    Default Dressage Trainers in Auburn/Montgomery Alabama Area

    I'm looking for a good dressage instructor in Alabama.

    I'm in Montgomery and train with a lady named Susan Wainwright. She's fabulous and has a wealth of knowledge and experience. She has evented at the Advanced level (long listed for '96 Olympics) and competed at the upper levels of dressage. Her website is www.foxwoodfarms.biz. Definitely worth looking into. There is also another lady outside of town named Judy Pirtle who teaches strictly dressage.

    Both those names sound familiar! Thanks so much for the info!

    I can endorse Judy Pirtle -- absolutely a genius and very kind, the horses adore her. She has a lovely farm near Tuskegee, could teach FEI level dressage to a camel.

    Another vote for Susan (she's my trainer too!) and Judy. Both are fabulous! Judy is a bit spendier, though. Susan also has Dorothy Maxfield come to the farm every month or so to give lessons.
