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!!
I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.
