Should I stay or should I leave?
So, my horse is at a barn that's about an hour away from me.
They have an amazing trainer, a smaller indoor, cross country course, huge outdoor, and its at the very low rate of $200 a month. But I have found a barn closer to me. Its $300 a month and I have to clean his stall but it has a HUGE outdoor and 2 indoors, very nice stalls and rolling hills of pasture. It's about 10 minutes from me and I could be out there every day. Where he's at now I only see him twice a week. My choice would've easily been the one closer but;
He's went from my moms, to a barn 15 minutes from me, to a barn 20 minutes, to where he's at now. It was not my choice to move him from the barn he was at before but I couldn't afford the $400 boarding fee when my hours at work got cut. I feel bad from moving him from place to place. Also, the trainer is helping me get his confidence up with jumping. I want what's best for him but I'm also going insane from not being around him. I could really use some words of advice. I feel like I'm a bad owner for wanting to move him when he's already settled.
Life is about doing something you love and never giving up.
