    I third Jeff. Clients seem very happy and relaxed but learning.

    Jeff has had his problems, but hopefully they are past.

    No - they are probably an hour and a half away.

    Teddi Ismond is in that area as well (I think)

    Teddi Ismond is located just behind the showgrounds at Hits Culpeper. She does an outstanding job targeting the mental aspect of riding. She has a wide range of clients.

    Is Teddi still there? I thought she was back in Keswick (Florida for the winter). Of course, the Charlottesville area is not that far from Culpeper and plenty of good professionals there (Teddi, Claiborne Bishop, Chanda Boylen, all of whom are good with adults).

    I highly recommend Brooke too. She does a great job with both young and more experienced horses. She has one of mine in training now and I've had several other horses (and a couple of ponies) in training with her over the last 4-5 years. She has done a terrific job with each one. In addition to training, she's catch ridden for me, prepped ponies at shows for my daughters, prepped horses of mine at shows for other riders, shown one of my young horses, and puts tune-up/training rides on horses my daughters are regularly riding.

    If I had unlimited funds, Brooke would be competing a string of my horses and bringing them up the ranks. Her current location behind HITS Culpeper is ideal for young horses.

    I'll second Brooke as well. I've known her for a good while now and she's got a very patient, down-to-earth approach that's great for a timid rider.

    Paul Mathews is near Culpeper as well. He is excellent at preparing horses for junior and amateur riders.
    Ask around.

    I have been in the area for a very long time. My statement wasn't rude as much as it was true. In the past, Jeff has had some personal issues that I hesitate to disclose on a public forum, but considering how far in the past someone may or may not be bothered by them.

    Oh The good old "I know something you don't know" series of cryptic statements.

    If you feel its imperative but doesn't belong on the board, then PM the person. If not, then zip it. Being that even you feel that it's "far in the past", it probably falls into the latter. Veiled comments like that add nothing.

    And for the record, I don't know Jeff personally and haven't done any sort of business with him.

    Before everyone jumps on 992 for posting, giving a heads up about potential issues is not always a bad thing for the horse community: ie JB thread. If 992 had posted something more concrete, it could have been "get ready for a lawsuit": see EM thread. A pm is a good place to start but considering it was not a really malicious or nasty statement, lets try not to jump on people who may be trying to give a heads up.

    But that's just my opinion. I have no dog in this fight about that trainer one way or the other.

    ETA: COTHer who indignantly pmd about my post, never did I compare anyone to EM or JB. Going back in time, people had posted vague concerns regarding certain people. My post was neither for or against any trainer, just voicing an opinion. The bock option is available if you do not like my posts.
