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…

Yorkfield Farm Fox Hunt

Dreamy and I went to Yorkfield Farm in Kensington, NH on November 17, 2012 for our fifth hunt of the season.  It was another gorgeous day!  We have really lucked out on our hunting weather this year.  Yorkfield Farm is beautiful, as is the surrounding land, and it boasts a true nine acre polo field!  :-O  We had a great day galloping and jumping through the countryside, as usual!

Hacking along the road to get to the next field...we are fifth back.

Before a run...fifth from front, fourth from back!

Whee!!!  We are back there somewhere in the middle!

There was A LOT of galloping at this hunt!  It was fast and fun!!  I think we are last in this photo.

Catching our breath at a check.


At a check at the end of a campground area, near a pond.


Relaxing at the check.  I love that she has figured out to just relax at the checks and not stay wound up!
Dreamy is probably in the best shape she has ever been in!

Talking with Joshua and his owner :-) 
I'm not in this pic, but I wanted to show the awesome runs we had between the trees at the Christmas tree farm!  SO FUN!!!! 
Can you see the hunt all the way up on the left?  This was super nice galloping!

  1. So she goes-and-goes...and then she rests at the checks...and then she goes again?

    Sounds like an endurance horse to me!

    What beautiful ground you covered, hooray for all y'all.
