How Do you Start A Business?
That Might Probably Fail?
This business was operating about 10 years ago. That is how I found it. It is named "New Beginning Stables" I took my daughter there because her diagnosis is Austim. This place was able to give horseback riding lessons to children with disabilities. Several years ago, the county took away this kind of funding, from children with special needs. So, the stables went downhill.
However, before it went downhill, I started to help. I helped the children, and sort of became "one of the family" with the owners. The pictures you see here are pictures of what the stables were like before they went downhill. One the top right side is a little boy with problems walking. I was holding the horse when the picture was taken. The picture next to that is a picture of parents and their children. The next picture is the sign " New Beginnings Stables" The picture next to that is me with my daughter on my horse, whose name was Champ. The picture under those two pictures is a picture of a very sweet pony. She let kids put a hat on her head. The next picture is the way the stables look now. It is the inside of the stables. The picture after that is the inside of the arena.
When the funding ended, they started losing money. When they were losing money it was hard to repair things. People who had kept their horses there started to leave. People who took lesson there started to leave. So, the end was beginning.
The owner got sick and had surgery. I had epilepsy, and had surgery. About two months ago, I went to visit and started talking with the owner. He told me he wished he could start his business up again. Not a large business. Just a small one. Maybe one that could help children with special needs. Now he has no money, and the barn has many things that need to be repaired.
What could we do to start the business up again? Not just for special needs. But also for teaching regular lessons, and boarding horses. How could we ask for help? Could we go into business with someone that might also what to have this kind of business? Maybe like some else could own half the business and we could own half the business. How does that kind of thing happen?
Is there anyway this kind of business could start up again? Please let me know.
