    Kathy Wood Copa might do it. She is certified through fourth ( which is the highest certification available) and is excellent. She took my horse and I from schooling first last year to this weekend getting all of our scores for the bronze in two days, cracking 70 at First, getting a 69 at Second, and up to 64 at Third. Another student of hers was at the show and cracked 70 both tests. She is totally low key, kind to horses and riders, and gets insane results.

    She is based in Lima but she does travel. Might make the trip out to you guys for enough students.

    What part of central NY specifically? There are a few decent and some very talented instructors hidden in the cracks.

    Could you list some of them?

    I travel throughout the state and am always willing to give someone a try.

    As you have several riders, who are looking for a third and fourth level trainer, someone must have worked with you up til now.

    As others have asked, where are you located? Central New York runs from Syracuse to the Pa border. There are local BNT's in there and accomplished not so BNT's. Some are good trainers, other are good riders.

    A PM will work.

    So, no particular area of upstate NY which is the size of several smaller states? Even for some one who travels a bit for lessons and training, I doubt you would drive 5+ hours in any direction for a weekly lesson. So...what area are you looking in??
