Talking Dressage Scene in Wellington / Palm Beach area

My fiance and I are tentatively planning a vacation to Wellington this year. I've never been, and I'd love to see the equestrian center, farms, etc. I was thinking we might go in September, to see the Wellington Dressage Fall Classic, 9/17 & 9/18. While we're there, I'd love to find a trainer with a nice schoolmaster that I can take a few intensive lessons with. Keep in mind, I am a total newbie to dressage, coming from the h/j world, and I'm a returning adult after about 10 years off from riding.

Any recommendations for a great trainer with a nice schoolmaster for a low level rider? Since it's vacation, and it's just for a few days (maybe 3-4 lessons during the week that we're there), price per lesson is really no object. If you know of anyone that would be willing to teach me while we're there, please let me know! And i'm not opposed to being stuck on a lunge line the entire time either...

Also, any additional ideas for where to go and what to do during our trip is greatly appreciated!!! And, if anyone hears of any good clinics around that time, please let me know that too, and if there's another time this summer or fall that has more exciting events!!

You'll have to call around.. I don't know how many people have schoolmasters for lessons and many of the trainers are working towards pan ams so I don't know how much spare time they'd have. You'll probably be looking at smaller barns of which I know none... so sorry! But a cool place to visit is woodspring farm.

Thanks Anabel! Once we know exactly when we are going, I'd like to reach out to a few. I came across this place that I thought might be a good start, Dressage Training and Instruction - Bethany Peslar, Everglades Dressage And, my trainer rides with Jessie Steiner, so I'm hoping they might be able to give me a few recommendations as well. Unfortunately, the Steiners won't be in FL by September, but there must be SOME trainers there in the fall!!

You would be surprised how quiet a city gets haha. After winter circuit is over everyone heads north for the summer/spring/fall shows. Everyone kind of starts arriving in November. But I am from H/J world so I wouldn't be able to help you on a dressage front. Be sure to put some money aside for a trip to The Tackeria!

Off-topic: Z, I've been following your posts on here and we've got so much in common. I'm 30 and I'm coming back into riding after a 10 year absence from hunter/jumper/dressage but now I own my dream horse (a 11 yr Oldenburg, which started as a lease) and we've switched over to only dressage last year. Even when you posted about Z having his suspensory injury, mine was down with illness (heart) and a splint injury so we're just getting back into slow work now. It seems we lead parallel lives.

Now on topic. My trainer just got back from Wellington for the winter. We start up lessons again this week. I'll see if she knows anything suitable for you.
