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

Acadia National Park 2012 - Second Annual Trip

I was fortunate enough to visit Acadia National Park again this year.  My friend Shelly and I had a BLAST last year and this time around was no different.  Several friends expressed interest in coming along, but only two actually did: Angie and Craig.  They are a super nice couple that live here in my town, and interestingly enough, Shelly knew Angie when they were younger.  And Craig is my friend Tania's dad!  LOL!  Small world indeed!

Dreamy really seems to love Acadia and is the perfect trail horse!  :-)  We spent four days this year, going up on Thursday and coming back on Sunday.  I really hope to return in 2013!
