I love my KMT family- they're a great group of riders and I feel so lucky to have been a part of this barn! With the majority of the team being juniors, I enjoyed the "big sis" role and being a mentor as a workin' gal making a go at horse ownership. I have a feeling they're going to have a very successful season!
So why the switch right? Honestly, it's such a personal decision with so many different variables playing in. I would be lying if I didn't think to myself a few evenings this week "let's just go back 'home'." Change is hard, and sometimes it's even harder to know if it's for the better.
I think that Ellie and I can be a great team and I'd like to see if trying a different style of program may help us move down that path.
I have my first lesson with the new trainer on Friday and naturally I'm petrified! What if I'm terrible and she thinks I have no business riding at all... let alone a greenie? I did get word that the asst. trainer "absolutely loves Ellie," which is great. Everyone loves Ellie. Now here's hoping that Ellie and I can find that same connection!
