BlogHop: Favorites of 2018

2018 has been a fun and busy year for us – filled with so many memorable moments. When I saw this post from Amanda over at The $900 Facebook Pony, I knew I had to do something similar.

Here are some of our favorites from 2018

Favorite Show Picture

I had to think pretty hard about what shows we did but this one is definitely the winner. Warm up for a schooling show with jump rounds and dressage tests. He was totally a rockstar. I love how balanced we are together.

Favorite Non-Show Picture

I love the composition of this one – the splash, reflection, the smiles. My non-horsey hubby took this one. He’s an excellent horse photographer. Thanks, love.

Favorite Thing You Bought

Easy one. I bought myself a new-to-me Custom Wolfgang Solo. LOVE. I don’t seem to have a picture of just my saddle so here’s a picture of my butt in it.

Favorite Moment in Horseback

The moment we finished our 2nd Novice course (with a few challenging jumps!) successfully. I freaking love this horse. I was so thrilled I could have cried.

Favorite Moment Out of the Saddle

We did a fair bit of horse camping this year. There were many hand walks between rides – Here is Firefly and his friend Atticus grazing on a walk at camp in the summer.

Favorite Between the Ears Shot

Sunset at said camp from atop my pony. Definitely the favorite.

Favorite Horse Ridden (etc) Aside from Yours

This little pocket rocket. #noscopenohope

Funniest Picture

His nose looks like a camel.

Favorite Fence (moment, etc) Conquered

Many fences could get this award this year. I’m going with the trakehener. I looked, he looked, we stopped. It took another couple of tries and over we went – with a little extra extraness, of course

Join in the fun – the only rule is that every category must have an accompanying picture!

Thanks to Nicole & Bow for getting me to do this.

Here are a few more if you care to peruse!
