2019 round up!
So here we are, the 31st December 2019, and as the stable door closes for another year it’s time to reflect on what has been a topsy-turvy year for various reasons.
At the beginning of the year plans were being made for monsoon, remember her - the lovely bay mare I had on loan - we were having regular lessons and progressing well. But unfortunately she was to return home to her owner, too many details to bother you with, but that’s life.
Jasper, well he has had a cracking year for a 2 year old, and a late one at the at! He took the supreme title at his first show of the year, and for the few we actually contested this year, he did me proud, I’m sad that my knee problems have kept his season well and truly short and sweet, but I’m pretty sure he doesn’t mind not being bathed and trimmed every week! He looks like a woolly mammoth at the moment, but he’s enjoying simply eating and having fun being the yard clown!
Fast forward to October, and my latest Equine joined the family, the fabulously gorgeous Calvados Spirit, Cal to his friends! He is still enjoying his down time since retiring from his racing career, and has been taught how to “horse” by Jasper very well! He is an absolute joy to have in my family and I’m so excited for his future, once he’s had his rest time obviously.
2019 wasn’t the most exciting of years on paper, or screen (!) but that just makes me more determined to make 2020 one to have to edit in December as it’s too jam packed! Yes this year’s had its ups and downs, and although the plans made in the early part of the year were scuppered, as always it’s been a case of “if life gives you lemons, then make lemonade”, so cheers to making new plans for 2020 and should they change, then I’m going to be making new ones!
Happy New Year everyone x
