Posting this for a fellow boarder...

She is in high school and will be moving to Greensboro this summer with her family. Her horse is a green 7 yo OTTB with whom she has recently started learning dressage. She and her family are still what I would consider new to horses and need a barn where they can trust the caretakers and trainer(s) to help them continue to build the correct foundation when it comes to riding and horse care. She is not really into showing beyond the schooling/local level, so she does not need to find a competitive dressage barn, just somewhere where she can have access to good, correct, and somewhat affordable training.

The barn where she is currently boarding is actually a low key, western pleasure horse breeding barn owned by a semi retired vet. She rideshares with another boarder once a month to trailer out to a dressage trainer for lessons. The barn itself is very well managed but very laid back, and she and her family love that type of atmosphere.

Any suggestions? TIA!

Tami Batts at Fellowship Farm in Greensboro.

Nancy Sharpless at Chestnut Oaks Farm in Climax.

These are 2 that come to mind quickly.
