I would like to take one lesson a month on a school master to start learning some new stuff, can anyone recommend someone around the snohomish area?

It's been years since I lived in the PNW, and I've actually forgotten, but isn't Snohomish near Woodinville... have you contacted Pam Penz (SP?) who years ago owned the stallion Wies Wien (again sp?). Pam may know of someone, or she may have what you want. Her farm was on the Woodenville- Duval Highway, about a mile south of the intersection with Avondale. Think it was called Darby Farm, it was near where Sterling Stables used to be (same side of the road).

I assume you want Snohomish County, not the town

I have known Stephanie for many years and would happily recommend her

Kim Brodie-Lacy in arlington heights has her retired FEI horse- might be worth a call.

Andrea Lucianna has (I think) a PSG horse she gives lessons on. Highly recommend calling her.

Emma Dye (woodinville) has a 4th level school horse. He has super easy flying changes.

Debbie Fornia- DeWitt might have something- she is in Monroe.

Stephanie has school horses but not schoolmasters.

Janne Sleeper might be worth a call too- she has an older FEI horse, not sure if he is available for lessons. She is at White Birch which is 5 mins from Smokey Point.

What level horse are you looking for?

Many thanks guys!

I'll start calling around...not looking for anything amazing, would like 3/4th lvl as my guy is getting solid 1st/2nd, hence want a schoolmaster to learn my next stuff on.

Lindsey Anderson in Orting
Janet Grunbok on Bainbridge Island has horses through GP though I know nothing about her lesson program, if she even has one.

although both pretty far from snohomish county

I believe Shaun McLaughlin-Myers has upper level lesson horses. They are in Auburn

I believe Lisa Cope, in Redmond has school horse lessons

Just saw this and had to comment. I, along with hoopee, have know Stephanie for a long time. I find it interesting that reidsporthorses.nz felt qualified to speak to the training of Stephanie's horses... I did some research. A number of Stephanie's horses trained and scores achieved do not even show up on centerlinescores.com because that database only goes back to a certain date. I believe Stephanie began to show USDF in 1978 so many of her horses trained and scores do not show up anywhere. Let's just leave it that, if she says she's got school horses for all levels of dressage, I would imagine that one can believe her...

You've received some good suggestions. I wish I could recommend my instructor because she's absolutely top notch in the area but she doesn't have school horses. There is one instructor mentioned above that I would caution you to proceed carefully with. Obviously I am not going to post info on the board but I can give more info via PM if you ask, just felt a little odd sending it unsolicited I guess.

:sigh: :) I can't wait to move to Sno County...
