Happy Thanksgiving from Decidedly Equestrian.

I hope that you have just as many things to be thankful for.  These are some of the things I am so very grateful for in 2015.

  1.  Being relatively healthy and happy this year.
  2.  Having those I love being reasonably healthy.
  3.  Having a barn full of happy teens and kids to look forward to every day.
  4.  Champ being such a good boy and trying super hard at this new thing called Dressage (and the many blue and red ribbons and high scores that came along with that).
  5.  Thankful for being reminded yet again that it can all go away in a second, but extremely thankful that Champ’s latest injury isn’t going to end his dressage career way too soon.
  6.  American Pharoah (thank you, thank you, thank you.  Now the pressure is off).
  7.  The opportunity to ride so many wonderful horses whenever I want so I can continue to improve and develop as a rider.
  8.  My trainers (Kim and Sara).
  9.  My students.
  10.  My readers (yes that’s you!).
  11.  A nice camera.
  12.  Charlotte and Valegro – for the inspiration.
  13.  Good products from good companies that make life just a little bit better (EquiFUSE, Synergy Stones, Goode Rider, MangoBay, Mrs. Conns, Ecovet, Ponytail, Nickerbait, Mrs. Pastures, and so many others).
  14.  That I can get most of what I need when I need it (like the new waterproof winter boots coming my way).
  15.  Most importantly the opportunity to do what I love every day.

What are you thankful for this year?
