So when I get down to brisbane first thing is i'm going to attempt to transfer my part time fast food job to down there so I have something to start with. Then I'm going to flood everyone with tonnes of resumes looking for full time work. Then when I have time I will be travelling to horse aggistment places and viewing them, finding out prices. Most of them are going to be a half hour drive away, some 45, some 15.
When I find a good aggistment that I can afford then if they don't have a waiting list I will let my family know and we will get Smarty transported down. Until then mum has agreed to look after her and if anything wrong happens ring me. I have to debate whether or not I should try and get someone else to ride her while im gone. I was thinking of maybe letting an old riding instructor borrow her instead. She'd be well looked after, but everyone would ride her and who knows if she could come back being hard in the mouth, not listening to the cues I taught her. I could get a friend to ride her but again, she'd forget my cues.
I'm really nervous about it all, the idea of living 5 hours away for who knows how long from smarty. It could be a week it could be a couple months. But I have to because there just is not enough job opportunities here, I'm already only gettin 12 hours a week. So I guess anyone has had similar things? I am really nervous. Excited, but I admit I've been crying too. The idea of leaving all my friends, my horse for a time....
Who's had a similar experience they could maybe share?? Any tips?
I will be moving to Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Anyone here live around that area maybe??
