First post of the new year!!! First off, happy New Year everyone!! Hope everyones night was awesome, and everything it was expected to be. I unfortunately have had a stomach virus since New Years Eve, so I was not a happy camper. And because I’ve been so weak feeling from the virus, I haven’t been able to get back to Libby. As you can imagine, I miss her so much! But with me being away from the situation at the barn, I’ve been able to reflect on what I really want from my barn, and I’ve kinda-sorta made a decision as far as moving goes.
I’ve come to the realization that my trainer is not going to change who she is, and what her values are just because her one student is a bit unhappy. Shes not going to leave her family in Palatka to make her home base somewhere closer to the Gainesville/Ocala area just for me, and shes not going to start up a boarding/training facility, just because I don’t like where I’m at now. And its really not fair of me to ask all those things of her anyways. So I’ve made the decision that after the show, I want to really look for other places to move to. I’ve been given a couple names of people to contact in the area, so once I get back I’ll have some names to go off of. The only problem with this whole decision, is I have no idea how to tell my trainer without breaking our relationship. I have a feeling shes going to take it to heart and be upset, which is the last thing I want to happen. If any of you have any tips on that, I’d love to hear it!
Other then that I have nothing too new due to not being with my horse. Hopefully I’ll be able to get up there either later today, or early tomorrow. Just wanted to give an update to everyone for the beginning of the new year!
