Hello, I am Dorothy Whiteman. I can’t remember a time when I did not love horses. Growing up in the greater Seattle area, my access to horses was limited to watching other riders or drivers. I went to Central Washington State College – now University – and earned a degree in Education. I came to Elma to teach, and bought my first horse. I married Ron, raised two boys, earned a Masters Degree in Education, and taught for nearly 40 years before retiring. Outside of school, I rode dressage, held a trainer’s license for race horses in both Washington and Oregon, and drove Draft horses. After retirement, I pursued a second career as a trainer of miniature driving horses and teacher of driving students. Ron and I have a small farm outside of the town of Elma where we grow our own hay, drive our horses, and love our life. We drive in both the breed rings, and at CDEs and ADS pleasure shows. I look forward to continuing my friendship with Chimacum Tack, which started more than 15 years ago when I bought my first pleasure harness. I hope to help you learn all you need to know to love this sport as much as I do.
