Whew. The holidays were a blur this year! The weather went crazy and almost everything got cancelled. On the Jellybean front, I rode her a few times and Ashlynn resumed lessons, but an exciting new opportunity came along, and Ashlynn is working on deciding whether she is going to permanently take on a new project:
So this closes the chapter of Ashlynn and Jellybean. I think they both learned a lot, and I’ll be brainstorming about Jellybean’s next job. I might spend some more time riding her and take her to a few shows, or if the right person comes along I may lease her again. At this point, she has a great foundation. The biggest challenge to the interested rider is her sassiness. She needs a rider who will not tolerate her shenanigans.
I’ve been reflecting a lot on where the blog is going and what my thoughts are about it. It started as a great place to write about the daily accomplishments with Jellybean. She doesn’t really have daily accomplishments anymore (unless we count eating…). She will be turning six this year, and she is well into life.
I’m still working out how to balance running my new business (koenigediting.com check it out) and work at the barn and ride my personal horses. Its quite the challenge. While I’ve been riding twice a week or more, I haven’t had time to also blog about it. And sometimes riding recaps are hard to write. I like having a place to share pictures and videos, but I’m also posting a lot to instagram (@atindalla).
All this to say I’m not sure where all of this is going. So I might not write as much, until I figure it out. As always, thanks for coming along for the ride. Hopefully I’ll get a little bit of direction soon.
