I'm graduating from college this spring and starting to look for jobs around the state, with the hopes of finding something in eastern Washington. I'm from the west side and I've been enjoying my break from the rain the past couple of years .
Among other things I want in where ever I end up, I really, really want to get back into lessons. I'm just not sure of horsey, or even event/dressage areas outside of my old stomping grounds of the Seattle area. If anyone has any good places/cities to recommend for riding (I'll then check out job opportunties ) it would be much appreciated.
Eventer Karen O'Neal recently relocated to the Spokane area www.onealfarms.com. She is a good instructor and has good facilities and lesson horses if you don't own your own. I don't know what field you want to work in, but Spokane is big enough to have a fair selection of jobs. The dressage scene here is decent (several schooling and recognized shows), but you will have to travel a bit to show recognized eventing.
Mary Richmond Brown is a dressage trainer and L Graduate in the Spokane, WA/Post Falls, ID area. I really miss my lessons with her, but now that I'm in Colorado it's a little more complicated to get to a lesson with her.
