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 THIRTY! 30 Day Challenge

Day Thirty: Your future with horses

PHEW! I almost made it!  I missed posting this yesterday by completely spacing out.  This past week at school has been utterly insane.  But here it is!  I completed the entire 30 Day Challenge!  Click here to see all the posts.

So, my future with horses.  Well, I plan to own horses as long as I am physically capable.  I cannot imagine my life without them.  If I cannot own a horse at some point, I would find a way to lease one or at least take lessons.  Someday I plan to own another Morgan, someday I hope to own a Connemara pony, and I am sure I will own another Standardbred!

I plan to continue to compete in the future as well.  I love dressage and would LOVE to earn my USDF bronze medal someday.  That means I have to earn scores at First and Second...that might be hard.  My immediate plan is to try First Level this year with Dreamy and see how we do!

We are expecting a big 8-14" snow storm here in Maine tomorrow.  So much for this 30 Day Challenge helping me get through the winter weather.....SIGH.  Last year at this time it was 60-70 degrees...this year it has barely gotten into the 40s on a good day.  It has been a very very trying winter and early spring so far.  Here's hoping the summer is gorgeous for good riding!

I have lots to post about Dreamy and her spring conditioning!  I started riding her on March 13 and we have had 15 rides so far!  She is looking FANTASTIC and I am excited!  More later!  :-)
