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 …

Social Media

Besides Blogger, I use Facebook and of course, Snap Dancer has her own page as does our farm.  Starting in the fall, the school where I teach is going to begin a student enrichment group (one of many) to help "brand" our school district through Twitter and Instagram.  

Hmmmmm.  This is a good idea, however I do not use either platform.  So, in an effort to remain tech savvy and engaged with the district, I started both Twitter and Instagram accounts.

Pretty sad looking so far LOL!


I am still not totally sure how either of them work, and I definitely don't have a strong hashtag game.  I also don't totally understand how I should use each one.  Do I post the same things over and over?  How boring!  It already feels redundant when I post about a horse show to my personal Facebook, Snappy's page, and the farm page.  I am not really sure how I want to use them yet, if at all.  

Sounds like a good summer research project for this teacher!  ;-)
