I do NOT heart New York

In fact, I really fucking hate New York.

But it looks like we're being relocated rather promptly. So does anyone have any leads on good barns, show venues, and, oh I don't know, a fucking house to live in in the area of Marion?

That's all I can manage right now. I'll give a long, ranting, detailed, expletive-filled post in a day or two. In the meantime, please tell me there's at least one blogger in the area that wants to be friends.

Anyone? Anyone at all?

  4. Oh that's really up there. I am sorry to hear you have to move. I hate to tell you if you don't like the snow it gets bad up there. Especially the lake front conditions. I have a friend who's parents live near there.

    Best wishes. I look forward to hearing all about it.

  5. Marion is in the same county as where my grandmother lives! I'd be happy to ask her if she knows of any houses; she used to be a teacher so she knows a lot of folks :-)

    1. That would be AMAZING. We know no one in that area--all of Hubby's family lives much farther south.

  6. Shoot, I'm so sorry. :( I Googled hoping it was closer to me but it isn't.

    We have a lot of family friends in the Canandaigua area, which is really quite nice. None of them horsey, but all great people. We often visit them in the summer - I'll let you know if we're going this year.

    1. I thought I was going to be able to do the 4/12 CT, but Hubby doesn't even think we'll be here that long.

  9. Oh no! And here I was hoping we'd run into each other at some stuff this spring.

  11. I'm so sorry that you are being uprooted and have to move :(. My inlaws are in Rochester, so I am a little familiar with the area. Marion is 30 min from Victor which is where the big Stuart HT are, and an hour for Geneseo for the GVRDC HT, not to mention 4 hours from the big NY events like Millbrook and Fitch's. I don't think there is a huge eventing contingent out that way but they are there. I went to GVDRC last year and I know there were a lot of locals. I have a friend out that way who has horses and knows a lot of folks that way. I'd be happy to ask her for info. You should also try posting on the Area 1 page for suggestions. It's a very active bulletin board and pretty friendly.

    Also, if you're wondering whose giving you all these suggestions, I own Dark Jewel Designs Browbands. SprinklerBandit can vouch for me! I'm not some random weirdo. If you want more info of what I know of the area or want me to ask my friend, feel free to email me at amelia.pitts@yahoo.com. You can message me through my Dark Jewel Designs FB page too. I'm actually quite excited to possibly meet you and the famous Bobby!!

  12. My Dad grew up in Rochester which appears to be right next door, but that was a while ago now... He's somewhat in touch with the area though, so I'm not sure if he knows anyone there now. Will ask if he's got any tips for you! Sucks....but maybe I'll see you at an Area I event sometime??
