NEJA Winter Schooling Jumper Show - April 25, 2021

Our final NEJA show in their winter series was at the end of April. On a whim, I decided to kick it old school and wear my rust breeches and navy coat. I definitely got a few "looks" from some of the HJ crowd, but it was worth being the weirdo eventer girl haha. It was a gorgeous spring day and our rounds were all excellent. Rejoice really seems to enjoy her newfound jumper pony status and powered around like she knew what she was doing haha.  My goals for the day were to win the ground poles speed class by taking a sneaky route someone's trainer would not approve of again haha like I did at the March show and to remember my jump off round like I did NOT do at the March show!

3 YO Maine Sire Stakes Finals

We were back at the Downs on October 14, 2012 for the 3 Year Old Maine Sire Stakes Finals.  We had another great day like back in September for the 2YO Finals.  It was a little colder and a little wetter, but still a lovely fall day.  I did not get as many photos of us as I did back in September.  I had bought a CD of Snappy and me racing under saddle the day before and Derek, the track photographer, added in pics from the 2YO Finals for me too!  Ah well.  I think I have PLENTY of photos of Dreamy, don't you think??  LOL!!!

We had a great day of fast horses and good racing!!
Tacking up!  Yes, I am using an AP saddle pad with my dressage saddle.  There are worse things.  LOL!!!!

Headed out!  It was a little chilly but also a bit rainy.  We both had our raincoats UNDERNEATH our maroon jackets.  LOL!  





I love when both Dreamy and McKeever watch the races together.  LOL!
