The last 2 weeks have been pretty eventful. Not only did I get my trailer, but I was also gearing up to move Spot to a new barn! I liked my old barn and the people there, but I ended up finding a place where Spot could be out 24/7 and the footing in the arenas was better and more consistent. I think Spot will greatly appreciate the increased amount of turnout! Also, last but not least, I would be saving a good $125 on board. Saving $, more turnout, and awesome facilities? Score!
This past weekend (on my birthday actually) we got ready to move all of my stuff over to the new barn. While packing up I realized I have wayyy too much horse stuff. I think a spring cleaning will need to be done here soon. Eeek!
After all my junk was sorted at the new place, we went back to grab Spot for our maiden voyage in the new trailer! At first Spot was like , “Oh helllll no” which is strange for her because she normally just hops in. After some coaxing and lowering the trailer a bit she ended up hoping on and it was business as usual. I’m actually quite surprised how much room the trailer has because we trailered my friend’s big 16.2 TB as well and he had plenty of head room. Another win!
Spot got turned out in one of the all weather TOs when we got there and boy was she excited to be finally turned out after about 1.5 months of no play time.
The next day I hopped on her for a quick ride and she had definitely settled in. Acted like she had been there forever! The fancy footing they have in the arenas is quite nice and Spot felt really good during our ride. As a cool down we hacked out on the small xc/hunt course and took a spin around the GP sized jump arena as well. Of course, this would be nothing without pictures!
I’m definitely excited to be at the new place and the other boarders seem nice as well. Once the weather isn’t as wet I’m excited to go play around on the XC course. Maybe we’ll even conquer Spot’s large dislike for water crossings too!
