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…

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!!

My last ride on Reva, at the indoor I boarded her at for two weeks in order to better show her to potential owners.  Love you mare.
