2016 in Review


In putting this together, I realized how much change Tesla and I both went through over the course of 2016. Here's hoping 2017 makes me into a better, more effective rider, and Tesla continues to makes strides forward :D

January

Start of this blog!




February

Took some time to work on the basics





March


Experienced the Luck of the Irish on St. Patty's Day firsthand (pun intended!)


and got some new hardware in  my left wrist!


April



May



Tesla turned 6


 and I hosted a 100th post giveaway
June

Got spoiled with Leister brushes! P.S. they are holding up well!!


and met the wonderful L from Viva Carlos in person!



July


Tess got super drunk with friends..





August






September



and we learn that her half-sister is local!


October







I buy a bona-fide dressage saddle, and notice some worrying trends at the new barn that start me looking elsewhere, and we move back to the original barn we were at.

November



So we longe, and longe some more.

December



Tesla starts to get "it" and gets an actual dressage bridle for Christmas.
and we wrap up the year with an awesome lesson from Trainer J.
