As I have now been in TN for almost a year I have started to question how other people find out about local equestrian events. I am a part of an Area 3 eventers group and I regularly scope out surrounding states but I still feel like I do not know about stuff that is going on. It would be awesome if there was a more central repository for finding out about schooling shows, hunter paces, and other events. Maybe some kind of directory? Obviously I don’t see that happening but boy would it be nice!
For example, there is a hunter pace later next month about an hour away that I probably would have no idea about if I didn’t know someone that is involved in a club in the area. This weekend I will be participating in an Elisa Wallace clinic that I wouldn’t have known about if another fellow blogger hadn’t posted about it.
How do the rest of you guys find out about opportunities in your local area? Do you find out about things through word of mouth? Is there a local organization that helps keep members informed?
I would love to find out about more clinics within reasonable driving distance but I am not sure where else to look for information.
