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 …

Another blog award!

Thanks to Kate over at Riding from the Ground Up for bestowing blog award to me!  Yay!  This one is called the One Lovely Blog award.  I love sharing these (sort of silly, admit it) awards with my little blogging community.  It is good fun and it is almost like winning ribbons!  LOL!!  ;-D




I am supposed to tell you seven things about myself and chose 15 blogs to share this award with. 


1. I try really hard to not be the "mean old English teacher" in all facets of my life.  ;-)


2. I despise anything remotely related to being domestic.  My only domestic quality is that I live in a house!  ;-)  I routinely wish I had a housewife who would do all that cooking, cleaning, and laundry awfulness for me.  UGGG!  My barn is always cleaner than my house.


3. I am way too competitive for my own good.  But I do have sportsmanship and can win humbly and lose gracefully. 


4.  I can be too honest at times, which can get me into trouble.  


5.  I have a Puritan work ethic and have to remember not to burn myself out.  Saying no is hard to do.  I also sometimes hold others to a higher ethical standard than they hold themselves and it stresses me out.


6. I am easily frustrated by parents who lie for their children.  They need to make their little cherubs own up to their poor choices and not blame others.


7. I can be quiet, which leads others to sometimes think I am snobby.  That is the FURTHEST thing from the truth!  If you don't like me, you definitely don't know me.  :-)


And the 15 blogs I will award this to:


1. G is for Greta
2. The Polka Dot Periodical
3. The Adventures of Lucy
4. Memoirs of a Horse Girl
5. We are Flying Solo
6. Haiku Farm
