I'm confused right now. I don't know if I'm moving the way I should be, I'm not sure if my trainer is helping me to get there. I love her, she and her husband are a great team. But I have some things I'm just not getting. Am I not getting them because they aren't able to guide me? Or am I not getting them because I'm not getting them?
Also, I have a full time job, a 6 year old, and a husband that travels frequently. I hate that I get put on a guilt trip when I have to cancel a lesson. I can't make horses my number one responsibility. They have to fall behind the family and the job.
Another thing is the barn was exclusively an adult barn with a beginner lesson program for young kids. It was a very serious come to learn and have fun place. Now the young kids are teenagers, which I don't mind, but they are really bringing the drama to the barn between the boys and the cat fights and they are draining the life out of it. I don't know. I'm at a loss right now and the biggest thing is, my trainer WILL take it personally if I go elsewhere so it's not a decision I can make lightly.
I recieved an e-mail from the gentle man I am interested in training with. He remembers my horse from the fireworks show. "I remember right he was a good mover just needs to get broke for what we want in AQHA shows"
"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"
