Jumper Barn in DC Metro Area where I can lease ch/aa jumper??
I just moved to Alexandria, VA and this summer will start school at GWU in foggy bottom.
My horse is a seasoned 3'6" jumper, currently in Columbus, OH (where I'm from). Her lease is now up and it doesn't seem like I'm going to be able to find another lease there. So I am looking to move her to the DC area and hopefully lease her for 6 months to a year until I'm settled.
I know there are a TON of threads about boarding/lessons in the area, but my specific question is: does anyone know of barns/trainers that have the type of clients who would be interested in leasing a 3'6" ch/aa jumper? I am super flexible and would even be willing to do a half-lease, or an expense only lease for the right person/situation. I just want her to stay as happy, healthy and sound as she is right now :)
It seems there are a lot of boarding facilities/up-down lesson places but I really need a place with a jumper trainer that has clients and shows. I am hoping that I can find a place where I can take 1-2 lessons a week so I can stay fit for riding and have my horse back when the lease is up.
I don't have any connections in this area so I'm not sure where to start.
Any help/info is appreciated. Thanks!
