Looking for lessons in Virginia

I'm having a really hard time finding anyone in my part of the state: all the places I have found seem to be in central or northern Virginia, but I live in the west! Does anyone know of a trainer who offers driving lessons (with their own school horses, I should add) in western Virginia?

See if you can find a driving club near you, and also look for mini horse breeders, they may know of someone :)

There is a guy that does weekend driving classes up in North Garden off of 29 I think. My mom took driving classes up there,

Rebecca Terrill - Bundoran Belgians << That's my mom in the pic!! Lol

Maybe this place could work, or contact them and see if there is a place closer to you!

Thanks guys, I'll check these out. I actually wouldn't mind taking a week or two to travel for an intensive course.

This is all relative, but Dragstra Stables doesn't seeem all that far away from you. I'd love to be as close.

How is Wikke coming along? I really like the idea of giving my guy a traditional friesian training that includes driving. He

Are we talking about driving lessons or riding lessons? Sorry, I'm lost.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Well she posted about driving lessons in a driving section, so I'm not sure why you are confused...

OH! Driving horses! Got it. Wow I feel dumb. I didn't see it was in this section :P
