Front of the barn.
Kathy and I have been waiting till we got a little closer to Aug 1st, to let all of you know about our big adventure. But first you should probably hear the story about how this all came about.
This pasted January, while we were in Tucson Az at the rodeo, where Kathy was selling her art and the Cowboy Man Bar, One of my students, who live there, took us around to a few barns in the area to see if we could drum up any training business. This barn, Harmony Boarding Stables, was a barn that Jan, my student, use to be in. She introduced us to Leslie, the owner of the barn, and we talked about coming back in the summer and putting on some sort of demonstration for the barn. Well time when by and I was just about to call Leslie to set something up when, Leslie calls me. She wanted to know if we would be interested in moving our training program to Tucson, and wanted to know if we would be interested in leasing her barn?
We have made a few trips to Tucson to see the barn and meet with some of the boarders. We love the area and the barn, so we decided it would be good for our program and would put both me, and Kathy, in front of a lot of people, and we hope that we will be able to help them with their horses.
Looking thru the barn.
The barn it self will hold 20 horses and we are hoping that we can get another 10 horses outside. It has a couple of round pens for training as well as a nice arena and turnout area. We will be living above the barn, which I think is very cool.
Some folks have been asking if I will be coming back to this area to work with horses and do clinics. The answer is yes. I already have a horse scheduled to come to Tucson from Silver City New Mexico for training. It's only about a 4 hour drive from here to Tucson, so not really that far. We want to invite all of you to come see us in Tucson. We take control of the barn Aug 1st.
Kathy and I are very excited about the future with the barn. I will continue to write my blog on the adventures there and what we are doing and learning.
If you come to my website to read this blog, www.mackieredd.com you will notice that as of today, I am putting up information on the barn..
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
