I asked this once before a while back and got no responses, figured I'd try again. Are there any barns in the area with school horses? Looking for someone who is a h/j rider, not a beginner, that wants to do some dressage but doesn't have a suitable horse.
Try Barbara Wiefelstede at Chestnut Oak Stable - she is a "R" judge and has some school horses available. She has an excellent eye and is a good instructor (although she won't blow smoke up your skirt - said by someone who knows and loves her as a trainer).
About 5 mins off the I-95/Doswell/Kings Dominion exit.
I board with Barbara, so I second the recommendation. I have never taken a lesson from her, but she's a super nice lady, and her horses look good.
There's also Lani & Patrick Tigchelaar in Hanover. I don't know if they have schoolies, but they always have horses advertised for lease, so they might be available for lessons. www.tdstables.com

We don't have school horses but one of my boarders has expressed interest in half-leasing one of her horses for someone who would like to take lessons with me if that would be of interest.
Also second the rec for the Tigchelaars. I met Lani years ago when she came for clinics with George Theodorescu and I invited them to start their business at my farm when they got married. We had a great time together for a couple of years but their business eventually outgrew the space I had for their client horses. Lani's teaching is kind and clear for the newcomer to dressage.
