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…

Reva Becomes a Riding Horse

Here are some pics from September. This was the last time I rode in her tiny paddock. Since then, I have ridden her in the large field where I ride Dreamy. Of course, I have no pics or videos, seeing as it is nearly impossible to get my husband to take any! This was a rare occasion! LOL!







Telling her what a GOOD GIRL she is!

Dislikes the bugs!


Clarence had been DYING to ride Reva. She is only three, at this point in these pics had only been backed three times, so of course I always said NO! Next summer, maybe!

Well, he won out. I let him sit on her while my husband helped.


Clarence was so beside himself with excitement to ride the filly! She was SO GOOD. I would NOT recommend doing this with most 3 yo fillies, but Reva is just simply a Super Horse!


With Shawn at Clarence's leg, I walked Reva around a little in her paddock. She walked on eggshells. Perfect girl!

He'll be doing Leadline with her next year! LOL! ;-) Just kidding......no showing next year.


The rule here is that if you ride, you help take care of the horse. Clarence wanted to put her hoof polish on. He tells me now that he has ridden her, Reva is HIS horse. I can have Sparky and Dreamy if I want.......too funny.
