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…

Hidden Brook Farm dressage show Aug. 8, 2009

Dreamy and I trucked up to Norway, ME on August 8 to compete at the Hidden Brook Farm schooling dressage show. It was the only unrated dressage show I did this year. I decided to compete because I needed one more show recognized by the Maine Dressage Society to qualify for year ends. We did the two Isaac Royal shows and so the HBF show made number three.

It was a gorgeous day and Dreamy was very good. In Training 2 we scored a 58.929% for third place and in Training 4 we scored a 58.8% for fourth place. Or it may have been the other way around for ribbons. LOL! I actually never wrote it down so I cannot remember which was which! Our scores were solid 5, 6, and 7s.
