I am considering moving to Los Angeles and am interested in full-service dressage barns that offer training board and train up to GP. I am definitely not looking for a stable with or within a riding school! I'm open to anything within LA or Ventura county.
There are lots to choose from, but LA/Ventura County is a very big area. There are many, many GP trainers out here, but here are the ones I actually know and can vouch for:
LJ Banks, Burbank
Lehua Custer, Moorpark/Burbank
Kamila DuPont, Moorpark
Jan Ebeling, Moorpark
Hilda Gurney, Moorpark
Louise Koch, Hidden Valley
Michael Lieberg, Moorpark
Verena Mahin, Moorpark (My trainer, and DASC Trainer of the Year)
Charles Pinneo, Moorpark
Mette Rosencrantz, Calabasas
Sabine Baron Wright, Hidden Valley
As you can see, Moorpark is a very dressage-intensive area. There are three 4* show facilities within a 10-minute trailer ride, so you can show almost every weekend without going more than 10 miles from home.
