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…

Yorkfield Farm Fox Hunt

Dreamy and I went to Yorkfield Farm in Kensington, NH on November 17, 2012 for our fifth hunt of the season.  It was another gorgeous day!  We have really lucked out on our hunting weather this year.  Yorkfield Farm is beautiful, as is the surrounding land, and it boasts a true nine acre polo field!  :-O  We had a great day galloping and jumping through the countryside, as usual!

Hacking along the road to get to the next field...we are fifth back.

Before a run...fifth from front, fourth from back!

Whee!!!  We are back there somewhere in the middle!

There was A LOT of galloping at this hunt!  It was fast and fun!!  I think we are last in this photo.

Catching our breath at a check.


At a check at the end of a campground area, near a pond.


Relaxing at the check.  I love that she has figured out to just relax at the checks and not stay wound up!
Dreamy is probably in the best shape she has ever been in!

Talking with Joshua and his owner :-) 
I'm not in this pic, but I wanted to show the awesome runs we had between the trees at the Christmas tree farm!  SO FUN!!!! 
Can you see the hunt all the way up on the left?  This was super nice galloping!

  1. So she goes-and-goes...and then she rests at the checks...and then she goes again?

    Sounds like an endurance horse to me!

    What beautiful ground you covered, hooray for all y'all.
