Hello...another Wa state newbie

Hi all! I've been lurking for a few months, and finally decided to join and get to know everyone. I currently am learning low level dressage and think I may show/test this winter or early spring. I just started leasing a TB mare, she's lovely, patient and sweet and a little stubborn. I rode hunter/jumper in my teens, gave up to go to college and am now returning to the horse world after a 20 yr break...I hope to make my horse purchase in the next couple of years, as the big four oh approaches

Thanks in advance for all the great advice and support I know Ill recieve here!

Welcome! Whereabouts in WA are you from? I, like cowgirlneigh, am right outside of yakima. Anyways, I know you'll like it here and find insightful information as you begin your journey back into the horse world! :)

just a little side not AQHA13 - my user name is cowgirlnay because my name is Jene` (pronounced Janay), not like the sound a horse makes :) The joke when I was growing up went something like this... "I know why you like horses.." "Oh yeah, why's that?" "Cause you're names Je-nayyyyyy" So, I thought it was appropriate ;)

Thanks for the welcome! How great there are so many of us from Wa here! Im about 30 miles East of Seattle, in the foothills. I do make it into Bellevue pretty often, especially to visit Olsens Tack...any other places you all rec for me to start my search for a used dressage saddle?

I also spend a lot of time east of the mountains....when I need a dose of sunshine

Welcome! I live in Washington too, in Renton.

I can't think of anywhere else to look for a used dressage saddle. I have seen used dressage saddles every once and awhile at the Grange in Issaquah but I wouldn't bet on it. Craigslist is always a good place to look too :).
