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. having this photo shoot was definitely a highlight of 2019! 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

Day 18: In my bag

I thought of writing about my purse or school bag, but I am trying to keep this horse themed, so here goes.  :-)


I love this bag from Smartpak.  I use it a lot when I travel to overnight horse shows and it worked great on my two horsey trips to Acadia National Park.  In the past few months,  I bought another one to tote my helmet in its case, riding boots in their bag, grooming tote, and saddle pad for Snappy.  (I have another bag for my RUS saddle, girth, reins, crupper, and buxton.)  Because Snappy is stabled at Cumberland Fairgrounds, an hour from my house, I just tote my all tack back and forth.  This bag is awesome!  It is roomy and well made.  And of course, I love the Smart Pink color!  (Smartpak donates the proceeds to breast cancer research and to my delight, it is towards the Avon Foundation, not the Komen folks who I do NOT support.  I called and asked a while back. ;-)
