    I know some posters here board there or have experience with them. I'm interested in Steph's program and would like to hear others' experiences. Please feel free to PM. I need the option of full training board but like to have a la carte training options as well.

    My understanding is that Steph is pretty flexible when it comes to training packages. BUT I think she is getting ready to go south soon anyway, if you want training through the winter you are going to be out of luck.

      I've boarded there for years. I really like it and work very well with Steph. I am, however, in the a la carte side of the house...we schedule lessons, and if I want or need more (like competing or schooling my horse, which she has done, or sending him to Florida, which we haven't done), I could easily add it in as !ong as she has time. This works really well for me, but I can't tell you too much about how the full training options work. Her current students in that program seem very happy. If you in the full program the horse lives over at her barn, a smaller area off to the side with smaller paddocks. If you are like me, you board in the main barn or, as I do, in the field board side.
      She does go to Florida ...I think she leaves after Christmas. She flies back for the occasional weekend and we have Jimmy Wofford at least once a month during the winter along with an excellent FEI dressage trainer. Both of them come during the week so depending on your work schedule this may not work for you.

        asterix - does she have any assistants stay back to ride horses who don't travel to Florida? Or do you basically have to send your horse south if you want to continue a training program throughout the winter?

        Thanks so much for the info!
