    Question beginner dressage lessons in NJ?

    hello, could anyone recommend a beginner Dressage instructer in central NJ. I am looking to take lessons on a school horse at first so I can focus on me. Eventually I will want to take lessons on my own horse but she is only a 3 yr old and ver green. So if anyone knows of a trainer with an indoor so I could ride in the winter, and someone who could possibly come out to my farm next spring/summer to give lessons on my horse would be perfect.

    I do not plan on riding in the olympics anytime soon so I really want someone who understands that and can just help me be a better rider.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated

    Where in Central Jersey? I board and train in Allentown on the Cream Ridge border.
    We have a few lesson horses, one goes up to 1st level the other is training level, both are safe, sane and consistant to ride. We also have trailer in clients.
    My trainer rides up through Prix St George and her husband's horse is doing 2nd level I think.
    Both teach begining dressage riders. Not fancy school horses but also not a snobbish barn and the clients, including myself, are not Grand Prix riders. My horse is green to dressage, he was a hunter but likes dressage alot.
    We also have clinics that are informative.

    Here is the link so you can look around
