Exciting News!


I finally found a job!!!  I have been searching since the third week we arrived in KY - middle of June, I believe.  Applied to countless jobs, numerous interviews (in person and phone), and job searched every day...but it paid off.

Monday September 9th is my first day at...

So excited!

Due in part to the new job, I decided to move Riva to the barn where we are boarding our OTTB, Cheers.  He is on full pasture board, but Riva has a stall and is on night turn out for now with one other mare.  While I loved the facilities where we previously had Riva (at Alexis's working student barn), it is a training barn. Because of that, I was limited on when I could ride - no problem while I was job searching, but the new job is 8:30 am - 5 pm.  At the new barn, I can ride anytime and she has more turn out time.

Riva settled right in at her new barn - her stall is the second stall as you enter the barn so she can see outside and all the activity going on (which she loves).  Plus everyone thinks she is lovely and stops to talk with her :) The new barn has a large outdoor arena and a small indoor that is next to the barn with the stalls.  There is area to hack around, the BO's live on the property, and there is a bathroom!  One of my requirements!  Plus it is closer to where we live - about a 10 minute drive.

Cheers and Lex - coming in to work
