Wentworth Hunter Pace - June 6, 2021

After Margaret and I had such a fun time at the fall hunter pace, we opted to go again this spring! This time, while I rode Rejoice again, Margaret rode her horse Jester and had a friend ride Ladyhawke. All Kennebec Morgans!! Jester and Rejoice have the same dam and Jester and Lady share the same sire. Unfortunately instead of a lovely late spring day, we had one of the first intensely hot and humid days of the year. It was definitely a bummer, but the ride was mostly in the shade of the woods and we had a great time!  most of the fences were 3' coops but we found a small log and this hay to jump haha Until we didn't. 😑 We brought along a third friend who rode Margaret's older mare, Ladyhawke. She's a good rider but hasn't known Ladyhawke for very long and didn't realize how much of a cranky boss mare she could be at times. She kicked Jester right in the front leg just about halfway through the ride, and while the cut itself ended up not being a big deal in the

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.
