    Question University of Washington, Seattle event barns?

    My son is looking at U.W. for a PhD in astro-biology. That's at least 5-7 years of work. His horse is going to be old and gray by the time he finishes. His horse is currently living with me in Va., so it won't be exactly convenient for him to bop home for the weekend to ride.

    Please give us suggestions of event barns in driving distance. While he will be up to his eyeballs in work, he has always made time to ride and even muck for others, in order to get horse time.

    Where do Don Sachey or Wofford do clinics? Other teachers of that school?

    Thanks for you thoughts

    Wofford clinics out in Kennewick, but that is a fair distance from Seattle. http://www.tulipsprings.org/calendar/calendar.htm

    A fair bit of information here: http://www.areavii.org/links/
    Some prior threads with information: http://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/sh...ers-in-Seattle

    Don Sachey's clinic calendar is thus far uninformative http://www.extendinc.com/donsachey/lessons.html

    Wofford has what appears to be an updated calendar on his blog http://jimwofford.blogspot.com/

    this publication may also have helpful information: http://www.flyingchanges.com/htmls/events.html
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    That's so much cooler than even what Reed does!

    Driving distance to a barn from the UW is questionable! But Scubed's post is full of excellent information. Good luck, and wow! what a field of study.

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    He IS doing some nifty work- creating a way to model entire eco-systems in extreme environments. His Master's thesis is on a closed- to- our- atmosphere/environment eco-system under a glacier in Antarctica. He is out there on the far reaches of science. Hopefully, he will be working with NASA on Mars or other planet discoveries.

    While he wants to be an astronaut, he won't be able to take his horse, so I hope he changes his mind. (I admit I'm prejudiced- I like time with him)

    His horse is a big 17.1+h full tb who is a total love. They would really enjoy some regular time together. The last 2 years, the masters was at Washington state u, and we could not find a good spot for his horse. He mucked for friends to get occasional rides and came home on breaks and the summer.

    Thank you for your ideas!

    Whicker, that is so awesome! I'm so happy for "M," it just stinks that we can't keep him in the saddle more regularly! Not to mention I suspect big "T" is pining for some more rides. I need a time/space transporter, does "M" know anyone working on one of those? It would allow me to be here in Centreville and out there with you in seconds flat!

    Whicker, I just posted a Facebook message to two friends on the West Coast (both Event, one is just outside of Seattle.) Will let you know if I hear of anything promising. Fingers crossed!

    And here's a thread from the summer about Seattle, might be more H/J, but a good trainer / barn is a good trainer / barn!

    Traffic - uhm. Not nice. But UW and Seattle are a blast.
