Hello from Washington
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.
I'm from Seattle! Currently living on Vashon Island!!!!!!
If you want to talk trainer talk let me know!
Hope to see pictures soon!
I live in Bellevue. I have lived in the Seattle area all my life.
So many cool people in western washington... And I'm in lowly north idaho! Poo!
Anywho, welcome. Hope to see your posts

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?
Thanks for the welcomes that came in while I was responding to Klassic :)
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?
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!
