I completely understand. I've done it on a smaller scale with our own horses. I'm tired and burned out. I too just want to enjoy life, be able to go on vacation and not worry about 20+ horses on the property at home. And, maybe just go on a trail ride. That is part of the reason for the dispersal. I too will be sorry to see you not training any more as you are wonderful at what you do, but I understand. I do hope that you'll still be around making your opinions known!

I think it's great that you back off while you still love the horses. You can do more for both yourself and them, if not burned out. Honestly don't know how you've done those winters, with so much on your plate, and basically by yourself. You've done one heck of a good job. Now go have fun ;)
Namaste, LunaLisa

Sounds like u r seeking some balance in ur life; good for u it is very neccesary!! Having been out of balance before in my life ... too much work and not enough horses, then too much horse and not enough other stuff!! It is a tough balancing act indeed. Good Luck and remember; that which does not kill us only makes us stronger!!

Avoiding burnout is such a big thing and finding that balance is so important. My brief foray into training while working a full-time night shift resulted in a lot of pain and stress, and ultimately some serious medical problems that put the every plan on halt and I'm still recovering in some ways. I'd not wish that on anyone and it is a healthy sign that you realize that something has to change so it can be the best for you and for your life :).

I am feeling better already... the next 5 months are gonna be crazy crazy crazy with show horses, selling the herd off and preparing the farm and house for sale while attending shows and foaling out mares and fullfilling breeding obligations as well as getting ready to move... I will have to do some work at my parents farm to get the accomodations up to my standards for the horses and build a paddock for Dan... BUT I have a plan and am working towards it :) And I because I know there will be relief...it makes a big difference. I was up a 7 today, working online, out by 9:30, got four worked, had an apt in town for me, then one for a horse at the vet clinic for a repro exam for a client, then home, quick snack and back out in the arena...its 9:30PM , got in 15 min ago and am just making my supper. And I wonder why I'm burnt out?? LOL Every day is the same... NOT a healthy balance at all. lol

I'll bet if we all listed the multiple injuries we've sustained over the years, it would sound like that of those NFL players who hobble around in their retirement. (Not making fun, just relating my own experience!)


You got that right! We need to tell those guys to Walk it Off! But they are guys, and well., women are tougher, or maybe just hard headed! :D

I don't think I could go back to boarding... that would drive me crazy... but going from 40 to manage to 5 would be a real break LOL I gues I'll be kinda boarding since the horses will be at my parents, but I do what I want with them and do all the work, so its like having them on my own farm really. And they have lots of hay land and the eqiupment to cut it :)
