My aunt just recently purchased a beautiful 5 year old Andalusian stallion from Spain for Dressage. She is currently looking for a new coach that understands the Iberian style horses. Is anyone familiar with coaches in Eastern Canada or US?
Please PM me if so.
Muriel Chestnut is excellent, she is a Barnmice member, located near Barrie I believe.
Jill Stedman is the best.

JP Giacomini at www.baroquefarmsusa.com is a superb classical French dressage instructor, former Olympic coach to the French team, and developer of Endotapping. I've watched him work. He's one of the best communicator teachers in the industry. He also has a subscription site if she'd like to get a feel for his style. He is very understated in his approach, verbally, and is able to go directly to the source problems rather than waste your time w/alot of language and philosophying that is unnecessary. He is a master at the lightness-softness approach. Check him out. There are others on the east coast also. Silva, I think is one and JP would likely offer a nearby recommendation. JP does one or two clinics a year in Canada--Ontario, I think it is.
