I have given it a lot of thought, and although I'll miss the people and horses at the barn, I can't stay with my trainer anymore and waste my money. There are a few good people at the barn that wish to find another trainer to get the school flowing healthily with students again (as most stay a year or two like me and then leave, unsatisfied with my trainer), but they are still figuring how to replace her without causing a big Hoo Ha.
Anyhow, tomorrow I am going to visit a barn that is 4 times the distance and takes 3 times the time to get there, but I am confident about it. I've gotten good feed back about it and I believe I'll actually be able to gain a lot of experience and form a good solid base in dressage there. They have good facilities and it's a lively barn with cliniques and outings. Exactly what I want. I just hope it's as great as it seems.
I will post pictures of it tomorrow. I just hope it will make a positive enough impression on my father so he thinks it's worth the extra gas. Although I prefer riding less often if need be for proper instruction. He does however understand that I can't and shouldn't waste my money on lessons with her anymore.
