2019 Equestrian Blogger Gift Exchange

For the fourth year in a row, I participated in the Equestrian Blogger Gift Exchange, which Tracy so kindly hosts (and has for seven years)!  I love choosing gifts for a fellow blogger, trying to find just the right thing to match their likes and interests.  And it is definitely fun to come home from work to a surprise package of horsey things for me!


This year, I received my gift quite early!  Thank you so much Eventing Saddlebred Style for the two surprises this past week!  She must have been checking out my Pinterest board I indicated I have, as these are both from my "want" category haha.

Plus, this is a new-to-me blog, so as soon as I finish this entry, I plan to tag along as a follower.  I like adding to my reading list, even though I have been terrible at commenting lately.


The cute little fox mug just makes me laugh.  I definitely cannot bring it to the middle school where I teach hahahaha, but I have already used it here at home a few times!

And the teal lead rope is aw…

New Home

After over 150 emails and dozens of phone calls, Reva has finally found a perfect new home.  It was bittersweet (and I cried) to watch that trailer leave with my girl loaded up inside, but I am so pleased to know she is going to a family who will love her like I do.  She is about an hour and a half north of me here in Maine, with people who have owned Standardbreds in the past and still do, so they understand and respect the breed.  She will be the primary mount for the husband who does distance trail riding, specifically something called Cross State, and I think Reva will love that.  I remember their daughter (a few years younger than I am) showing me with at three phase events and I have been to their farm to compete in the three phase they put on each year.  They are involved with the local pony club, so I suspect the daughters and various pony club girls will spoil her too.  So far, I hear she has adjusted well and fits into her new herd.  My heart is happy!!
