Red Fox Farm in Gilroy, it is a nice facility, and board is much less than the Woodside / Portola Valley / Menlo area.

Thank you! I saw them on BayEquest and thought they might be worth checking out.
