It's the same person. I took lessons with her here in Florida during the same time frame- I believe she had a different last name at that time. I loved working with her.

Britta Johnston is the new owner of Mountain Vista Farm in Amissville, VA
Here is the link to Britta's new farm. She is training horses and riders from all over. She is also giving clinics at different farms in the Northern VA area and has students fly in from all over the world to learn from her. I highly recommend going out to meet her, bring your horse out for a lesson, or take a lesson with one of her talented horses. You will most definitely learn from Britta. She is extremely knowledgeable and has a unique way of teaching to really help you feel and understand what you are doing and why. All I can say is, go for it, you can't go wrong.
Britta recently started coming monthly to the farm where I board my horse. I had heard the part she wanted "fit riders". So I was reluctant to take a lesson but I tried anyway. She did not say anything about my fitness. She was pleasant and helpful, I have only taken the one lesson so far. So, I don't have a good feel for her training style yet.
