Does anyone have any experience with this place? I'm thinking of making a change, as I am currently a little unsatisfied. Looking for a good place to bring a young hunter to put into full training. Looking to have the horse shown pre greens on the rated circuit about 10-15 times a year. Looking to move up to the first years in a year or two.
I'm not a hunter anymore, but when I think of Apex Equestrian, jumpers come to mind first. Have you looked at Finally Farm in Raleigh or Trademark Stables in Apex? Both are smaller barns that have a different approach than some of the fancier places and both have trainers who I've met and respect (for different reasons).
Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.
I don't think the OP does have a lot of options for full training and a busy A circuit schedule (10-15 shows a year) I certainly can't think of a barn with a full time trainer in the West Cary/Apex area that goes to rated shows. I can think of hunter riders that are proven and excellent with young horses but not in the immediate area with their own barns.
I have bought some hunters from them and sold some and have found them to be quite likeable people. Their facility is quite nice and their horses very well cared for. They had a recent trainer change and that may be the basis for the "altertomyalter" comment.....go see for yourself
