NER United States Pony Club Show Jump Rally - July 20, 2019

Ellie and I had SO MUCH FUN at our first Pony Club jump rally this year.  We drove up to Clay Brook Farms, where we had our D-1/D-2 rating, in order to compete for the day on July 20.  This happened to be one of the hottest days of summer, so the organizers modified the schedule a bit.  Instead of doing two rounds in the morning and one in the afternoon, we all did just two rounds (with a ten-minute break in between) all in the morning, so we were done and headed out just after lunch.

Day 10: Something I made

A fool of myself (happens a lot) 
Cute candy prizes for the Pink Night at a horse show
A really cool refinished trunk
A point to get my Racing Under Saddle license (first person in Maine!)
A hay steamer (OK, my dad made it, I designed it)
A cute ribbon wreath with year end ribbons that were taking up too much space
A mess - This is what happens when I get a horse ready to show
Weird pics on my whiteboard at school - This is my horrible awesome drawing of Holden Caulfield "catching" kids in a field of rye.  Clearly, I am a masterful artist.
Yeah, I know I posted more than one pic.  It's my NaBloPoMo and I'll do what I want to.  ;-)

  2. Giggle away! LOL! That's the point! I love when a student says, "Now WHAT exactly is Holden doing with kids in a field of rye?" because then I get to draw my hideous yet funny pics!! :-D
