Does anyone know where I could refer friend in her 50ies, maybe:confused: to learn correct basics, about" through the back"vs. flexion of the lower jaw:lol:; where, she would be able to ride schoolmasters and feel what "on the bit is" She is, I fear , about to buy once again for the 3rd time in 9 years:eek: a horse who probably can not do what she says she wants to do :mad::eek:

Garland Farm in north Georgia. I went a few years ago, and a group of us are planning to go this year.

Sons of the Wind in Merrimac, MA

You can come from out of town, stay at the farm and take lessons on schoolmasters

Paul Belasik also runs a short course in PA

Robert O. Mayer is farther south. I guess he's now in Florida. He was in VA or NC for awhile and PA before that. He also has short courses.

Mark Russell has short courses as well: http://www.markrusselltraining.com/educationalvacation.html. He's in TN.

I have a friend who tried riding at Sons of the Wind and she won't recommend it. If the OP's friend is not up to their level it will be an unpleasant experience.

The same friend is currently riding once a month with Paul Belasik and it has improved her position and taught her a lot.

She is welcome to come ride mine. I have two horses who would be suitable for her to play around on.

She could ride my horses to her heart's content and take private lessons with my lovely trainer at a pristine facility in NJ.

I've never ridden here and its not a camp, but a lesson or two on her school master might help. http://www.halfpassfarmva.com/ best part is that its local to you.

VADA/Nova's camp is for riders with their own horses. I think more than a "camp" experience, what she is looking for is an intensive period of riding someone else's schoolmasters to get a better feel. Perhaps some lunge lessons for position etc..

What ever happened to the school in Germany (in Warendorf) that was geared to US and other non-German riders taking shorter courses? I went and visited it at one point but then I think it is gone now??
