    Default Dressage instructors near Boyds/Gaithersburg, MD?

    I am a h/j rider looking to get into dressage. I am currently riding a former dressage Pony Club horse, but I feel I have some gaps in my flatwork, and I would like to learn how to "problem solve" better to help him (and any other horse I ride) to progress as an athlete.

    Any suggestions on good dressage instructors in the Boyds/Gaithersburg area of Maryland? I am hoping for the $40-60 range--is this realistic for dressage?

    I took a couple of lessons with Hilary Moore when I was up in Maryland and she's out that way in Montgomery County and when I took them her fee was $60. Anyway, I liked riding with her and she helped me out with Kieran a bit.

    Don't know their prices but the following are in that area (disclaimer, I have not taken lessons from these but know them because I live in the area):

    Barbara Strawson
    Jaralyn Finn
    Caroline Jordan (I think she still teaches)
    Cathy Echternach
    Hillary Moore (already mentioned above)

    There are others I just can't think of at the moment

    If you want to travel a little further for the opportunity to ride a PSG schoolmaster:

    Abby Adleburg -- She's in Boyds. If you are near her, she might even come to you. Knowledgeable, friendly, calm instruction.

    Julie Hagen -- She runs an eventing barn in Poolsville and is a very capable dressage instructor.
