    Default Dressage barns near Waterville, Maine

    Hello and sorry to be bombarding the list with questions about barns near college towns. My daughter was just accepted to Colby College in Waterville, ME and she plans to take her lower level dressage horse with her to college. Can anyone recommend a reasonably priced barn in this area with good footing, an indoor, good stable management and good turnout (you know, perfect!) Thanks in advance for any direction offered!

    You may want to check out the newspaper "The Horses Maine". This is a great resource for Maine horse people as it lists barns in Maine by location. Here is the link: http://horsesmaine.com/index.htm

    My good friend runs an eventing barn in Skowhegan and does the riding program for Colby. I can't recommend her highly enough. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Pendra...er/71593997013


    Or you could try Thistle Ridge in Smithfield if you're set on a more dressage focus. One of the members of my GMO boards there. It would probably be about a 30 minute drive.

    I 100% support Pendragon Farm in Cornville, Sandy is a wonderful trainer though she tends to be on the tough side so if your feelings are hurt easily she might not be good for you. I'm not saying she calls you names but she doesn't speak softly and I know some people take that as yelling and get upset by it.

    There is Puckerbrush Farm in Newburgh, though it is about a 40 minute drive, but it is mostly dressage based and the trainers are also SUPER WONDERFUL!
