I know I still owe you all a write up of what happened at Chatt Hills, and I promise I will do so soon! I’m just feeling a little down and stressed about everything that is happening in my life right now so, while I had a ton of fun and learned so much at Chatt, writing about a less than stellar result is not really what I want to be doing. To be honest, all I really want to do is bury my head in the sand until this stupid wedding is over and then maybe I’ll consider coming back to the land of the living.
I moved Gus to our new barn the night after Chatt Hills. I’m sure he had no idea what was going on with all of the trailering but he ended up settling in pretty well. They have a very different turn out policy so that has taken Gus some getting used to!
The place is beautiful though and all the horses are healthy and happy and Gus has already made lots of friends.
I have not been out as much as I normally would be, see wedding stress above, but we have had a couple of good rides that have included exploring the property. This place is no where near as large as my last barn and has really only one “trail” but it’s enough for hacking at least.
I’m also very lucky in that the dogs are allowed to come out! How do I keep getting so lucky? Harley made a new friend when I brought her out. She is obsessed.
Tomorrow I have my first official lesson with the new trainer, LT. She schooled us at Chatt and we did a clinic with her so I know I like her style. I’m really looking forward to getting back into a normal schedule though!
