Happy New Year from me and Pluto!

A picture from our last ride of 2018!

2018 was such a great horsey year for us! We qualified for Indoors for the first time for both of us and ended up 10th at Harrisburg, which was a lifelong goal for me.

I got to ride a horse on the beach in Bermuda, which was a major bucket list item for me. I also started my podcast with three amazing friends, which has been such an exciting experience! 2019, you’ve got a lot to live up to!

Sorry we’ve been MIA recently (I say “we” as if Pluto helps with this blog. It’s time to start pulling your weight, bud…)! Pluto’s scratches progressed so we only lightly hacked from our lesson 12/17 until 12/28. (We also had family visiting, which was so fun).

With my sister at the Caves Holiday Party

At our lesson on Friday, 12/28, Pluto was very fresh from lack of turn out, so we did flatwork and cantered some rails set one-stride, bounce, to one-stride. The next day, we did another lesson. We cantered rails set one-stride apart then trotted in, cantered out a line in seven-strides working on keeping my body still in the air. Pluto was jumping great even though the jumps were small.

I hope you have a wonderful, happy, and healthy 2019!
