    Default Trainers/boarding - Ohio

    Hey all,

    I hate for this to be my first post, but...

    I need a new barn. I'm in the Columbus, Ohio area with three horses. Pasture board is great. I just need safe fencing and good care.

    I'd also really like an eventing trainer. Eventing has always been my dream, but I'm constantly stuck with unsuitable horses and clueless H/J or dressage trainers. Or no trainer. I would really just love some guidance to finally, finally get me underway in eventing! I will clean stalls, I will work off board, anything.

    Oh, and hi. I'm new. I started riding at 15; western, leading trail rides in WV, anything to get horse time. Life changed and I was able to get my own horses! It's pretty cool I'm about to graduate college in May, and I have three horses. One is my old mare; she's a pasture puff at this point, or a walking vet bill. She's my baby, and always my favorite. Second is a TB I got suckered into. He's a sweetheart, but not so much a fan of the great outdoors. Then we have my dream horse, a BWP/TB who has SI issues.

    Question Also looking

    Hi,

    I also live in the Columbus area - east side, and was looking to hopefully find an eventing trainer.

    Thanks

    Apolloflyin, check your email box. I sent you the same email I sent to Monokeros suggesting five or six possibilities.

    Me too!!! I'll be making the move to Columbus also. Bexley to be specific. I am not moving until next June (2013), so I have a whole year to get this sorted out, but I am trying to do as much research as possible now.

    Would love an eventing barn where I could potentially find a half leaser to share my horse with. (Really the only way I could afford a big barn!) Would also love suggestions on smaller boarding facilities since I'm used to boarding at a small low-cost place (my guy LOVES pasture board) and then suggestions on what trainers might be good options for trailering in for lessons.

    Thanks!

    Monokeros and Apolloflyin --- How'd the search go?
    God forbid that I go to a heaven in which there are no horses

    If no one has mentioned it, my personal suggestion would be Laura Beaver in the Canal Winchester area. Rider (ridden through CCI*), trainer, event organizer (Gemwood and Greater Dayton), farrier, massage therapist. She's also a parelli instructor... but if you don't like parelli, that's ok. She's still a great person to work with. Contact her through Gemwoodevents.com

    I ended up staying at my current barn, but trailering to Jn4Jenny's trainer. So far, so good! I am at such a low level that this set up is working for now. I'm so glad she was suggested to me - everyone I talked to has only good things to say about her. And it turns out my room mate hunts with her! Small world.

    However, I will keep my ears out for those folks mentioned here And if any area COTHers want to do a trail ride, I'm always game for that!
