I think I found a barn! :D

Please give me you honest opinion! It's only like 30min away from my house and the lessons are $40/hour! I'm going to check it out next month, so I'll get pics!

Looks awesome! You can't tell everything by a website, so I'm glad you're going to check it out for yourself.

WOW thats a lot! lol Well I'm going out there next Sat so, I'm excited. I also asked people about it on another form and this girl, from my same area, goes to another stable. She said she's heard some bad stuff about the trainers, so I pmed her and I'm waiting to see what she says back. I emailed the barn and asked them what times the had lessons that sat, if any, cause I wanted to check them out. So I hope all goes well!

I just checked my messages on the other board after I tyed that last message and this is what she said.

"ummmmm... about the trainers, I don't want to spread rumors or anything, but they got their own barn because they always had complaints about the other stables and stuff like that (they always sued [sp, i suck at spelling] them). There really nice and all, there's just stuff that a lot of people at my barn have a problem with.

Sommertime Farms is like an hour away from ...... I actually live in ...... and it's already a long drive for me. There is no website because we just switched to this barn like a year or so ago (she didn't have her own before). She's really a really good trainer though."

Sommertime seems like a great place, but an hour is to much for me, espically since I don't have a car or job yet!

Don't let her intimidate you on a barn. Get lots of opinions, you never know what happened or might have happened. She may have been involved with one but they had a falling out, but the trainer was still good. I'd definitely still try it out. Never take just one person's opinion on something so important, let yourself decide if the place is right or wrong. The worst that can happen is your down 40 bucks but you see some pretty horses.

honestly, the suing part sounds weird. Its pretty tough to sue someone as they normally make you sign liability.

Call too, you'll get a faster response :]
