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…

Yeah, I am still here....

So it has been a while since I have blogged! LOL! Sorry all. Life has been chaotic, especially back during late July/August. I had a lot of things going on in my personal life and I just honestly did not feel like blogging. I was unhappy about things that were not specifically related to my horses, but it did impact my outlook on life and horses and such. :(

But, I do have LOTS OF NEWS! So I am going to try to get back into the habit of posting. :)

  5. Hi!
    I just stumbled upon your blog, and I have to say, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! I live in the Pacific Northwest, and show a Pinto who is mostly QH, with a little Standardbred, named Tucker. People out here constantly confuse Standardbreds with Saddlebreds, so I set them straight by calling them "trotters". Anyway, he has three solid gates, and we have shown in dressage for four years now, with mixed success. We will show 1st level in the spring. We cliniced with Sandy Chohany a few years ago, and she really liked Tucker. I so jealous that you were able to show for her - she is one of the best. He is also a very good jumper, and a part time therapy horse for people with disabilities. I think it is the Standardbred in him that makes him interesting, and much more versatile. I had to blog to give you any encouragement I can! You go girl!!!
