I am based in the North West and looking for a regular Show jump trainer and jumping buddies. Seems a big ask if your not already working for a pro or fortunate enough to have the budget to buy a string of expensive horses. I am certainly not knocking anyone who I have had lessons off but I now need a regular trainer who has time to push me out of my comfort zone so I can progress to the next level, which is when the faults that require improvement start to show!!! Sadly I am too old and at a stage of life to not go and work for someone and although successful, I am not wealthy enough to buy a string of horses, so therein lies my problem. I am competing 1.10/1.20 and want to progress up with my scopey, careful perhaps not as brave as I need experienced horse. At the moment I go to shows on my own which I find fine until I try do go up a level. So it would also be good to find someone similar to go to shows with. Nice to help someone and vice versa. Nice to have someone take videos and vice versa as so much is learnt watching the replay of a round. As mentioned earlier I really want to find a trainer with time to train me, this would be someone who has jumped grand prix. I find now that I know what I've done wrong but lack someoneo on the ground to help progress me .I look at acquaintances in the eventing and dressage world and it doesnt seem to be as hard to find the support.
