Witchita, KS Eventing Trainer?

I was at an Event today and found a possible Event Trainer.
She said there is an Event trainer from Witchita, KS that they go to take lessons from every now and then, and he is coming down to our state next month. She offered me to ride with him with the two of them as well.
I am just curious who this guy is, if anyone has heard of him?
I'm not exactly sure the first name, but if I hear it I may remember...

I know John personally. I started taking occasional lessons with him when I was 12 and still do (again, occasionally.). He is really nice and personable and has done ALOT in his eventing career (he's gone to Rolex, been long listed and short listed for two separate olympics). He is really good with horses that can be pushed and can do quite alot for you in that department. I spent a week with him when I was 13 at his place (REALLY NICE PLACE!!!!!) and found it very educational and my horse and I got a lot out of it.

He is pretty good with green horses but in my experience (not everyone's just mine) sometimes he can be a bit pushy about what he wants you to do. But if you really are firm and say you don't feel comfortable doing something, he is quite good at backing off.

I definitely recommend you take some lessons with him and see what you think. I haven't had someone yet come away unhappy from lessons. He is a good coach at events, too.

His website is www.windermerestables.com

What was the name of the person that recommended him? Just curious because I know of almost everyone in the area that knows him. PM me if you feel comfortable.
