    Default Looking for eventing barn in Bucks County (Doylestown area)

    Hey! I am an experienced rider who is in college, and am looking for an eventing barn in the Doylestown, PA area for the summer. I have schooled through prelim and would love to have ample opportunities to ride/train this summer.
    Barns in/around Doylestown, PA (Bucks County) would be great, and Hunterdon County, NJ area is NOT too far to travel!
    I appreciate any feedback! Thanks!!

    The upper level eventers are all in the northern part of Hunterdon County (Oldwick area) or northwest (Alexandria). If you don't have your own horse with you, you may want to look for a summer working student position that would give you some ride time and lessons in exchange for work. Doug Payne, Holly Payne, Marilyn Payne in Oldwick, Kristin Schmolze, Sinead Halpin - most of them are in Ocala or Aiken until end-of-April-ish, but often need summer help when home in NJ. Both of my daughters worked for Doug or Marilyn (who was, BTW, the first woman to judge an equestrian event at the Olympic level) while they were in school or in the summer in years past.

    Thanks for the info!! I've been a working student for 5 years, so am hoping that I can switch gears to something else, but thanks for the ideas. Much appreciated!

    He is in Reiglesville at least some of the time -- maybe 30-40 minutes north of D-town, I think...

    Jane is a fabulous instructor. One of my young friends boarded there while actively riding at prelim through college.
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    Ah - didn't know Jane Cory was based in Quakertown now instead of the "traveling" circuit (thanks, scubed). Jane is a terrific instructor and a kind and generous person. We had many years of competing at Pleasant Hollow Farm when her family owned the facility.
