Let’s make this happen for Jarret!!
it would be wonderful if we could make it happen, BUT he would have to start with walk/trot classes and someone has to have a patient schoolie for him to ride.
I love it when somebody gets bitten by the horse bug as an adult! Go Jarret!
I never got to ride as a kid. Only once in a blue moon ride horses at a public stable that put idiots (me) on horses. I was able to start riding thru a 6 week class at a community college. It NEVER occured to me to ride English before. I was instantly hooked. After a year or so, my trainer talked me into buying a horse. I had that horse for 29 years. Never sick or sorry. She was very plain and had a head as big as a Buick. Maybe someone will be the person to take him under their wing.
Is Jarret back in Lansdowne?
Anybody here there? Any good barns/trainers with a bombproof lesson horse?
Love it! If I was nearby I would totally help. We need more Jarrets! Jarret, if you are ever near South Bend IN, PM me and I’ll get you on my beginner safe mare!
My trainer would love to put him up on one of her lesson horses. Unfortunately he’s a lot farther from here than Fair Hill is from Lansdowne.
And if you scrolled to the comments, Jarret commented ( maybe a way to communicate with him), so I would Love to see if we can rally behind him and get him in a school horse.

I grew up in Lansdowne as a kid, am living proof you can get to horses from there. I don’t know how my mom found them, it’s not a horsey place.
Northwestern Stables and Chamonix Stables, both in Fairmount Park in Philadelphia, have adult beginner lessons, and I think so does Main Line School night, which uses the indoor at Valley Forge Military Academy. I’m sure there’s others, they’re just the ones I know of.
Can you post about them on Jarret’s FB page or PM him?
I was kind of disappointed and saddened watching the video on Jarret’s FB page. The article about him at the event played up the riders’ appreciation of and friendliness towards him; the video didn’t show so much camaraderie. I felt bad for him.
Still, if he really wants to learn to ride, I really want to do whatever I can to get him there. I’m hundreds of miles from PA and MD but any virtual help I can give, I’d like to try.
Anyone here close to any of those barns @halla mentioned?
I’d hate to see this just all disappear.
