She's Not a Baby Anymore!

Early spring saw some immediate changes in how Ellie carried herself and our dressage work started to truly improve.  There had been times last year where flat work felt like a fight and I wondered to myself if she was ever going to just relax and listen to me haha.

Thankfully, as the title suggests, Ellie has suddenly grown up in front of my eyes.  We have had some really stellar lessons lately, where I feel like I am suddenly able to make things click.  We also had an incredibly frustrating dressage lesson a few weeks ago where Ellie was in rip-roaring peeing heat (not normal for her) and we worked through 45 minutes of her refusing to bend right.  So, ya know, as much as she is improving, she is still an opinionated redheaded mare!  ;-)

Day Twenty Five: Your dream trailer

My dream trailer would be another Eby.  I really love my Eby gooseneck stock trailer, but if I could afford it, I would want a fancy horse trailer with tack room.  I like the look of the Victory Series 4 horse head to head.   I would want the tack room of course.  I would rather have a head-to-head rather than a slant load.  I am not sure if I would want a trailer with living quarters though.  When I show overnight I kind of like getting a hotel room and having a real shower and bed.  :-)

  1. Lol, I'm not fussy about the bed part, but I am rather fond of the shower part! I'd like a 2 horse straight load gooseneck... ideally a tack room would be nice too. Living quarters I'm not fussy about because I could always just pitch a tent or sleep in the gooseneck if I'm desperate. Those trailers are gorgeous though!
