Mid Ohio is really hard for upper level eventing instructors. Ask me how I know? My son is currently in NC to train in the heat because he needs an intensive period of instruction. He does have an event instructor in OH who is extremely difficult to get on a consistant basis. We travel an hour and a half for that. We struggle with trying to fit in lessons with a dressage instructor and jumping. Clinics are also an option. You might try Kara Andrew who's in Creston. She events quite a bit and brings along a lot of green horses. I believe she also teaches. Ask Hunter's Run Pony Club who they use for instruction.
Oh ya! I forgot about Kara.
Thanks for all the suggestions!

God forbid that I go to a heaven in which there are no horses
I would definitely suggest Kari Briggs, who is the eventing coach at Otterbein College. She has evented at the Advanced level on a self-trained horse, and is an excellent rider and outstanding coach. She could definitely provide you with high quality instruction in the Columbus area.
