I know quite a few... not sure who's willing to come to you though. What part of n. Texas are you talking about? And how much are you wanting to show?

My stables is in Anna, and I like to show, but don't come across the money too often..not more than 3,4,5 times this summer, or this year.

Ooh... you are north texas. Hmm. The trainers I know are from horse shows so I"m not sure who will be willing to travel.... but here is a website that might be helpful, it's a list of all the trainers who are a member of the tx hunter jumper assoc.

Trainers

Take a look and see how's by you. There are A LOT of good trainers on the list. Find a few you might be interested in and I can give you my opinion if I know them.

Thanks! I looked for the two closest ones, do you know/how are: Tracey Badly Molly Hunt, Courtney Calcagnini, Kelly James, or Jeff white? Also have you ever trained with Jessica Pye? If so, how is she?

Courtney Calcagnini I believe trains with McQuay stables, which is one of the top stables in Texas. Tim McQuay is into reining, and I beleive is one of the best. Colleen I don't think is quite as well known but is very very good. Courtney is a nationally known hunter rider. I'd ride with any of them any chance I could get! However, with their extensive show schedule I have a feeling it might be hard to schedule in, and I would doubt they would travel. But definitely worth calling! I'd call them first.

I don't know Jessica Pye so I can't say anything about her!

I will PM you about the others.
