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 I will say that my big goals for the year (which were sitting in an unpublished post from January 2020!)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.

Day Nine: Any injuries you've gotten from riding

Well, this is a boring post!  LOL!  Thankfully I have never been seriously injured from riding.  I have often been sore and sunburned from riding though!  LOL!  I did sprain my ankle from falling off (at a horse show......great!)  last spring, which was the worst thing I have ever done.   


So now that I have written this, let's all knock on wood that my minimal injury track record will continue!  :-)


Yes, I know, this pic has nothing to do with my post.  But Dreamy is cute and fat, and I wish it looked like that outside!  :-)

  1. Hi honey,

    Luckily your mother has only seen you fall off a horse twice and that was enough for a lifetime. I am so glad that you have never gotten seriously hurt while riding. Please keep it up! I love you Elizabeth, mom xoxox
