Question Washington riding coaches!

I followed with great interest another thread on this website about a rider who just completed their training to be a riding coach.
http://www.bmwlt.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22540

I'm very interested in doing this myself and have been doing research online to learn how to get started with the rather long process. Are there any coaches on this board from the greater Seattle area? Or western half of the state? I would love to chat with someone from the area who has some knowledge of the local opportunities and avenues to pursue this.

Thanks,

Jed,
I have a friend who is a wa state (Evergreen) coach. I could get his email or other contact info if needed. I do believe they have some sort of height restriction at about 6' 5" so the students can hear you. I hope they will allow an exception in your case!

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
