    I was about to post a very similar query, so I'm glad I did a search first.

    I'd like to find the best instruction possible for a horseless rider in the South East Michigan area. I am mostly a newbie to specific Dressage instruction (background in H/J), and want to build my foundation the right way.

    Willing to go up to 2 hours (maybe more?) from the Rochester, MI area for the right person. Any advice would be much appreciated!

            A friend of mine runs Dressage by Jayne (Jayne Bailey) in Saline -- is that close to you? I'm not sure if she has schooling horses or not.

                I'll second Barb at Brilliant Reflection. I started riding with her because of fear issues and will be leasing a horse next spring. it's a gorgeous farm and I am having a blast training there.

                        Ah, shoot! I admit I don't know the east side of the state very well -- I'm over on the west side. Good luck with your search!

                          Also, Judy Kelly is in Clarkston and is fantastic, but she doesn't have school horses.
