My horse and I are switching barns, and our first day at the new one is tomorrow! I’m really nervous, because there will be many new people, horses, and trainers. Do you have any tips?

Hi Zoë! Very exciting, moving to a new barn! Don't be afraid to ask questions. Every barn operates in its own way, some prefer you watching when your trainer is schooling your horse, some prefer not. Some will pair your horse up for a paddock buddy, some want you to choose one yourself or prefer individual turnout. Always clean up after yourself, this will keep your barn owner very happy and yourself as well 😊
Be open and excited ! Also you have your best friend moving with you ... you guys will be fine ! And hopefully both happy at the new barn ! Good luck :)
