I just relocated to St. Louis and have tried looking for good barns, but am ready for some recommendations.
I rode HJ until my early 20s, when I got tired of all the drama and things not being fun anymore and quit. I'm realizing now that the only thing I wasn't enjoying was the politics and aesthetics of the discipline but I do want to be riding.
Anyway, it's been 5 or 6 years since I've ridden regularly and I need a bit of hand-holding. I think the best place for me will be a multi-discipline type facility with reliable school horses to ride while I regain my confidence and my seat.
I also like some of the others mentioned but these are probably the ones I would recommend. If you want someone that will go to events with you I would go with the top one. Ellen goes to quite a few of the local events to help out her students.
Set youself apart from the crowd, ride a paint horse, you're sure to be spotted
