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.

I admit I was a little bummed about our low scores at the SMDA show two weeks prior.  I know a score of 6 (60%) is called satisfactory, but I really thought our performance was better than a low 60%.
I was determined to ride well and even though Beth was not there, I had her youngest daughter as my back up if the wheels fell off the bus LOL!  She was already in the warmup and at the show ring with her actual students, so it was nice to have her there to remind me to breathe and not hang on the left rein!  ;-)
Ellie unloaded and was totally calm.  Honestly, she loves her lesson barn and knows it is her second home haha.  She was much calmer tied to the tra…

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.  ;-)

  1. I love that catcher in the rye drawing. Very masterful, but I may admit to giggling.

  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
