SMDA Recognized Show - July 14, 2019

Ellie and I tried her first recognized show in July.  It was quite an interesting experience; I don't know why this has been such a weird year, but sadly it has!

I signed up to ride Training 2 and 3, paying the little extra to have T3 count as a qualifying score.  It didn't really matter since we cannot do enough rated shows this year to qualify for a USDF award, as I want to do horse trials and other things on weekends when the rated shows are scheduled.  But I wanted it to "count" just in case because you never know lol!

I didn't get any media as I went by myself.  Training 2 went great!  Ellie warmed up well and we had a really solid test.  She was calm and rideable, and I honestly thought we had done quite well!  The judge didn't agree and we scored a 62.241%, for third in a class of five.  Not a terrible score, but it seemed lower than the performance.  I figured it was just a difference between normally doing schooling shows and this was rated, so the sco…

Gettin' Crafty!

I love being crafty, but I am not very talented.  LOL!  Every so often, I am inspired and create something that turns out exactly as I imagined.  I found this blog and loved the little animal jars.  (She sells them on etsy for $26!!  OMG!!)  I decided to create my own to donate to the American Saddlebred Association of Maine's Pink Party at their big Summer Spectacular show in a week.  I became a member of ASAM this year, not only because many of my friends are and I like to support friends, but also because I was able to accumulate points with ASAM for the roadster classes I did with Reva!  Many of the MHA affiliated shows I attend are put on by ASAM. 

So, I may not own a Saddlebred, but I support them!  How cute are these??  I bought used Breyer Stablemates on eBay, new Mason jars, Super Glue, spray paint, various pink candies, and ribbon and put them together this afternoon!  So easy and adorable!  :-)
