    Default Dressage on the Cumberland Plateau??

    I posted my first post on the Off Course thread, but I guess it would have been better suited here... instead of being redundant I'm going to post a link and hope you'll read it...

    Where on the Cumberland Plateau as that is a big area? That info will help people help you. I grew up on the Cumberland Plateau in Sewanee, TN and now live in Chattanooga. The University of the South has a lovely facility and they may able to point you in the right direction. Also, you have http://www.mtdcta.org/ and http://www.chattdcta.freeservers.com/. They be useful to contact.

    Welcome to Tennessee.

    Happy Riding,

    Silly me, I guess that might help, huh? I'm up the 127 corridor in between Crossville and Jamestown. I said on the other thread that where we live is a geographical oddity... 1hr 45 min from everywhere!

    I second this. I am a Sewanee alum, and the coach there is wonderful, and I'm sure will help you if she knows anyone. I did not ride dressage while I was there (picked it up later), so I can't help you myself, but PM me if you like, and I'll give you the coach's info.
    The knowledge of the nature of a horse is one of the first foundations of the art if riding it, and every horseman must make it his principal study.

    howdy neighbor...

    Kathy Fox is your best bet there in Crossville
    she rides out of here:
    http://www.cddthoroughbreds.com/aboutus.cfm
    her credentials are listed there as well...she the real deal...one of only a few if you know what I mean...she was also British "young rider of the year" in 1979...rode/showed Badminton twice I believe, rides PsG with her horse and has her USDF medals...I just love her(obviously) and she'd do a good job for you and your child not suffering from an overwhelming ego

    Ms. Cathy Fox hails from Bermuda, and has experience riding with the Bermuda Equestrian Federation. The B.E.F. was formed in 1976 to enable local riders to compete for their country internationally and holds FEI recognized international dressage and show jumping competitions in Bermuda. While riding with the Bermuda Equestrian Federation, Ms. Fox had the opportunity to travel to Winnipeg in 1999 to compete in the Pan Am Games with Chris Taylor and Kevin Edward on Bermuda’s dressage team. As she is an Olympic hopeful for London 2012, Cavalli Stables is honored to allow Ms. Fox to use our facility to offer lessons and clinical instruction in dressage and jumping.

    Actually, I found Cavalli sables during a search online this morning and was just coming on here to see if anyone had any experience with it... it looks like it's about 40 minutes away, by far closer than anything else I've found. Thanks!

    we have had Cathy as friends and a hay customer for about a decade and the new stables there (which was C.'s old farm) for about 5 yrs...good folks and easy access off of the interstate...

    Hey, tnwannabe, my parents are retired in Monterey. We went on a trail ride at this farm once:

    http://www.circlekhorsepavilion.com/

    Not a dressage facility at all, but a nice farm, attractive well-cared for critters.

    I totally agree that this part of TN is 2 hours from anywhere. It is QUIET.

    Good luck finding what you are looking for. You are more likely to find Mennonite woodworking than dressage training. But at least board should be reasonable!
    I tolerate all kinds of animal idiosyncrasies.
    I've found that I don't tolerate people idiosyncrasies as well. - Casey09
