Recapping 2019

I had many great horsey experiences in 2019!  I am really pleased with how the year went overall; nothing is ever perfect, but both horses are sound, happy, and healthy, which is really what matters to me. Some of my 2019 goals were met easily or with lots of hard work, and a few of them were utter fails haha.  C'est la vie! Let's recap! Happy, health, sound Both mares are doing well in this regard!  Dreamy will be 29 this year, and while she definitely shows signs of her age at times, she overall looks and acts much younger than she really is!  Ellie has really matured this year, filling out as well as mentally becoming more comfortable in her own skin.  As she will be eight this year, I feel like we have moved through the baby phase. having this photo shoot was definitely a highlight of 2019! Continue lessons with Beth and Babette This goal was met and then some!  I took almost weekly dressage lessons with Beth and monthly jump lessons with Babette. Thanks to the

Lendon Gray clinic

My longtime dressage idol is Lendon Gray. I was lucky to have the opportunity to ride with her August 21-22, 2009 at Brookfield Corner Farm in Brookfield, NH. This farm is just under an hour from the house and is run by a wonderful family.

I was so beside myself to actually get a chance to ride with Lendon! I was riding both days with the owner of the farm, a woman named Janet. When I rolled in on Saturday, all I could hear was screaming from the indoor. OH BOY, I thought. I am going to love this!

Well, I was wrong. :( Of course, I was thrilled for the experience, but it did not go exact as I had hoped. To Be Continued.....
