I am in the Atlanta area - sometimes there is a good former junior out there in the work force that might like to ride, but doesn't have the money, etc. Anyway, if anyone knows of anybody - please send them my way! And thank you, everyone!:)

Good luck w/ that. I've been looking for a year and a half to no avail....

Well, you have to consider that the kids who can afford to show the big shows don't need a ride and the kids who can't afford it but are tough and talented need to support themselves. If you offer room and board and a small salary enough to pay for their food and car insurance and maybe room for their own horse you could probably find someone very dedicated and talented.

Isn't jsalem from the Atlanta area? Maybe you could send her and/or other Atlanta area trainers a PM or e-mail and ask if they have any junior or ammys in their barn who are good riders who would want the extra saddle time. If you were two states north I'd be all over this type of opportunity!

Well, Atlanta is a 3 hr drive from us , which is unfortunate as my son is 95 lbs, 5'4" and a decent rider ( still a jr) who would kill for the opportunity! I work and can't do he drive time, unfortunately. But, if there's anyone closer...

Hunters or Jumpers?

For jumpers, Hannah Anderson is a wonderful rider and can be reached via Kim Lands...
