Looking for someone to school a hunter over fences a few times this spring. Would need to trailer to their facility or go to Masterson. Doesn't need to be professional; just someone who rides young hunters well and doesn't charge an arm and a leg. Any ideas?
I don't know of anyone in lex besides Elaine Schott/ natassia hover at river mountain farm. I found their lesson rates to be very reasonable. You might be able to find the training ride rate on their website.
My old trainer just moved there from CA and is not only a fantastic instructor, she is especially good riding and training the youngsters. She started 2 of mine from scratch, one went on to lead the small Jr hunters in country for most of the year until she was sold. I started with her doing short stirrup and rode with her all the way up to the medal/maclay finals.
Not sure what she charges but she is doing freelance work while she gets her judges licence and I'm sure would drive out to you. And I guaranty you will get more than your money's worth. Call her: Cris Chastain 818-261-6866.
The woman who rides and trains for me full time is exceptional with young and green horses and has a lot of experience bringing along hunters and jumpers of varying talents and experience levels. You are welcome to come here any time! She might also be willing to work with you in Lexington. You can call me at 859-221-3531 for more info. Her name is Sarah Conyers and she is very well regarded in this area.
