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…

PRODUCT REVIEW: Epona Shed Flower Curry

I love this thing!  I am usually a traditionalist and have used a black rubber curry forever.  But last summer when I was purchasing new brushes for Reva's arrival, I decided to try one.  I had admired it for a while, since it is SO cute, but I figured nothing could work like my big-as-my-hand rubber currycomb.

I was WRONG!  I loved it so much that I decided to buy one for each of my other two mares.  I still have my rubber currycombs and rubber grooming gloves, especially for legs and faces.  The Epona Flower Curry is really just for the larger areas of the horse, over the muscles of the neck, barrel, and hindquarters.


They sell for about $5, which is pretty reasonable I think.  They are great for smaller hands like mine.  I love the colors, they clean easily, and don't seem to loose their "shed-ability".


This is a definite must-have for every grooming kit!  :D
