Dressage around Geneva

Hi Everyone,

I moved to Geneva this very day and am addressing the most important issue first off. I must ride! Though I do not now, I have owned horses in the past and ride (US terms here) up to first level in dressage. I am not looking to buy as I don't want to ship a horse back in 4 years but would love to get my foot in the door somehow, riding dressage here in the Geneva area. I suppose I would start off taking lessons so everyone can get to know each other, then perhaps move onto leasing a horse. Please message me if you have any ideas or recommendations for private farms or teaching stables. I can certainly get references from the US but that is no substitute for getting to know each other (horse and human) in person.

Thanks! Mary Lou

Thanks, I will check it out! Any info on a stable in Onex? It's in a park right on the tram line.

Re: Dressage around Geneva

Unfortunately riding in Geneva is very expensive :/ At least compared to Australia. Let me know if you manage to find anywhere that won't break the bank!

http://www.equinet.ch/de/index.php often has horses for lease and part-lease.

I do have an extra voucher for 2 x 30 minutes private lessons in English or French at Centre Hippique de la Chaumaz, which I bought and am selling at half the usual price. I haven't ridden there yet myself, so can't say how good it is.

I am still looking, having been away most of the winter. Can I get to this stable with public transportation? I live in Nyon. Have you found anything else?
