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…

Catch up time!

Oh, I have been a bad blogger!  Two months is a long time!  How often I think that ought to go on my blog and then life happens, and well......here we are!  :-)

Instead of a long boring post, how about a mess of photos to show you what we have been up to!  :-)


Snappy has been jogging...

I've done some cleaning and organizing in my tack room!  Believe it or not, I sold a bunch of saddle pads and my show pads are in another trunk!  LOL!  Yes, I have a problem...

We now have a jog cart for Snappy...

Clarence has done a little riding (here on Dreamy)...
We are working on those heels!

Sparky is looking fantastic for 31 years old this year!

Snappy has finally decided to accept Nose Kisses.  

Maybe because she likes her new saddle pad???  LOL!

Macky the barn cat has been doing what he does best...

Dreamy has been to two open hunter shows so far...

And we went to a team penning clinic again! 

The trees have finally grown leaves, the lawn is green, and I would say spring is finally here!  Snappy sprouted dapples, too!

  1. I'm a bad blogger too....as I love reading everyone else's blogs rather than writing on my own. I think of stuff to write about all the time.....and then I don't write about it :-/.
    I love the photos. Sparky looks awesome! Seeing photos like that gives me hope that I will have several more precious years with my Griffin (he's 25 this year). My fingers are crossed that the money gods will shine on me next year when the car is paid and I can adopt another wonderful Standie :-). I love your saddle pad collection......I have a brush & grooming tool collection just like it :-)
