Connie and Lena
May has been a really busy month around here! I've been teaching a lot of lessons and am so grateful to my parents who have stepped up as the best babysitters I could have. Not to mention that my dad has taken on all the mowing and maintenance around here as I learn to balance running a business and being a mom to two little ones! I don't know what I'd do without them. Now I just need to learn to make my brain function better on little sleep!:)
Podge is back in regular work and his dressage is really starting to improve. I'm not sure yet what this year holds for us as far as competitions go but I'm enjoying the time to really step back and correct some things in both my riding and his training that have been holding us back without the pressure of preparing for an event.
Piccolo's filly, Tess, is growing so big already! She seems to be an overly confident young filly with, admittedly, a bit of attitude already. She has started to whinny at me in the morning when it's time to come in but then proceeds to explore the farm when I try to bring her and Piccolo in. Piccolo is far more concerned about where her filly has wandered off to than Tess is about her mom!
Check out the horses for sale page. I've added two of my student's horses that she bred herself. Both Lena and Fritz have been coming weekly for lessons and they are both lovely horses with bright futures ahead of them.
Last but not least, a big congratulations to Jayne Whitton who finished 4th at Greater Dayton with Jude in the ON and also to Jessy Pack and Willow who also finished 4th in the NR division. Both students finished on ther dressage scores!
Just a quick note to mention that I plan to resume teaching lessons this week. I know that many are getting ready for Greater Dayton and I'll be available to coach at the event if anyone is interested. Please email, call, or text me if you'd like to set anything up.
Also, I've decided to name Piccolo's filly "Tess". Her fancy name will be "True Star". Be sure to check out the pictures that Lauren Pritchard of Heart and Light Equine took of her and posted on facebook.
