    Well our wonderful trainer Jayne Lavender is getting way too busy and can't fit us in everytime she comes up *sigh*....

    So would like to know your favourite trainers/instructors that travel... (oh we been searching, now want some other ideas)...

    We are an electic group, and like to start from the ground up, some are heading towards campdrafting/western and others (me;)) want to head towards dressage and lower level eventing (like really low lol)...

    Who would you recommend... some of us have baby horses and others of us have newly started horses and some have old timers. So like I said an electic group.

    Who would you recommend?
    Oh and please keep negative off the page as it will get closed and we generally like to know whose out there. Pm Crafty or I if you are really worried.

    My mother is awesome (didn't think that from about 14 years of age through to about 18/19 years of age though :p ) but unfortunately she is in Northern Victoria and probably wouldn't travel to WA :(

    Good luck looking.

    Mel Fleming is great. She is coming in August to WA and is doing a clinic in Margaret River and Albany, she may come up to you guys if you got enough together.

    I went to her last clinic, it was my first clinic in many years and it was fantastic. I learnt heaps. Nellstar(a fellow stocky) also has been to her clinics maybe PM her. I am going to the one in August in Albany.

    LOL Gonerama... wish I had listened to my mum at that age too.

    I know Deb, Jayne rocks, but shes getting too busy now with the horse agility and can't fit everyone in. Plus I'm really keen for others to get lessons with her when she's up and I'll catch her a coupla times a year. I got so much out of her. As for Vanessa, no she doesnt travel this way. Alot won't and I don't blame them.

    We run our people around, feed em, make sure they have a nice place between us to stay in the various spots... part of being in the country.

    Thanks GTD... will pm Nellstar and google this afternoon. off to play, was gonna do house work...:eek:

    Merriden is doable... we've been known to do mid-night dashes to the vet there as the Kal vet didn't do emergencies (horse and dog).

    Thanks guys will chase up!:))
