She's Not a Baby Anymore!

Early spring saw some immediate changes in how Ellie carried herself and our dressage work started to truly improve.  There had been times last year where flat work felt like a fight and I wondered to myself if she was ever going to just relax and listen to me haha.

Thankfully, as the title suggests, Ellie has suddenly grown up in front of my eyes.  We have had some really stellar lessons lately, where I feel like I am suddenly able to make things click.  We also had an incredibly frustrating dressage lesson a few weeks ago where Ellie was in rip-roaring peeing heat (not normal for her) and we worked through 45 minutes of her refusing to bend right.  So, ya know, as much as she is improving, she is still an opinionated redheaded mare!  ;-)

But, I have to give her credit because she is really working her little butt off for me!  Sadly, I had not been able to schedule in a jump lesson before our first three-phase, which led to me riding her ridiculously backward at a slow trot the entire …

PRODUCT REVIEW: Horse Shave

I absolutely adore these little purple horse shaver things.  They are so easy to use and are very economical.  In the past, I used the disposable Bic razors on my horses' muzzles, but they never really seemed to work that well.  This thing is perfect.

The only downside is that they are VERY sharp.  You have to be careful you do not cut your horse's muzzle, so slow and steady is best.

I do not shave my horses' muzzles very often.  In fact, Sparky and Reva have full beards.  LOL!  :D  Dreamy only gets shaved just before a horse show where we are doing in-hand classes.  

There are many products I just cannot live without......this is definitely high on the list for showing!  :)
