Today was a pretty eventful day for me informational wise. I went to a new tack/pet store where I learned of a boarding facility near my home. I knew it was there, but they never advertised, so didn’t really know much about it.
It turns out that this facility is reasonably priced for outside board at 180/mo for pasture board. They train in cross country, jumping and dressage. I talked to the owner today, and she confirmed to me that they have space available, and she really wanted to meet me!! She is away at a show this weekend, but will be back on Monday, so, after my lesson Monday evening; I am going over to the stable to have a look.
So we all know what this means…………………………….
Yes, it’s true, we were going to wait a year to buy a horse, but this boarding place seems to be too good to be true (thus far), and I simply can’t wait another minute. My plan is to buy a horse that is suitable for me, board, get our place up and running which we were going to do within a year, but now we wouldn’t be as rushed to get it done.
Okay, I just had to let it all out. Anyone have any advice, things to look for at the new boarding stable?
