See my trainer never mentioned about the coggins test! Its like we keep telling her that we want to show and are doing lessons but she never fallows through, UNLESS its on her terms/time like this year she has a new competition horse, so we are more likely going to show. Hopefully! Cause last year she didnt pull through.
I need to get a truck and trailer and show on my own or form my own show group but if I did that I wouldnt hear the end from my trainer it would be hell... Shed be really mad because she wouldnt be making money off of it.
Im even keeping it hush about starting my own trail riding group!

Sounds like you need to find a new trainer... YOU are paying HER so she needs to do what YOU want on YOUR terms. I don't put up with PITA traineds that I am paying good money to...

Yea, you need an up to date coggins test! I agree with the above poster! You might want to look into a new trainer

What do you mean PITA traineds?

I really wish there was another trainer around here, that is good. But my trainer right now is the "best" in the area.

Its like with this new 4-h group she doesnt mind doing it as long as she doesnt have to do most of the work, its like she doesnt mind training us as long as she gets paid and cops out in the end, you know. HMMM *sigh* I got a guys phone number to a boarding stable I'll have to call him and see if he has a trainer/coach out there.

But I do agree with you guys! It would be nice to have a more involved coach...

PITA = Pain In the A**.

You might want to check with the Washington State H/J Association to see if they have a list of trainers in your part of the state.
Home

Also check with the Washington HJ Foundation.
http://www.whjf.org/

And the Central Washington Dressage people.
Central Washington Dressage Society - Yakima Washington

And check the list of GMOs in Region 6 to see if there are any Dressage groups in your area. They might know of barns with Dressage and jumping trainers.
GMOs

When looking for a new trainer, ask for references and background, ask what level students they work with, what shows they go to, how their students do at the shows, if the trainer shows, etc. You can check the trainer's winnings yourself by emailing the USEF.org show people. They can look up results by name and state for Dressage and H/J shows.

I found one thats 3hrs away :( but she seems like a good trainer better then where im at shes a bronze medalist, now thats something to brag about.

The gas and lessons would kill me if I went weekly, I wonder how much it would cost going once/twice a month. Be worth a look... Or I could just win the lotto and not even care about money

Thanks for all the links!

If your horse is unregistered and you start going to bigger shows and need a USEF passport of something you'll need a sworn affidavit that you own the horse and some other legal mumbo-jumbo. For schooling shows it doesn't matter.
Good luck and have fun!
