Moving Barns ... A Little Apprehensive

So I've made the deciscion to cut the cord and move barns with my OTTB... I've talked to the owner of the new barn and I'm super excited to go. They have an arena, and a round pen, and all my old horsy friends have horses there. I'm excited to show, and take lessons from an actually cert. trainer.

But I'm a little worried about what I'll miss from my old barn. I love the barn I'm currently at. I love the people, who are almost like family. I love the horses - who I can ride whenever I want. I love the trails - miles and miles of them in all directions.

I wouldn't be moving except for a few little things that have started bothering me... like the fact that I hardly ever have anyone to ride with. Or that all my best horsy friends have essentially boycotted my barn after the whole strangles thing... and that goes for the farriers too.

I don't want to leave, but I want to, if that makes sense...

I've still gotta work up the courage to tell my B.O. that I'm leaving... and I admit I'm not looking forward to it at all.

Ah well. In the long run, I know it's worth it. There is so much more Nikki and I have to learn, and so much this new barn can offer us. I just hope I don't inadvertantly burn bridges in the proccess.
