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 6: Childhood memory



This is Kennebec Chief, known as Kenny, with me up.  The photo was taken in 1989, so I would have been ten years old and Kenny was twenty four.

The neatest part of this childhood memory is that Kenny was a stallion and is my mare Sparky's sire.  Kenny was probably the most well behaved and easy going stallion I will ever meet and he taught me to canter.   I loved riding him!  Not many can say that not only did they ride a stallion as a kid, but that they got to ride their horse's sire.
