Instructors near the DMV?
Things have finally settled from moving here and I'm on the hunt for a lesson barn!
I grew up riding hunters but took the last few years off as we were living where the only trainers were for reining and a very scary student-taught, university-based riding club (to be fair, there was one barn that had "english" lessons but I think their only qualification to teach was owning a saddle that didn't have a horn). I want to transition to dressage and so have been looking around the web for local-ish trainers.
I would like someone within 50 miles or so of the western edge of Alexandria, have their own lesson horses, and be willing to work out some bad habits I picked up riding hunters. We're paying off student loans so someone close to what I think is the area average (seems to be 60-70 from what I'm seeing online?) would be nice too.
I know there have been a couple of threads about this in the past so I've gotten a sense of some of the locals but I'm just making sure I haven't missed any.
