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.

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 Morgan Dressage Association scholarship, I was also able to attend two clini…

Because we ALL kick our horses to make them move, right????

Watch the video.......no matter what the "truth" really is, I am thinking that there has to be something wrong with a horse owner who kicks a horse to make them move out of the way. Watch the video.....right after the state vet's quote is on the screen (1:10), you can watch the owner of Fair Play Farm (see my past post) KICK AT A HORSE TO MAKE IT MOVE! Seriously? I am sorry, and maybe I am reading too much into things, but if you feel the need to KICK a horse who is just standing in your way and not being aggressive, you are NOT a very good horse person. Again, just my opinion!

  1. So this is a totally random question but do you know if there is any info up yet about the 2010 STB National Show? I'm seriously considering taking Johnny and I want to crunch some numbers to see if I can actually afford it! Thanks!
