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…

SMDA dressage banquet 2011

Southern Maine Dressage Association held their banquet on January 20, 2012.  I was excited to see how Dreamy fared this year, her first year at First Level.  SMDA awards are divided up by test, which is more fun than by level like the state banquet.

We ended up Grand Champion at Prix Caprilli, which I expected, having been undefeated in all five shows this past summer.  We were Reserve Champion at Training level, which was exciting!  We were third in First 1 and fourth in First 2.  Yay Dreamy!  Here is the link.

There was only one pic posted from the professional photographer that was there.  I am not that impressed, as it just seems like an odd angle to set up your camera.......?  Many of the photos of others were like that as well.  Weird.  Oh well, it does not matter.  We had fun this past year back at SMDA since 2008.  I did not do SMDA in 2009 or 2010 since I only competed in USDF/USEF shows those two years.  

Prix Caprilli champions!  I won a pretty navy blue embroidered fleece jacket as well.
Our pretty SMDA year end awards!  Go Dreamy!
This Sunday is the state banquet through Maine Dressage Society!
