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…

NaBloPoMo Day #5

Day #5 - My horse's talents and natural abilities


Reva
I would say that Reva's natural talent so far is her extended trot.  She is a trotter, which helps!  LOL!  But she extends so easily (and sometimes when I am not asking...such as during a victory pass!  LOL!)


Dreamy
You know, it is funny to think about after all her showing success, but Dreamy has to work pretty hard at dressage and jumping.  She is not naturally talented under saddle, but her WORK ETHIC comes very easily.  She is a worker bee and wants to please.


Sparky
My little Morgan was a very versatile and safe horse in her day.  I did all sorts of things with her, but I would have to say she was the most talented as a driving horse.  We competed up to Preliminary in CDEs and driven dressage and open in pleasure driving shows.  She went on the bit easily and perked right up in harness.  I miss driving her.
