ME Morgan Benefit Show - August 10, 2019

I had not been planning to bring Ellie to this show, but an email had gone out to members a few days prior that entries were a bit low.  So in order to support the club, we headed out to Pineland Farm the morning of August 10, for what promised to be a gorgeous summer day!  All photos that I am in were purchased from the show photographer!
I always think these types of shows are going to be fine, but at the end of every single one of them, I always remember why I should stick with dressage and eventing haha.  That is not to say there is anything wrong with open shows or the club that runs them; this is just not the type of showing we do well at because she's not a "show horse".
The show was held at a gorgeous facility that boasts both large indoor and outdoor arenas.  They chose to have the show indoors with warm-up outside, which is fine, but Ellie was not a fan of the indoor.  One corner was open to the large and echo-y storage area where they had set up the secretary…

  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 ;)
