Hidden Brook Farm Dressage Schooling Show - June 2, 2019

Ellie and I did a show at our lesson barn this past weekend instead of taking a lesson.  I would have done a lesson on Saturday before the show, but my instructor went to NEDA Spring with her eldest daughter, who was able to get her last Grand Prix score for her USDF Gold Medal!!!  So that is a good reason to not be able to lesson haha.

I admit I was a little bummed about our low scores at the SMDA show two weeks prior.  I know a score of 6 (60%) is called satisfactory, but I really thought our performance was better than a low 60%.
I was determined to ride well and even though Beth was not there, I had her youngest daughter as my back up if the wheels fell off the bus LOL!  She was already in the warmup and at the show ring with her actual students, so it was nice to have her there to remind me to breathe and not hang on the left rein!  ;-)

  1. Ooh ribbons! I have ribbon envy. Maybe I need to get a STB or a paint and start doing breed shows or something, but none of the ribbons we win are nearly as exciting.

    Actually, the most exciting ribbon we've got was also the most meaningless! We won a hot pink and burgundy ribbon for a clear round at a local jumper show.

    Awww, Kate, ribbons are not everything! Some of my best horse show experiences do NOT include winning any blue ribbons.

  3. Actually, for us blue is second! We aim for red. And I would totally agree with you on the relative irrelevance of ribbons in general. I think some of the best show experiences we've had don't correlate with our results/placement; it just depends on the rest of the division.
    My point was merely that your ribbons are so much prettier! Purely superficial and trivial longing ;)
