It's official. Kathy and I signed the lease on the barn in Tucson Az. Saturday we met with about half of the boarders and introduced ourselves to them. As you can imagine they had lots of questions about what we are planning on doing in the future with the barn. We met for about an hour with them and I think it went well.
We had the chance to see some folks that we met in January when we were in Tucson for the rodeo, Jeep and Star. They are kicking around the idea of moving their travel trailer to the barn and giving us a hand when they can.
I'm going to keep writing my blog, if that's ok with everyone, 5 days a week or as close as I can get. We plan on training outside horses, giving riding lessons, horsemanship lessons, clinics and demonstrations once we get in and settled. There are 500,000 people that live in Tucson. Of course not all of them are horse people, but there are a ton of horse people there. It's going to be the biggest town that Kathy and I have ever lived in, so it will be a challenge for sure.
I still have work to do here before we make the jump. I will finish up the Stallion this month and the Gray horse's owner has committed to another 30 days. That means he will be here thru July.
I took the Gray out for a long ride outside the arena and he did pretty good. He did not shy at much but had his own ideas about where he went and how fast he went but we will just keep working on those things. He is really doing better and better everyday.
Andrea, the mom of the little mustang we had here, tell me that Bitsy is getting better with her cold but it's just taking time. Andrea said she rode her, just a little bit this weekend and Andrea could not believe how good she was, she's a different horse, she said.
Will try and keep you updated with info on what the heck I'm doing with horses and music.
