I’ve seen a bunch of suggestions from folks on here for trainers and farms in my area and plan to get out there soon and start taking trial lessons to get to know folks and find “the one” but I was wondering if anyone had suggestions for my specific request.
I have been trail riding and messing around for the last few years but would like to get back into hunter jumper with the possibility of doing some local shows. I have a mare that I trail ride and am looking into adopting another horse who would be better suited to this plan. In the meantime, I’d like to start taking lessons to get back in H/J shape and access the muscle memory I hope exists from when I was a kid. Im nervous to get back into it (and of course also excited), and I’d like to find a low key trainer/farm that will be supportive while I regain confidence. I see a less competitive and slower paced farm as my happy place. Right now I’m looking for someone who would have school horses I could ride, but wouldn’t mind suggestions for traveleing trainers for when I do get another horse or who might be of help finding a new mount. I will be keeping the horses at home and expect to trailer in or ride at home later on.
I am on the north side of Greenville County, about 30 minutes to Tryon.
