    There are lots of trainers and barns to choose from. It's a buyer's market because there are so many.
    What are you looking for ? High end barn with BNT ? Or regular boarding with a lesson once a week ? or horse turned out in large paddock 24/7 and you ride
    whenever ?

    I guarantee San Diego has whatever you're looking for.

    thank you!...I'm looking for a nice dressage barn with a "good" trainer...not a BNT...I guess i could always haul in for a lesson if I wanted to...Are most the barns in the same area? Would it be best place to live? North County San Diego, or Encinitas/Carlsbad? Best prices for homes in which area? Just trying to figure this out....Should be moving next summer so I have a year.. again, thanks for your responses

    I'll let you know when I get there. Most I have talked to say North of the city is better than south. I'm in talks with a couple of barns and will pm you the results when I get them. Unless you're looking for adult riding barn and then seriously your choices are 2 times what mine are. I get the lovely task of finding a KID Friendly barn. (I really will post from the mountain top when I get the one I like.)

    I grew up in Encinitas. Lovely area, close to lots of horsey stuff. Would move back in a heartbeat if I could, but very pricy!
