Looking for Dressage Barn/Trainer in NE Ohio

Hi all,

I am re-locating across country...from Oregon to Ohio.

I am looking for a dressage barn to move my horse to where he and I can continue our training. He is a third level gelding..I am at training level, and really am worried about finding a good place. Anyone know any barns/trainers out there?

Also, any suggestions on AFFORDABLE transport would be great too.

Thank you in advance.

I do know that there are a lot of Dressage trainers around the Findlay area, I suppose due to the University of Findlay. Unfortunately, that is on the western side of the state. You could always call the dressage trainer at the university(Janet - she is very competent from what I hear) and just ask if she has any references or suggestions.

Also, If you could find a professional transporter that does multiple horses headed in the same direction, you can save money because they may charge you less per mile. I don't know what the going rate is now.

Just a caution on using the cheapest transport you can find. I have heard a plethora of horror stories about transporting horses on the cheap and myself have had a horse in a trailering accident when hiring transport (not even on the cheap!).
Paying a couple hundred dollars extra and having a horse arriving in good shape, without shipping fever, and in one piece is way cheaper than dealing with an underweight horse with pneumonia on the back end of a $500 trip.

Good luck!

You are very very right. I Have researched every possible method and I just don't think I can wing it financially...it is SO expensive with the cost of fuel. :( I talked to my trainer last night about selling him. :( We shall see. I did however look around for trainers in NE Ohio, and found one in particular that has a great reputation, so if nothing else I can lease or just lesson for the time being.

I live in NE Ohio. There's a farm close to me called Grand Prix Farms, I believe the owner competes PSG.

Grand Prix Farm

I know of a few other trainers that do eventing, but this is the best around here that focuses primarily on dressage. Another good one is Fox Creek Farm; their trainer does dressage and eventing at the higher levels.
