Need 2nd Barn Home in SC... any advice?
Hello wonderful COTH family!
I've posted on this subject before but I am again hoping to get some recommendations in the matter. As you may remember, my SO located to Myrtle Beach, SC this pact October. I have the luxury of being able to travel between SE PA and SC but while I am down south I hate to take time off riding. At home in PA my close friend is a trainer and I am lucky to be able to ride her greenies and sale horses. I would love to find a barn down south where I am able to do the same, or as COTH has suggested in the past take some lessons to establish a relationship. At the very least I would like to find somewhere I could take some lessons so that while I am away from home I do not lose my riding legs entirely.
COTH has been kind enough to suggest two facilites in the past: Justintime Farm in Nichols and Red Gate Stable in Myrtle Beach. They both seem lovely but Justintime is well over an hour from Myrtle Beach and when I messaged Red Gate they said they were not interested. At minimum I would really like to take a few lessons to get some saddle time and I am willing to get creative (helping out with grooming etc) for any trainers who might appreciate having an extra hand for a few days.
Any thoughts, leads, or suggestions would be so very helpful.
