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 10: Something I made

A fool of myself (happens a lot) 
Cute candy prizes for the Pink Night at a horse show
A really cool refinished trunk
A point to get my Racing Under Saddle license (first person in Maine!)
A hay steamer (OK, my dad made it, I designed it)
A cute ribbon wreath with year end ribbons that were taking up too much space
A mess - This is what happens when I get a horse ready to show
Weird pics on my whiteboard at school - This is my horrible awesome drawing of Holden Caulfield "catching" kids in a field of rye.  Clearly, I am a masterful artist.
Yeah, I know I posted more than one pic.  It's my NaBloPoMo and I'll do what I want to.  ;-)

  1. I love that catcher in the rye drawing. Very masterful, but I may admit to giggling.

  2. Giggle away! LOL! That's the point! I love when a student says, "Now WHAT exactly is Holden doing with kids in a field of rye?" because then I get to draw my hideous yet funny pics!! :-D
