    Just as an aside, I transitioned my older horse to dressage (from hunters and equitation) two years ago. He is the perfect hunter type (meaning he has the sweeping flat kneed trot and very quiet...

    Chastain is likely going to be $$$ as well, given the location. And I would think it is a very hard place to keep a horse, given the lack of turnout.

    Perhaps Vogt would be an option if you want...

    You will definitely want to test the commute to any barn you are considering before making your decision; Atlanta traffic is unfortunately pretty tough and getting to/from "horse country" into...

    My perhaps not-so-PC answer is that it depends on what your alternatives are.

    If this barn is, on balance, still better than the others you could board at (even if that means you have to pick up...

    Haha. When Mr. L proposed to me, I asked him how he would feel about a very small wedding. "How small?" he asked. "Just the two of us," I replied. His response was, "That would be perfect." So I...

    I think plenty of trainers *do* offer opportunities to riders who otherwise would not be able to train at that level. However, I don't think they have any obligation to do so.

    I am a huge fan of Keratex and have had great results with it. I followed roughly the same protocol as RedMare01, daily for a week or so and then every 2-3 days. It works really well.
