Question Dressage Schools

Hey, I was just wondering if there were any schools ( anywhere in the world ), that are like a boarding school? Where you live, ride, and study all at the same place? Does anyone know the game HorseZ ? Where you are a girl, and are going to a riding school, you do jumping, cross country, and dressage. I know that I shouldn't live life referencing video games, but that's what i'm sort of looking for, does anyone know anything of that nature? [ sorry if this should be put in the barns & stables catigory, but i'm looking for a dressage school so I put it here! ]

There's probably more schools like that in Spain, France, Germany, and some of the other european countries... but they are very selective about who they accept into their programs and I'm sure it costs a fortune. Basically, you'd have to have been working with and riding horses most of your life before being considered.

There are some less hardcore options in the states where you can be a working student and take lessons (as sort of a side thing, not your whole life). There are also some universities that offer degrees in horse business/training.

Eek, that school that Kitten showed costs $31,000 a year with boarding included. That's more than my university tuition and living fees!

Google "stonleigh burnham school".. I'm not sure I spelled it right but it will still come up. Its an all girls riding school where they emphasize riding. They have dressage, hunter/jumping and cross country. Its georgeous my mom almost let me go thete when there was a possibility we might move out of the country my senior year! Its in mass. And the only thing wrong with it is how expensive it is :/

As far as I know it's very well known around (it's reasonably close to me). I'm sure they have enough students (and there is a number of very wealthy people in DC area). Although personally I think it's WAY too much. Better go to the usual school and board and train in a fancy place (we have number of VERY good dressage and hunter/jumper facilities around).
