After more than a decade in Washington, U.S. Equestrian Federation Youth Coach Jeremy Steinberg has moved his business to San Diego. Though he was previously located in California, Steinberg moved to Carnation, Wash., in 2002, and then to Duvall, Wash., in 2009.
“I was in San Diego for five or six years, and I moved back to Washington for family and friends,” said Steinberg, 37. “I’ve been so busy the last couple of years with the youth stuff that it’s making it so hard to show and be involved in that way. With all the traveling I do, I’d like to be somewhere where it’s possible to do that again. I was starting to feel too removed in Washington.”
Steinberg would like to get back to showing more himself, and his girlfriend, Britta Pedersen, is moving from New Zealand soon as well.
“She wants to compete and try to make the New Zealand team. For her to live in Washington, it’s not great logistically,” he said. “She needs to be near CDIs.”
Some of Steinberg’s students, including North American Junior And Young Rider Championships gold medalist Ayden Uhlir, made the move with him.
