    Nancy Whitehead is at Entropy Farm in Woodstock. That would still be a hike, but the farm is gorgeous with an equine sports medicine vet as the owner/living on site. It is like a bit of KY in IL.

    I learned to ride in flat, pancake saddles. I had a Collegiate, and then upgraded to an Hermes.

    Good Article

    I thought this was a good article close to the OP's topic. Although it is dressage, a lot of the same principles apply.

    She has been a H/J trainer in the area for at least 15 years (probably more like 20). I think longevity around the N.IL horse scene says a lot for having a decent program.

    I recall a hackney on our local h/j circuit in the 90s (NIHJA). He or she was a really neat pony and did both hunters and jumpers. Went over all of the jumps, regardless if the kid was ready or not.
