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

Day Seven: 30 Day Challenge

Day Seven: Your best ribbon

This is very hard to decide.  I am proud of every ribbon I have won!  But here are my top four...

#4 Winning the Taurmade Memorial Award for the highest Training level score at the National Standardbred horse show in both 2008 and 2010.  This is special to me because it is named after my friend Helene's special horse Taurmade.

#3 Winning the 2007 National High Point Standardbred Award, which is important to me because it was earned at the end of Dreamy's first year of showing!

Yeah, I know it is a dorky picture, but it is all I have!  LOL!
#2 Earning a 68% and third place ribbon at the UNH Dressage Show for Training 2 on July 31, 2010 which marked a clear milestone for me and Dreamy.  This would not be a huge deal for some, but to me this ribbon and score was AWESOME!  We earned our highest USDF rated show score ever which was a 68.214%.  Out of 12 riders, I was very pleased to be the highest scoring adult amateur in my class (they do not split open and AA, so the two riders who scored above me were professionals).  This was also the show that allowed us to qualify for...

#1 Winning two 2010 USDF All-Breed Champion awards- Open and Adult Amateur.  Dreamy is the third Standardbred to win the Open Training award and the first one to win the AA Training award!  Yay!  This was my loftiest goal with Dreamy and certainly the most prestigious.
