No... not that kind! Barn owners...
After having two incredibly successful weekends, working with my barn owner (also a trainer) and Lexi, I have seen significant improvement in her attitude, and understanding of what is being asked of her.
I will write another post, explaining what 'issues' I was dealing with, and what we have done to surmount them, but I am absolutely amazed at her improvement.
It's all thanks to my barn owner. She is one of those selfless people, who truly ENJOYS working with horses.
When I had my TB on lease, she would bring her in to give her a warm mash and let her sleep in a warm stall. Just because...
Don't get me wrong. She does NOT have spare time on her hands. She has around 25 horses on the property, yet she MAKES the time. She believes in passing on her knowledge, so that other people can train horses, the way she is able to.
I'm curious as to what kind of relationships people have with their barn managers. Are they a deal breaker when choosing a boarding barn? Share your stories!
Today... I dub thee National Barn Owner Appreciation Day :)
