    Default Los Angeles area dressage barns?

    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.

    Any suggestions? I'd really appreciate it.

    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.

    Show facilities:
    El Sueno Equestrian Center
    Mission Pacific
    Spirit Equestrian
