I am considering moving back home to Michigan and have a few jobs I could consider taking. One is in Farmington Hills, the other is in Oxford. I am looking for a barn/trainer within a 45 minute drive. Relocating is contingent upon finding a barn and trainer that I like.
I am looking for the following:
-24 hour turnout or at least all day turnout 7 days a week
-Need an indoor
-Don't care if barn/indoor are heated
-Would prefer a small, private farm
-Need a trainer that is capable of training a complicated mare. Currently schooling level 4 with potential to go much higher. Would prefer someone with a strong dressage base. Mare has only ever gone in a loose ring snaffle and I have no interest in changing that. Not a supporter of draw reins, side reins, etc.
-Going through a divorce and may not have the money to show any time soon.
-Looking for board around or under the $600/mo mark.
Thanks in advance for any recommendations/forewarnings.
