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…

Day Twenty One: Your favorite schooling outfit

For whatever reason, I tend to wear tan and white (dressage) breeches only at shows and at home I wear all other colors.  My most favorite schooling pair was my greenish full seat Kerrits breeches.  I say was because the fabric on the seat completely fell apart this past fall.  I got them on clearance for only $20 and I adored them.   Oh well.  At least I did not pay full price ($90+)!  My other favorite schooling pair is a dark gray ribbed full seats from Tuff Rider.  They were on clearance for only $15.  :-)  You know, I never seem to find my tan or white show breeches on clearance....LOL!

I generally wear one of my many horsey t-shirts to school in.  When it is super hot, I go with a tank top.  My favorite is a gray tank with thicker straps.  But I am not too fashion conscience, because usually I am mucking stalls and doing other farm chores before and/or after I ride. 

I wear my IRH helmet and Ariat field boots for both schooling and showing.  I am not rich enough to own two different sets! :-)  And I wear my SSG riding gloves...but instead of black or white (which I only use for showing) I wear a leopard print pair to school in!  LOL!
