View Full Version : Middleburg, VA area dressage/lesson barn?

Oct. 3, 2011, 08:59 PM
Could someone please recommend a dressage barn that has school horses for lessons in the Middleburg, VA area? My partner and I will be visiting for a week later this month and would like to ride during that time. Researching the web has led me to barns mostly catering to boarders. Thank you.

Alison Head is in Hamilton at Looking Glass Farm http://www.lgfsporthorses.com/

I haven't lessoned with her but did audit about a half a dozen and really liked her teaching style. Not sure if she has school horses though.

There are LOTS of good dressage instructors in the area, but most don't have school horses.

The one that comes to mind as having school horses is the American Academy of Equestrian Sciences
which is between Middleburg and Leesburg.

AAES looks amazing and I like the clarity in their variety of lessons. They did not come up in my searches so I am so excited to be introduced to them. Thank you very much for your help, Janet!
