    5 minutes on GOOGLE ( bored and sick of living in a snow globe) shows a Melissa Roddy Wright who seems to be a competent Eventer- perhaps ask over there if she is in Colorado?

    Common name and there is also an NH trainer with a bunch of vids on YouTube.
    When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

    It is a private barn. Her daughter Samantha Wight shows all over the country. Wellington, Kentucky, Washington Horse Show, Devon, etc.

    She is connected with Blue Water Farm llc in wellington at WEF and one other barn. I will try and pull up the record.

    That does sound extremely tempting. Private gigs have their ups and downs but can beat the crap out of a public barn assistant situation. IMO it's going to come down to personalities so Schedualing a personal face to face meeting will tell the tale.

    Any major red flags with that type road schedual would have quickly been waving. I'd set up a meeting ASAP. If you all are on the same page and think you can stay there after the meeting? I'd go for it.

    Quick correction. Melissa Roddy Wright moved to PA many years ago and is a journalist as well as competent eventer.

    And this article about the barn:

    Not sure if that helps.
