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…

Day Eleven: 30 Day Challenge

Day Eleven: Find a sale horse online that you want to buy

Well, this is hard!  LOL!  I am not the type of person who browses sale ads.  And I am not in the market for a horse, so sale horses don't cross my mind.  :-)  If I got to choose a horse to buy for myself (as opposed to have a Standardbred given to me...), I would choose a Connemara (or maybe another Morgan).  Yes, I LOVE my Standardbreds!  But if we are living in my fantasy world here, then I get to have my dream Connemara pony!!!  LOL!

Cute Connemara - and great price!

Another cutie Connemara 

And another...

Or I would buy one from Bantry Bay Farm


I would want a mare, maybe already started under saddle.  I would not want anything over 6-7 years old.  It would have to be a dappled gray or a chestnut.....maybe a bay.  I am sure if I dedicated a lot of time to internet browsing I could find more examples.  


You know, it just dawned on me.  Instead of choosing a six figure warmblood as the horse I would dream about buying, I chose a pony.  HA HA HA HA....

  1. Aww, I like the first one the best. After that, I like the Bantry Bay eventer pony. Gotta love the ponies ;) (although, if you've got a six figurer you're offering up... I wouldn't say no!)

  2. I love the Bantry Bay ponies. They event all around up here in New England. So cute and talented!

    OMG I would never in a million years be able to afford a 6 figure horse! LOL! And you know, even if I could, I would still want a Connemara pony. HA HA HA
