She's Not a Baby Anymore!

Early spring saw some immediate changes in how Ellie carried herself and our dressage work started to truly improve.  There had been times last year where flat work felt like a fight and I wondered to myself if she was ever going to just relax and listen to me haha.

Thankfully, as the title suggests, Ellie has suddenly grown up in front of my eyes.  We have had some really stellar lessons lately, where I feel like I am suddenly able to make things click.  We also had an incredibly frustrating dressage lesson a few weeks ago where Ellie was in rip-roaring peeing heat (not normal for her) and we worked through 45 minutes of her refusing to bend right.  So, ya know, as much as she is improving, she is still an opinionated redheaded mare!  ;-)

Who doesn't love a fun giveaway?!

This is the bag I have from her!
She also does saddle covers, which are also quite nice, and I was lucky to test out a prototype for her last summer.  After using it for a few weeks on my own saddle to provide feedback, I ended up gifting it to a young rider who needed her own saddle cover.

    1. I own five saddles and eight saddle covers, so I honestly really didn't need another cover! ;-) And because I am a sucker for enabling all the young children of the horse world, I knew this little girl needed the cute pink and purple kitty saddle cover!
