recommendations for instructors/trainers in fairfax station, va area?
 
So my belovvvvveddddddddd trainer/bff is moving in June :( She gives me lessons with my own horse Dexter (and will sometimes ride him for me too if I'm having trouble with something) and has a few younger girls that she gives beginner lessons to using two of the ponies that the woman I board with own. Shes able to use the ponies for free, and they are both super sweet! So now we are trying to find someone to take over her lessons! We need someone who will travel to our barn in Fairfax Station, and that is quiet and calm with beginners and knowledgeable in dressage for me! My horse and I are still in the very beginning stages lol so we aren't quite ready for a super pro dressage trainer yet (imo at least) and it would be great to find someone that can give me lessons as well as the younger girls!

I've gone on Virginia Equestrian and found a few, we may try them out. My idea is I'll be a test subject and Kate will watch the lesson as a friend and see if she likes how they teach and their methods and if she talks talk to them about the younger girls she gives lessons to on the ponies...

So was just wondering if anyone had some good experiences with traveling instructors in the area? Hopefully someone that provides around the same rates she has, $35 for 1/2 hour $50 for hour, and I ride my own horse, and the girls ride the ponies and you dont have to split the money with their owner...
