Trainer in VA to Start Horse U/S
I have a 3-year-old mare who needs 30-45 days professional training just to get backed and started quietly. I'm getting back into "riding shape" but don't feel 100% confident in my abilities to correctly handle any potential greenie fireworks.
She's currently boarded in Berryville and will eventually be moved to Charlottesville, where I am living. So I am open to suggestions for a trainer either in the Loudoun/Clarke County area or the Charlottesville area. I plan to show her as a hunter, but I'm less concerned about finding specifically a hunter trainer to put on the initial training.
Any good experiences with trainers in the area backing the young ones?
Also wanted to add - I'm working with limited finances as a recent college grad with a liberal arts degree. $1200/month is likely the max I can do.
