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 THIRTY! 30 Day Challenge

Day Thirty: Your future with horses

PHEW! I almost made it!  I missed posting this yesterday by completely spacing out.  This past week at school has been utterly insane.  But here it is!  I completed the entire 30 Day Challenge!  Click here to see all the posts.

So, my future with horses.  Well, I plan to own horses as long as I am physically capable.  I cannot imagine my life without them.  If I cannot own a horse at some point, I would find a way to lease one or at least take lessons.  Someday I plan to own another Morgan, someday I hope to own a Connemara pony, and I am sure I will own another Standardbred!

I plan to continue to compete in the future as well.  I love dressage and would LOVE to earn my USDF bronze medal someday.  That means I have to earn scores at First and Second...that might be hard.  My immediate plan is to try First Level this year with Dreamy and see how we do!

We are expecting a big 8-14" snow storm here in Maine tomorrow.  So much for this 30 Day Challenge helping me get through the winter weather.....SIGH.  Last year at this time it was 60-70 degrees...this year it has barely gotten into the 40s on a good day.  It has been a very very trying winter and early spring so far.  Here's hoping the summer is gorgeous for good riding!

I have lots to post about Dreamy and her spring conditioning!  I started riding her on March 13 and we have had 15 rides so far!  She is looking FANTASTIC and I am excited!  More later!  :-)
