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…

Happy 4th Anniversary, Standardbred Excellence!

I began this blog exactly four years ago today!  That seems crazy!  So much has changed over four years and I love being able to go back and see my mares' progress.  I wish I had the money to turn my blog into a book.  That would be pretty neat!


Right now, I have 96 followers and many more readers who do not officially "follow" me on Blogger.  I would love to hit 100!!  Thank you, loyal readers, for reading and commenting and supporting Standardbred Excellence!


Total pageviews in the last four years: 32,664!  I know that is not huge compared to some blogs, but I think it is pretty neat!  I never thought people would want to read what I write!


My most popular posts seem to be about chastetree berry, saddle fitting, ethmoid hematomas, our WEG 2010 adventure, and my COPD/Cushings post.

My biggest audience is by far here in the USA, with Canada, Australia, Russia, and the UK trailing a bit evenly behind.  About every day I get a reader from a country I have never heard of, which is neat.  I did a 30 Day Challenge back in March 2011 and NaBloPoMo in November 2011.


There are times when I blog nearly every single day and other times I will go a month without writing anything.  I try to be more consistent, but there are times when blogging just has to take a back seat to life.


Thank you to all my readers and commenters!  I love sharing my journey with you.  Here's to another great year of blogging!!  :-)

  3. hopefully I just added another person towards your goal of 100. :) I just recently started a "new" blog myself, and I am going to try to be a more consistent
    poster than I have in the past.

    I look forward to keeping up with your blog, as I also adore standardbreds!!
