Getting back into being a BM?
A few years ago I had the absolute amazing opportunity to start my own barn. A perfect facility opened, a deal was made, I was able to bring in clients quickly enough that I didn't have to make too much of a risk. Unfortunately, I brought a "friend" in to be the co-BM and it ended in disaster.
Fast forward a few years on, and I still have old clients asking when I'll give lessons again, when I'll get back into the barn "society" and I've just pushed it off that I don't need/want the drama.
Truth is, I miss it. I miss the hard work (I know, I'm crazy) I miss the community, I miss the horses, the good, the bad and the ugly.
It looks as though an opportunity for a small barn (20+ stalls) may have come up. My heart and my "gut" want to get back into it... but I'm still kind of gun shy about the whole situation. I know at least a dozen clients that would come immediately. I would also be able to bring my new filly in and work her.
Financially I can do it. Time wise I can do it. I just need an extra dose of courage I guess.
Go for it!!!! next year you might be sorry you didn't.
GOOD LUCK TO YOU
Do it, otherwise you'll regret it.
Go for it. Come be ours, we need a new one....Haha. But in all seriousness- follow your heart, its the only way in life your sure to be happy.
Thanks for the encouragement. I spoke with the property owner again this evening and I'm going back out for another look at the property on Sunday afternoon.
I guess after Sunday I'll make my decision. I'm getting a little bit excited! The property has a large indoor arena, outdoor arena, turnouts plus a pasture and hay field. The PO mentioned about leasing the hay field but I'm not so sure about that.
It's never too late to follow your dreams-I say-Go for it!
It's fun, but tough too. I work full time as well so it will be interesting.
I'm a little confused... Will you own the barn or just work for the barn?
