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

Me riding Kenny circa 1988.  I was nine and we are about to ride my first ever dressage test!  He was the nicest and most well behaved stallion I have ever met!
This is a fun post, that shows many horses of my past, as well as Kenny and Sparky, my Sparky's sire and dam!  And here is another post about Sparky's famous relatives! 


BTW, I did a similar 30 day challenge back in March.  Here is post #1 that has info about my mares as well!  :-)
