I think you should move your horse to a closer barn, and still do the shows, but trailer your horse up to the barn your at now and do lessons and hang out with your barn friends.
Because you would really be losing out if your couldnt do shows and what not. They are always fun! And you could meet your barn friends at the shows, and ride together there as well.
And even if you couldnt get your pony t the barn your at now every week for lessons if you were to switch barns, then could you possibly ride one of your trainers horses? Because then you could even get a feel for other horses as your said.
Hope this helps. But if it doesnt, im sorry.
Wish you the best of luck!!!
