She's Not a Baby Anymore!

Early spring saw some immediate changes in how Ellie carried herself and our dressage work started to truly improve.  There had been times last year where flat work felt like a fight and I wondered to myself if she was ever going to just relax and listen to me haha.

Thankfully, as the title suggests, Ellie has suddenly grown up in front of my eyes.  We have had some really stellar lessons lately, where I feel like I am suddenly able to make things click.  We also had an incredibly frustrating dressage lesson a few weeks ago where Ellie was in rip-roaring peeing heat (not normal for her) and we worked through 45 minutes of her refusing to bend right.  So, ya know, as much as she is improving, she is still an opinionated redheaded mare!  ;-)

But, I have to give her credit because she is really working her little butt off for me!  Sadly, I had not been able to schedule in a jump lesson before our first three-phase, which led to me riding her ridiculously backward at a slow trot the entire …

Impressive

Anyone remember my blog post about my friend's tack store a couple months ago?

Go ahead, read the previous entry.  I'll wait...

OK, you're back!  Now guess what?  The arbitration company found her in the RIGHT!  Here is what she posted tonight on Facebook:

This is for those of you who knew me as Blue Ribbon Consignment & Tack...we WON THE ARBITRATION that Blue Ribbon Custom Tack brought against us. I am still the rightful owner of blueribbonconsignment although this new name is fantastic and I'm glad this all happened, it's nice to know that we were in the right!!

*****CHALK ONE UP FOR THE LITTLE GUY*****
WE WON!!!The bottom line of a 9 page document received from the arbitration company -"Complainant having not established all three elements required under the ICANN Policy, the panel concludes that relief shall be denied.  Accordingly, it is ordered that the domain name REMAIN WITH RESPONDENT." WOOOOOT!!! David took down Goliath!! And got a better name and logo to move on with to boot! Thanks you guys!!!

I think this is so fantastic.  Granted, she has since gone ahead and changed her name to Hot to Trot Consignment, as she needed to get her Facebook page and website back up and running to continue business.  Much of her business comes via the internet, so she could not sit and around and wait weeks for this decision.  So really, this win was just on the pure PRINCIPLE of the matter, but I am still happy for her!!
