Hello everyone! I am moving to Boca Raton, FL in a week and am looking for someone to train with. Here is a little bit about me - I rode and competed in the H/J world growing up and then took a 10 year hiatus from riding for school. When I got back into riding, I realized my passion had changed and I enjoyed dressage more. I have been training in dressage for the last 2.5 months with a trainer who was just in town for the winter season.
I have been calling and emailing a ton of trainers and it seems like everyone that is willing to train doesn’t have a school horse available to give lessons on (or people just don’t call/email back). I am ok with a half lease option, but I don’t think a full lease makes sense because I am only going to be able to ride 2-3 times per week. I hope to buy a horse in then next 12-15 months, but won’t be able to do that if I can’t find a good (correct) trainer that I can trust and who is able to train me up until that point. Not to mention, I think I need a better understanding of what a correct horse feels like before I take that big step. I don’t need anything fancy, just correct training. Any advice is truly appreciated!! Thanks!
