I am looking at interning at the University of Louisville this fall. So naturally I am looking to get my equine affairs in order first :D I am looking for an eventing barn. I will possibly bring a horse with me. (still haven't decided) I'm looking for recommendations on where to board and who to train with...so I can check them out when I visit the school.

Thanks!

Spring Run hosts recognized and schooling events. Susan is a great instructor. Blake and she put on really nice events.

Martha Lambert is in the La Grange area, too. Her students did quite well at the Area8 awards banquet last weekend. She hosts good clinicians, but does not put on an event.

Mary Lowry has a place called Alta Vista. I do not believe that Flying Cross boards any horses, but does have cross country schooling all summer.

Stone Place in Prospect, KY. Absolutely beautiful facility with wonderful trainers and lots of fellow eventers in the barn. Just moved my big guy there and I LOVE it.

I'll second the vote for Stone Place. Debbie Iezzi is the eventing trainer there and she is great. I have two horses there and I'm very happy.

Definitely Spring Run! My cousin rides there and I've visited a few times, it's just amazing! I've also been lucky enough to watch some lessons and have been very impressed. I'll be there visiting in September for the WEG and can't wait to ride there with her!

Susan and Blake Harris at Spring Run Farm and Mary Lowry at Alta Vista. You can't go wrong. There are other really great barns but these two I have personal experience with. You are very lucky, I'd love to live in Louisville!

Have had horses at all - they are each unique and each very special in their own way. Broader age range at Spring Run and Stone Place - younger crowds at Alta Vista. Love the people at each! You should take your time and visit, because they each have their own atmosphere. There is also Hidden Bridge Farm, near Spring Run:
