I need assistance.
And I has news.
Its the coolest most bestest thing that has happened to me yet and I'm esplodies all over with all the excitement.
I'm moving to Florida.
Where there are horses. and eventing. and beaches. and sun. and horses. and showing. and sun. and beaches.
The two best things about Jacksonville?
Voldosta is less than 2 hours (1.55) away. Stacey and Klein mare and le Moch live there and I WILL be trailering to ride with them and such. Often.
Ocala is just over 2 hours (2.13). OCALA bitches. OCALAAAA LA LA LA!!! The eventing epicenter of Florida. The O'Conners farm is close-ish. There are tons of trainers less than two hours away from where I will be living and OH EM GEE ALL THE EXCITES I CANT CONTAIN THYSELF
I've been holding in the news for a while because I wasn't quite sure what was happening until recently, but we just bought plane tickets to go visit apartments and barns for mid October.
Having a little bit if a hard time finding eventing barns in Jacksonville. Apparently everyone is a Hunter Jumper, but I've found 2 barns that cater to eventing and H/J and two barns that are exclusively H/J but am hoping they won't mind an eventer n the mix.
Not partial to associating myself with the hunter princesses since they can be catty and judgmental but I'd rather explore my options than write off a nice barn with good care simply because they are hunters.
I Loathe boarding in general but Jacksonville is not a farm community and I don' think we can afford to rent a farmette at the moment.
So. Preese, if anyone knows anyone that events in Jacksonville, I need assistance finding a barn.
Right now I am too excited and overwhelmed with planning to type much more, but that is the gist of the excitement.
