Let me get back to you -- I'm trying to shift jobs and actually get the land for the retreat center I want to start purchased, but I'm just not sure how long that's going to take me.
I want to make sure that it's worth your while to come and I'm worried about making a commitment yet -- am feeling like I don't have quite enough in place here, yet.
Am not sure if the property we're working on would be right for this -- it could be great, eventually, but there isn't any infrastructure there for horses at the moment, and while my farm is getting better, I'm not set up here for having guest horses here.
I'm meeting a handful of people who have training/breeding/boarding facilities -- it's possible that we could arrange something.
But I'm not having an "oh, yes, I know how to make it work!" set of ideas yet...
So let's not lose the idea, but I'm feeling the need to let it ride a little bit as I continue to get to know the area and get my world settled a bit -- things move more slowly here than I anticipated!
But -- this would be helpful, so I have a sense of what you need to make it worth it for you -- how would you want to set up a clinic (how long, etc.) and how many people would you need? Would it work to have Circe be your guinea pig here and then see if we could set you up doing private lessons with other students where their horses are? That will help me think about how we could get something happening.
