So I have to move barns again. I recently switched barns to get some training. I love the trainer and the things I am learning. However, the people that own the barn are in a word... Idiots. My horse is miserable, losing weight, and I am paying for so many extras on top of board its not worth it anymore. But I won't get into that, I could go on forever!
Anyway, due to this incompetence, my trainer has decided to leave for another barn where she also trains. I may have an opportunity to follow her. However, they only turn out for a couple hours in the morning during the week. I just want turnout for my horse all day. He needs it, he wants it, and I want it for him. It is important to me and my selection process.
I am a competent horse person, very knowledgeable, and trained my horse virtually myself. But I really like the help, tips, and having a trainer to school me at shows. I found a facility I REALLY like, turn out all day, ect, but my trainer isn't there.
What would you do? Make your horse happy or make yourself happy? I just don't know if I can look at his face (and stocked up legs) every day because he only got 3 hours of turn out. Suggestions?
