SJ1289- I know the barn where you board now and know the barn where you are going. The two do not even compare. Great choice to go to where you are going!
The barn where SJ1289 boards now was nice- a long, long time ago. I showed ponies there in the 70s and I think it needed upgrading then. If there is any turnout left, I doubt it is much more than a dirt paddock. The barn is surrounded by a highway. It sounds like her current trainer and barn manager are absentee but she pays for complete full board. Choosing to have full board does not mean SJ1289 does not know how to care for horse.
The barn she is moving to is owned by a US Olympic rider, has about 100 acres so her horse will have a lot of turnout, has rings and jump fields, at least two indoors and several professional instructors. If she is paying for full board, she might as well benefit from a world class operation.
