So, I wrote last that Miss Muffin moved barns at the beginning of June and was doing well.  Last night my trainer was out to ride her, I'd been telling her how great she'd been (with the exception of our last lesson when her tootsies were much too long).  She was skeptical, and Maggie is never the horse you really want to ride at the end of the day.  But, she was magnificent last night, I mean she rode awhile and asked if I'd drugged her (she was joking).  She actually ended her ride early because she'd done everything she wanted.  She'll draw up new plans for her training now.

 

Nothing changed but her locale.  She's either very sensitive to her environment, or she's very sensitive to ME in her environment.  I'm so happy, my girl is finally on her way!!!

Yay! Two happy campers. That's how it's supposed to be, but it doesn't always work out. So glad you've landed on your feet (All six of them!!).

That's such great news!!  Horses can definitely sense when we are tense or unhappy.  Finding the right barn is just as important for the person as it is for the horse  :o)  So happy for you both!!

Yep. I've never gone wrong moving my Maggie.  I'm no philosopher, however, if I listen to my girl, she'll take us where we need to go.  She never lies or steers me wrong.

It sounds like you did the right thing by moving.
