Hi everyone! I am a student at Ohio State and I am looking for a new barn to ride at in the Columbus area… I just began riding English this past winter and have been loving. I’ve been having difficultly finding a good barn to ride at, however, and would love some help! The main aspects of a barn that I would like are:
- the willingness to teach me about horsemanship in addition to riding skills… I’d like to be at a barn that could take me on as an intern/volunteer to learn all about horse management and care
- a kind and patient instructor who is willing to work with young adults like me
- either a hunter/jumper or eventing focus
That’s a lot to ask, I completely understand, but if anyone could give me any guidance I’d greatly appreciate it! I really want to improve in my riding ability and I am willing to work hard to do so. Thanks everyone!
