Trainer recommendations in northern va?

So after recent events this past week I'm looking hard for a trainer/somewhere to send my horse for 30 days training. I have a few in mind but I can't really find too many reviews in them...wasn't sure if any if you had someone you had a great experience with...or really bad one that I should stay away from! I'm taking a lesson Monday with a trainer that my former trainer had found to replace her with her other students...we'll see how that goes and if she feels she can work out what we're going through. Otherwise I either need to send him away or sell him :( can't afford a serious injury from him exploding like he has been and my confidence is like zero at the moment.

Also, my old trainer that moved said I should really find a female trainer to work with...says he respects men and won't try anything with them...thoughts on that?

What type of trainer are you looking for? How far from Alexandria are you willing to go? I can think of a few that may interest you.

Well, everything had been going great till a few events this past week. He's now going into bucking fits whenever anything makes him uncomfortable. We've both lost our trust and confidence in eachother now too :(

I feel like I need someone to put some rides on him, help him get his confidence back up, then work with me on him. If I'm taking him somewhere for like 30 days I'm fine with anything around an hr travel from mount Vernon area of Alexandria. Prob little farther wouldn't kill me as long as I could go on my days off work. He's located in fairfax station, va.

English, mostly trail riding but slowly trying to teach him a little dressage. Not sure if I'd ever actually try to show him though. We did a judged trail ride in April that I had an absolute blast at and want to do more of...was supposed to go to one at the end of this month but I'm not now.

This is one guy I'm highly considering...he costs a LOT more but he seems worth it. He also highly encourages the rider to come out as much as possible to work with him and will put the rider on one of his horses at first to help regain confidence and teach you what he's teaching your horse so you can learn how to apply it to your horse.

I boarded here one winter and had Todd work with my horse and I. Did wonders for my confidence. He also has an indoor, so great for wintertime if her has room. Yes, he is parelli certified, and most of you all know I am not a parrelli-ite-but he is just a good horseman. I would recommend him highly. He will also help with the trail riding training, which many will not.

I'm not really a natural horseman type person so I don't know of as many trainers in that route but I have looked at this one a few times... Don't KNOW them but they hold a lot of clinics.
