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.

DIY Project!

My grandfather gave me an old racing trunk that I decided to fix up this summer.  I think it came out pretty neat; it is not perfect, but it looks pretty!  :-)


Starting point

Adding paint...
