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!

Marshaling at Scarborough Downs - Oct. 17, 2009

On Saturday, Oct. 17, 2009, the Standardbred Performance Society set up an informational booth and marshaled the race card at Scarborough Downs. It was special because it was the day of the 2 YO Stakes Finals for both pacers and trotters!

Of course, I marshaled again with my partner in crime, Shelly. We had a blast! Our horses are like peas in a pod.....neither of them like other horses (Dreamy never learned how to play nicely with others and McKeever was a stud until five years ago.....) but they LOVE each other! We trailer and show them all over the place!

And of course, we are now really snazzy with our perfectly matching saddle pads and windbreakers.

Yeah, we are awesome! LOL! :D

My horse looks headless....


This guy was giving McKeever (right) some fistfuls of grass. Dreamy (left) was like, "Hey, now, wait a minute....!!!"


Dreamy is in the background, McKeever is close up.


Dreamy says MOM, I'M BORED!

Aw, Deb comes along and pets me.
