CNER United States Pony Club Dressage Rally - May 11, 2019

Our very first ever PC rally was this past Saturday at Apple Knoll Farm in Millis, MA. It kind of cracks me up that I joined PC for the express purpose of access to more jumping instruction opportunities, and my first mounted experience is a dressage rally hahaha.  

But honestly, it was so much fun.  Maybe it is because I am so used to showing alone or maybe because I love the show prep and set up just as much (if not more) than the actual riding, but competing in a PC rally is now one of my most favorite experiences.  And I cannot wait to do more!  I think the only thing different for this show was having to label EVERYTHING with my name.  Otherwise, my show prep was just the same as normal.

Sadly, our original team of four riders ended up dwindling to just two, as one young rider ended up sick with a 103 fever and a barn was quarantined because of a horse with EHV-4 so none of the PC members from that large boarding barn could attend. Therefore, my remaining teammate and I were split …

Blog? What blog?

I have been SOOOO bad at blogging this summer!  LOL!  I have so much to write about, but absolutely have not made time to write.  My days are so full that by the end of the night all I want is a shower and my bed.  And now that I am so far behind, my motivation lowers even more.

I will say that my mares are doing super well.  Sparky is looking so good at age 29 that I actually had to cut her grain back a bit (I am sure the 2nd crop hay might have something to do with that!).  Dreamy is looking very, very muscled and we are doing quite well at First level this year, probably better than I dared to hope!  And Reva continues to make me proud as we confirm really solid basics at the walk and trot.

I promise to post more soon!!  Here's a pic from a recent vacation.....with Dreamy!  :-)
