New poster here - I am currently looking for a good dressage trainer to work with my young Friesian mare (sport type). I live in North Central, Mass. and would like to stay within 1 - 1 1/2 hour drive. Potentially interested in showing and would like to see how far she is capable of going either with me (amateur) or trainer or both. Expecting to put horse in full training/board.
North of Worcester, near Route 2. Barre, Gardner area.
Any thoughts on whether Larry Poulin, Orintha Silva (Ten Broeck Farm) or Jane Hannigan would be interested/willing to work with a young Friesian and amateur owner? Any opinions? Again, just checking out my best options.
Horselover1, are you anywhere near The Ark? Barend Heilbron teaches there once a week and he's super with amateurs (also he's Dutch, so I suspect he knows Friesians). It might be worth contacting that barn and going to watch a few of his lessons to see if you think he's a match.
They don't call me frugal for nothing.
