    Thanks everyone! I am looking forward to the move. Magnum, I may look you up if you don't mind? thanks for the PM.. I have lived in Canton, Akron, Cleveland and Toledo so it only makes sense to hit Columbus. Hopefully we saved the best for last!

    I have a good friend that teaches and trains on the north side of Columbus, Robin Vaughn Strait. She shows as well as her students, several of who qualified for the region II finals She doesn't take just boarders, but will board a students horse. PM me for her contact info.

    The Freisian Empire is also north . (I have only showed there, can't speak for boarding experience)

    Robin Straight is good too

    We are SE and do boarding, and don't have a resident trainer, but do clinics.

    Have fun!!

    I know of Timber Run Farm and the lady there is Jen Roth. (Spelled something like that). I've never ridden with her so can't really help you in if she's good or not, but I see her at lots of dressage shows, actually, almost all that I go to. It's near Johnstown, which is more Northeast.

    It's not far from where I board, but where I board is boarding only. There is no resident trainer so I haul out to mine (I event), but it's totally worth it.

    I'm not sure that Fresian Empire has a trainer there currently. Also, there aren't many horses there anymore. I don't know what happened, it could just be a transition period. That place is big.

    In my opinion, Central Ohio seems more hunter/jumper oriented.
    God forbid that I go to a heaven in which there are no horses

    I would trust Linda Wolz (Walnut Farm) for good referrals/recommendations.

    There were *rumors* of a plethora of issues at the Friesian Empire .... Agreed on the H/J slant .... but Columbus is getting progressively better for dressage.

    Try Heartfelt Farms, they are just west of Columbus. They do go to shows, have a very nice facility and the folks I met there when I bought my mare where all really nice.

    I looked up Roberta Williams and found her and her husband.

    Have any of you boarded or trained with Robert Williams? How far away from Columbus is the barn? I am looking for a dressage barn. I compete, but have a "hot house flower" Dutch who is very high maintenance health wise, so need to have meticulous care.

    PMs are great.

    George Williams is indeed at Gypsywood Farm..My understanding is he does training/clinics/competing.. Gypsywood is a large breeding facility and I do not believe they take boarders. To bad Check out their website..gorgeous facility!!

    They do take boarders at Gypsy Wood, though I'm guessing they must be in training of some sort. Contact Roberta and George directly - RoGeoWms@aol.com. They're both lovely people, great horsemen, and Chuck and Joann Smith, GWF's owners, could not possibly be any more lovely and charming. And they have the same footing we do, and it's GREAT!
