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 7: Something new

This saddle pad rack is one of my newest finds.  I LOVE THIS THING!  I have a very tiny tack room and a lot of tack.  I have two trunks full of saddle pads (yes, I have a problem) and always seemed to have the pads currently in use strewn around in a very messy system.  I hate flipping them over on top of my saddles, though that it was I usually have done.


It is hard to see with the ribbons hanging (yes, I have a "problem" with those too....LOL!), but this little rack has ten swinging arms to hold pads.  It fits in the tiniest spot in my tack room, smooshed between my saddle racks and a trunk/bridle bags on hooks, but it is perfect.  I have all my schooling saddle pads that I use on a regular basis out on this rack now.  And the best part is that when the pad is damp after a ride, it very easily dries out on this rack too!

  3. I must also confess to having saddle pad problem. I'm pretty sure you can never have too many. They are like the shoes of the horse world. This rack is perfect!
