    Default Any good jumper trainers working out of the Homewood equestrian community near WEF?

    I may have an opportunity to take a adult jumper to Florida with me. I am sharing a house in Homeland. I was wondering if there are any good jumper trainers based out of there? It would be great if riding around my crazy work schedule was made simpler by having a trainer close by.

    As a side note. I do not currently have "a" trainer. Because of my job and recent move I ride with various trainers. All of the trainers are aware of this so no worries about stepping on anyone's toes

    Homeland?

    I don't know of any A trainers that do jumpers in Homeland, but you're right down the road from a mecca of BNTs that will be here for the season. You could hack out and ride to plenty of barns for training

    Suggest calling Cynthia Hankins. When I spoke with her less than a month ago she was freelancing and was looking for some students. She lives close by and my guess would come to your farm.

    Have not trained with him but did audit a clinic and was quite impressed with his approach

    I know someone who groomed for Todd for a few weeks this summer when he needed an extra hand. She spoke highly of the way he treated his clients and horses.

    I used to lesson with Todd, and he was in Loxahatchee..Fox Trail..that was a few years ago, so that might have changed. Although his website still has a Fox Trail address.

    He is excellent, once I have another talented horse I will certainly try to ride with him again. He is also a wonderful and encouraging coach at horse shows.
