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

Dreamy is in the MDS omnibus....twice!

Here are two neat photos of Dreamy I came across in my newly arrived Maine Dressage Society 2009 omnibus. I was not aware that either pic would be used, so it was exciting to see them!

The first is an ad for the upcoming Linda Zang symposium. I have been checking the SMDA website nearly daily for the application. I am planning to apply to ride Dreamy with Ms. Zang, and I am crossing my fingers that I might be chosen! Of course, even if I am not chosen to ride (it costs a couple hundred bucks for a 45 minute lesson...) I will plan to audit the clinic.

Now, of course it is hard to tell if this is really my horse used as advertising. But I saw that pic, saw the white spot on the shoulder, and if this is not Dreamy, I will eat my hat. It HAS to be the two of us...and I think it was from a SMDA show in 2007, and the pic was taken by R. Cuffey.



The next photo was used in an advertisement for SPHO-Maine. Now, personally I think the ad was poorly done, since it does NOT even SAY SPHO-Maine on it! DUH........but I don't really care. I like the fact that Dreamy was displayed prominently in the upper right hand corner. Pretty cool! Not sure who did the ad, but I would imagine the aforementioned R. Cuffey would have played a part.
