    Hello from Washington

    Hello Everyone!
    My name is Cole. I grew up riding in a small town in central California. I got my seat under me riding English, and some lower level dressage--but there was a big state part just down the road from where we kept our boys and I spent most of my time running all over the trails out there. My QH gelding liked running down the beach better than running round the show ring, and so did I :)
    I moved up to Seattle after high school and have spent the last 8 years in the city--which has done a lot to show me just how good I had it growing up! I'm finally getting geared up to move out somewhere where I can get back to what I love to do. My partner and I are looking at the Carnation/Duvall area--or possibly Vashon Island--for those who know the area.
    Till then, I'm doing a lot of reading to brush up my knowledge. I'm likely to do a whole lot of lurking around here, but wanted to introduce myself to the community.

    Thanks! And yes, I might want to pick you're brain a bit if you don't mind! I'm trying to figure out which parts of the island might be good for a trail bum like myself to set up--and if we wind up on Vashon I'll probably be looking for a low key stable to get involved (lessons and/or a part time lease) with while I get re-accustomed to riding before I start horse shopping for myself. Do you have any suggestions in either area?

    Welcome to the forum. There are a number of members that are in WA-more might be chiming in soon. Hope you find a good place to indulge in the horse activities you like. Western? English? Something else?

    Thanks!
    I lean towards English in a loose sort of way. That's what I grew up with, so I'm more comfortable in English saddles. I'm mostly interested in trails, possibly endurance...although I've been a little intrigued by reigning of late. Who knows what I'll end up doing? It's all just an excuse for working with horses as far as I'm concerned :)

    Hi from Maple Valley!

    Only caveat with Vashon Island is that transporting a horse could get to be a bit expensive if you ever have any plans of competing at shows or trailering anywhere.

    But you know that, eh?

    Yes indeed! I don't really have a ton of interest in shows, but the cost of transporting myself too and from the island is certainty a point I'm considering!
