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

It was a great day, despite the heat and humidity.  My friend Shelly couldn't bring McKeever, as she was marshaling at the Cumberland Fair.  While I did miss having her there, it was a lot of fun to spend time with friends Margo, Amanda, and Nathan.  They always make me laugh.  And Amanda had a WONDERFUL ride on her gorgeous 3 year old American Saddlebred, pinning second in ASB Country Pleasure!!!!  Yay Amanda and Gemma!!!


Thanks to my friend Amber for helping out as my groom and photographer for the day!  :-)
