  • Needing trainer recommendations midwest/east coast


    I am looking for some trainer recommendations in the midwest and east coast. I recently sustained an injury that will have me sidelined and no riding for at least 3 months. I am looking for some recommendations for a trainer for my horse while I am recovering ----- I am also contemplating selling him --- so a trainer with a good sales program would be a bonus. My horse is a fancy ISR mare with upper level eventing scope to spare. She is super talented, sensitive, sharp, and has a bit of a buck --- I have only had her a short period of time so I don't know her all that well and her history is a bit unknown, and I don't quite know the root of her buck, my suspicion is she has few holes in her training related to her managing tension and pressure appropriately, and has had some heavy handed/rough training in the past. She has had a thorough vetting to rule out pain as a source, though there certainly could be some residual fear of previous pain from ill fitting saddles or foot soreness (just a possibility---I don't have any proof of this). If I hadn't been injured I would be sorting this out myself, unfortunately my injuries have limited my physical strength will prevent my from doing this.

    So I am looking for a trainer that is experienced and competent in riding and training a true upper level mount that is sharp, sensitive, and does have a buck. Ideally I'd like to find someone that can train, show and possibly sell my mare if it looks like I won't be able to return to the sport. I'd also like someone that is familiar with biomechanics and using it to improve balance and function. I do not want to send her to someone that will crank on her or be rough with her or be afraid of her as she is the type of horse that will not respond to or tolerate that type of rider. Now the good for good, as she is very fun, she will gallop around prelim xc easily without blinking an eye, drops, water, ditches, no problem, she's beautiful show jumping and dressage as well.

    ***I'll also consider trainers of other disciplines. Please share with me your experiences with trainers and recommendations or pitfalls to stay away from. Some that I have heard good things about are Bobby Meyerhoff, Leah Lang-Glusic, John Durr , Shannon Elizabeth Riley/Infinity Horse Sports, daryl Kinney, pippa moon, Michele zhuralev, Joe Meyer, Ryan wood, Jasmin Hobart, ------ Please give me your feedback and suggestions
