Okay, so I know I have a LONG ways to go before I can pursue such feats as Jumping. However I want to know what I need to do to get to that point. I'm interested in bettering myself and my riding. My end goal at this point in my life is to compete in some higher level Jumping (and some Dressage).
My problem: I live in rural Kansas. Holton to be exact, north of Topeka. My former trainer has chosen to cut off all contact. (Very long story, and shall we say petty and very immature.) I do not want to trust my growth and development as a rider to just any yahoo claiming to be a trainer. So how would I go about finding someone of credit and worth? I am very serious about this, I just don't know where to start.
About all I can do at this point is pray God will bless me with a Kungfu Master of horse riding!
