NEJA Winter Schooling Jumper Show - April 25, 2021

Our final NEJA show in their winter series was at the end of April. On a whim, I decided to kick it old school and wear my rust breeches and navy coat. I definitely got a few "looks" from some of the HJ crowd, but it was worth being the weirdo eventer girl haha. It was a gorgeous spring day and our rounds were all excellent. Rejoice really seems to enjoy her newfound jumper pony status and powered around like she knew what she was doing haha.  My goals for the day were to win the ground poles speed class by taking a sneaky route someone's trainer would not approve of again haha like I did at the March show and to remember my jump off round like I did NOT do at the March show! Though there wasn't a super sneaky route to take in the ground poles class, I made sure to set her up for tight turns and rollbacks. We did win the class out of nine riders! Whoot! Our speed cross rails was also a good class, with Rejoice willing to listen to half halts, turn on a dime, and also

RIP Honest Appraisal aka "Muffin"

A very talented Standardbred mare was laid to rest today. Her name is Honest Appraisal, known to her friends as Muffin. I was lucky enough to meet Muffin this past summer. See here for the story. My thoughts are with her owner MS, who owned this lovely mare for 25 of her 30 years on earth.

Rest in peace, dear mare.

  1. This has been a very sad week for the Standardbred world in the state of maine. My heart goes out to all who have passed over the bridge horse and human.
