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…

Cornish Horsemen's Day

I have marshaled at Cornish Horseman’s Day for many years now. This year it was held on Sept. 12, 2009. It is a fun day of racing at the local track here in my town, known as the Cornish Trotting Park at the Cornish Fairgrounds. Many amateur horsemen and women are given the chance to try their skills at harness racing. This year's event benefited the Cornish Fairgrounds Restoration Fund.

In the past, I have marshaled as a member of the SPHO-Maine. Because I am no longer a member, I had not planned to marshal this year. However, Diann the organizer called just a week before the event to ask if the Standardbred Performance Society was interested in sending any volunteers. WHY SURE! It seemed as though SPHO-Maine had no marshals to send, so SPS was invited instead!


So both Shelly and McKeever joined Dreamy and I for the day. We had such a blast! I love to marshal and meet-and-greet with the crowd. It was an overcast day with a slight drizzle, but despite that, we had a great time together! Plus the infield is a GREAT place to canter! :)


PLEASE LET US EAT GRASS! LOL!
