If you think you could progress more with your riding at the new place. I would tell the old barn that you are taking a break for a month. Ride at the new barn, make sure it's everything you want it to be - and then leave the old barn under good terms.

If you leave well, you can always go back. Don't leave because Amy Becky, Cindy did D, E and F events. Just be reasonable and polite and explain. Or lie, and say new barn is closer etc.

No problem. Just take a break without lying, so you it makes sense and doesn't annoy if you go onto leave your current place.

Like I can't get there - if your new barn is closer.

Or if you are more blunt, 'hey I won't be out for a month'.

Sometimes making changes is just one more step in growth.
People here have given you lots of good comments.
Good luck to you, Kiddo!

I think it could be a great move for you. I learned to ride when I was 17 and rode at the same barn for 5 years. As years went by, the barn continuously got larger and larger and now is a massive hunter/jumper barn with around 90 horses. I was lessoning with 7 people in a group lesson, and the quality of lessons just went down because they bit off more than they could chew. I was scared to leave because it was the only place I'd ever ridden and I had learned a lot; but when it came down to it, I was paying a lot of money to ship my horse to a barn for an hour and jump around over show jumps. I left and started boarding my horse elsewhere a few months ago, and I couldn't be happier =] It's always a little scary leaving your comfort zone, but sometimes you just need to man up and do what's best for you.
