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.

    Actually, the most exciting ribbon we've got was also the most meaningless! We won a hot pink and burgundy ribbon for a clear round at a local jumper show.

  3. Actually, for us blue is second! We aim for red. And I would totally agree with you on the relative irrelevance of ribbons in general. I think some of the best show experiences we've had don't correlate with our results/placement; it just depends on the rest of the division.
    My point was merely that your ribbons are so much prettier! Purely superficial and trivial longing ;)
