NEJA Two-Phase - May 31, 2020

Of course, none of us had any idea if we would be able to compete in 2020. I will say that my big goals for the year (which were sitting in an unpublished post from January 2020!) were to keep my horses healthy, happy, sound, to move up to BN with Ellie, and to complete one recognized horse trial at BN. And despite all of the COVID-19 protocols and cancellations over the year, we did meet our goals (mostly). Many of the local barns here in Maine took on the challenge of bringing us safe competitions in 2020. Ellie and I started the year by competing in a little schooling 2-phase and debuting at BN. It went well and it got me excited about the year's possibilities.  We had a great dressage test (placed second in our division) and then had one rail in our show jump course. The rail was totally my fault and for our first ever BN outing, I was pretty excited! We ended up fourth in a mid-sized division. And because I do not remember much else for specifics, here's a big old photo du

Marshaling at Cornish Trotting Park - Sept. 11

Dreamy and I have marshaled the annual amateur races at the Cornish Trotting Park every year since 2006.  This year I was not planning to attend...until one of the organizers saw me in the hardware store (gotta love living in a small town! LOL) and asked me if I would do it.  Of course, I said SURE!  :)  My partner in crime, Shelly, and her gelding McKeever also came along.

It was a gorgeous day and there were only eight races this year.  A long lost friend from elementary school whom I have reconnected with on FaceBook took these excellent pics!  Thanks Katie!  :)

Visiting with our "fans"....LOL!  Dreamy liked the kiddos the best. 


Pretty mare! 



I am not liking my new white breeches...the full seat is too "sticky" and I couldn't seem to post right!  :-P  LOL!  But Dreamy looks nice!




More time with our "fans"!  LOL!
