I feel like crap. I've owned Wendy since April 11, 2012, we moved her from the best (I don't like them- their just popular) stable in the county in June, because they were unwelcoming and were a bit rough with their horses. Then we moved her to Oak Haven, a total dream stable in Indiana. We kept her there from June to May 2013 because I was like the only rider. So we moved her to Boyer Equestrian to train for jumping (since we didn't have a trainer). Now, I want to move her back to Oak Haven because Boyer Equestrian is still under construction and the arena is the size of a carousel, and the pastures are squares the size of a 2 car garage without grass.

Eventually I want to ride my horse down our little country road. It's really pretty with green pastures and birds singing and cattle grazing and even the occasional goose on a pond.

His pen is a barbed wire fence will it hold him if he were to get excited? How should I handle that situation? Also do you think people will be curtious enough to slow down and not honk at us?
