You do not need your own horse to take lessons in the Eventing World. Find an Eventing Barn, I am pretty sure the Coaches there will have Lesson Horses for you to learn on, ride, compete and enjoy.

If you can find an eventing barn that has school horses, you will not need your own horse. However, I have NEVER seen an eventing barn with school horses. All the trainers I know, you have to have your own horse. But I am sure there are some out there that have some school horses. Or maybe you could find a free lease.

Ok thank you :) there is only one eventing barn in my area, I know that they have school horses for hunter jumper but im not sure if they also use the school horses for dressage and XC, ill have my mom email and ask because a free lease is out of my options because my mom will say "ohh the board is too expensive and blah blah" and ik that's true because it is alot of money but still. Lol thanks for your answers:)

How is it an Eventing Barn, if they don't do Eventing? I don't get it, lol. Best of luck to you! I hope it works out for you!

They do eventing but what I mean is I'm not sure if they use the school horses for all phases of eventing or just the hunter/jumper

You'll definitely have to find out, because there's no point in going to an Eventing Barn, if they don't have horses who do all 3 phases - Dressage, XC and Stadium. Then again, there's no point in having an "Eventing" barn, if you don't do Eventing - lol.

Yeah I get your point, my friend used to ride there but she didn't Do XC or dressage, she just lessoned in hunter jumper. Also domyou think it would be weird to do hunter jumper at one barn and XC at another barn? Because I really like the horse I ride at my barn and I really connect with him but my barn is like I said a hunter jumper facility :( like right now I do hu ter jumper at my barn and western at a different barn but western is for a full day every Sunday spring and fall so it's kinda different... And I'd feel bad if I had 3-4 days a week for my activities when my brother doesn't get to do much :( I feel like a bad little sister for being so greedy

Try finding a Pony Club farm. I've noticed that a lot of the PC barns we compete with allow their younger members use the school horses for events and some rallies. We have about 3 horses at our place that do all three aspects of eventing and our lesson kids can take them to events.

There's only 2 pony clubs in my area and neither of them have school horses, I checked
