I like eventing, been playing with the sport for a couple of years now. Now, as a new resident of the area, I have been on the lookout for a new trainer. I have taken dressage lessons fairly regularly this last year but almost no jumping so I am currently looking for an eventing trainer. I was given the name of 2 people, from different sources, and left them messages. NO ONE called me back??? I finally got a hold of eventing trainer last night (3x calling), said she doesn't travel to give lessons, roads aren't good for hauling in and basically she wasn't interested and I should try person X but didn't have their number. She "feels bad about passing you off already, but it sounds like X would be better for you" I didn't realize mid-Michigan's economy was so good that you could turn down new clients but I guess it is? 5 days later still haven't heard back from trainer #1 and can't find the number of person X in Google. Even placed a CL ad without a response.
I just need someone to nag me into riding better, doesn't anyone want to be paid to nag me lol! Hoping to find someone soon, I need a goal to work towards and a good nagging is a good incentive.
