Please be aware that the website is in the midst of some upgrades. One thing we will be adding is an online store for merchandise! We will offer clothing and more!
Our summer on the farm is/was very busy! So busy that I don’t know if I am coming or going! I’ve thoroughly enjoyed everyone I’ve met and had a blast teaching. It is great to see so many kids wanting to get outside and enjoy the sunshine/fresh air.
Starting September 1st hours for teaching are changing. Previously, I’ve taught seven days a week while running the farm. The pace I set is a pace I cannot keep up with so I am going back to teaching four days a week. As of September 1st I will offer lessons Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays. I haven’t spent as much time with my family as I would like to and I know they would like to see me more than once or twice a year.
In addition to that the farm no longer offers boarding to new/outside people. We are keeping our existing boarders but I am putting a cap as to how many horses we will have on site. In addition to that I will be reducing the number of goats on the farm. Stay tuned for more information.
This year has taught me so much about myself and about what I am able to do. I am excited for the next stage of the farm and hope you all enjoy seeing us grow.
By taking three days off of teaching lessons I plan on taking that time to work and train my horses. My horses need more time than I can currently give them and I need to work with them to get them to the point of either integrating into my lesson program or training them so that I can rehome them.
For all of my efforts I also want/hope/need to start writing and generating income through that area of my life. Earlier this year I made the conscious decision to stop taking medication I’ve been on since I was a teenager. I may go back on that medication at some point, there are things in my life that are worse now that I am living without medication but at the same time I missed my creative side. Right now, I can function and enjoy life without “modification”. There are many thoughts that are trying to hit the page, so to speak, but I want to make sure people understand that I am not against medication, infact, I think medication to help balance anxiety, depression and sleep disorders is very important and often needed. However, the older I get the better I am able to balance my emotions and reactions. I still have ways to go but isn’t that true for most people?
