Mane Event is more focused on hunters & jumpers, which would be a problem when you started showing - unless you have a trailer, then you most likely won't get to many events with them. Hunter paces, maybe. Events, doubt it.
I'd look into other farms that aren't too far of a drive from BWI. Waredaca was mentioned, that would be a great place to start. It's abot 30 minutes away in Laytonsville. Columbia Horse Center, which is only 20 minutes away, has an event team and TONS of horses to learn on.
Tons of other event barns out in Howard County and in Anne Arundel, south of BWI, in the Davidsonville/Crofton area.
Let me know if you want more suggestions!
Shoot, I missed the section about Columbia in your post. Forget I said that.
Maybe try Equilibrium, instead?
