Any suggestions for FB groups? I found Backcountry Horsemen of Washington's page but they're not very friendly to asking questions. The chapter closest to me is the Tahoma one and they weren't very friendly to me on FB either. I got the vibe that if you aren't 70yo and already know everyone they don't want to hear from you.

yeah, we could go to facebook, but the idea is to find out from who is HERE, which are from out area. besides, forum rules prohibit posting links to facebook.


ok, here's a question:

have any of yoiu Washington folks made the ride from the North Cascades highway (near Rainy Pass), down into Stehekin, and stayed at the ranch?

The WA FB groups that I have seen are nothing but drama...

I haven't heard of that ride Tiny, but it sounds awesome. I'd love to do overnight rides eventually.

I'm not suggesting leaving this for FB, would just be nice to have some other options for hearing about local events and such.

Yes, from HERE would be better, but thought I would throw that out there. :)

Yep, there can be LOTS of drama. I have learned to read around it and close those posts so I can find other stuff that is useful and important.
I am VERY drama free, and those types drive me batty, so I just ignore them. :)

Nor was I suggesting leaving. :) And totally was thinking like you are- looking for an easier way to get local events. I can PM you them links if you want them, since someone said I can't post them here. :)

I'm from Castle Rock and I ride a QH and an Appy! (: I usually ride bareback, but when I don't I ride western. I ride on the trails at home, in my yard, in the field, and at the barn where my horses is boarded (Green Horse Arena), and sometimes at Happy Trails when I go to gaming shows.

I'm in Snohomish and have my Fjord pasture-boarded nearby. He's just being started under saddle but I want to start trail riding him when he's ready. I am trailerless for now but have some small trails nearby that I haven't yet explored. I'd love to meet other horse people in the area who like to hit the trails, as I'm new to horse ownership up here (from CA originally) and don't know any good trails. :)

I'm also from CA. I moved up here so I could be closer to the mountains and have land to keep a horse on. How far are you from the Lord Hill trails?

I haven't checked the mileage, but I'm off Three Lakes so not terribly far. :) Lord Hill is the only trail system I'm at all familiar with up here, and it's gorgeous, I just need a trailer!

I'm in the Redmond/Duvall area as well! Not sure how long I will stay here for though. Dad has the CA bug again.

Anyway...I ride TWH's and a half Arab/TWH. I ride trails. Plenty nice ones right behind my house. I am learning to ride both western and english at the moment.

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.
