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 …

  1. I was going to pick one, but I'm pretty sure all of these could be Morgans in some shape or form. Although L has been seriously doubting.

  2. I think this is a trick question. ;) Aren't they all Morgans?

  3. They're probably all Morgans as I am suspicious this is a trick question. But I'm going to guess, A, B, C, F, G, h, I, K, M

  6. I was going to say all of them because God most of them look like the 'modern Morgan' Sigh.

    But I think maybe a few of them are Saddlebreds. I think that C, E, F are Morgans. I hope D is not. I am torn on G and H but gonna say they are Morgans (But could be Saddlebreds). Even though the horse looks Saddlebredy I am going to say I is a Morgan (could go either way). J is for sure and M too. I think K & L are Saddlebreds but AGAIN who the hell knows nowadays.

    You and I need to have a glass of wine or cup of coffee and talk Morgans. We have very similar ideas about the way the breed has gone I think :) Thanks for this early morning exercise for me I needed it (PS I would take C, E and J in a hot minute !)

  7. I feel like all of those are Morgans, although it has been many, many years since I rode a Morgan (gotta love New England college breeding programs with Morgans at the center!). My personal favorite is J followed by C!

    A, C, E, F, H, J
