    Default H/J Trainer in Gainesville

    Hi there! I'm looking for an h/j trainer in Gainesville, FL, who will come to my barn to give me lessons. I'm working with a green OTTB and would like some help getting her started over fences, but I don't have a trailer so someone would have to come to me. Any ideas?

    Not a lot of options on ones who travel. PM me where you are and I might have some suggestions.

    My horse is on the east side of town, near Kincade Hills. Our farm backs right up onto Payne's Prairie.

    The thing about smart people, is they look like crazy people, to dumb people.

    I doubt Jessica or Tinker will travel that far. Would be at least 30 min across town. That far out Chris is probably your best bet.

    Cool! I left a message for Chris and will get in touch with the people at Rolling Acres just in case they do want to make the trip. Thanks, everyone!

    Ask over on the eventing forum. There are some eventers in Gainesville, and they may/may not overlap between forums.

    Well, you will never know until you ASK.

    I talked with Chris for a long time yesterday and it seems like a lot of our training philosophies are in-line, from what we can tell so far. He's willing to travel to Gainesville so I'm gonna give him a shot! I'm excited. It's funny, he used to live in the same town as me in Virginia so we know a bunch of the same people. Thanks for the recommendations, everyone!
