Firecreek you hit the nail on the head..that really DROVE it home for me. I did miss the horses of course, but I did NOT want to come home. I was plotting my escape from the Puerto Vallarta airport , and not because I was scared to get on the plane lol Then...when I got home...it didn't even feel like home.
There are a lot of smaller factors in the decision but the biggest ones are that to run it as a full time training operation on my own just isn't feasible. Its a very nice farm, there is lots of people who want to board here to use the arena and I am sure the facility could be full just doing that and it would be great as a side, or supplementary income to help pay for the costs of the arena ect ....but too hard the way I am doing it.
I probably won't officially advertise the farm until June with the realtor..wait till the house renos are done and it dries up and greens up for some good photos But I welcome any interest in the meantime!

Come visit us to see the farm and horses for sale. We are selling the farm and disbursing all but a few of our horses. Prices are super low and all offers will be considered. A good home more important than price!

Just know that you may come back to training horses a little later in life with stronger support and on your terms. In the meantime, ENJOY your life, family, friends & horses!

This is a hard life...I also find myself soul searching about how long I want to continue down this road. I may decide that I want to downsize to make life easier as I am not getting any younger...
