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…

Product Review: KJ Creations Tack Cleaner

The latest giveaway I was lucky to win was from KJ Creations!  Kristina has a super fun Instagram presence and her shop is full of cool items.  I entered her contest by telling what are my favorite tack items to clean (saddles) and my least favorite (bridles and breastcollars)!  I also had to tag a friend who also follows her page, so I chose Leah from Confessions of a Dressage Barbie.


We both won an 4oz. jar of tack cleaner!  I will be honest, I am a total saddle soap snob and generally only use Stubben's leather soap, Lederseife.  So KJ Creations's tack cleaner had to stand up to that.  And I am happy to say that it did and I love it!  I might not be giving up my Lederseife, but this tack cleaner definitely earned its spot in my tack cleaning bin.


Kristina gifted me the "After Hours" scent, which is comprised of bergamot and lavender.  It smelled heavenly.  It lathered up well and didn't leave any residue, which I love.  It cleaned off a winter's worth of gunk from my saddle and bridle.  I also used it on my tall boots and they look great!


If you are looking for an excellent tack cleaner AND to support a fabulous small business, I highly recommend KJ Creations!  She offers 23 scents and the price is reasonable.  And you can get lost browsing all her other items in her shop.  I am totally eyeing a few of the monograms and horse snacks!
