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…

A finishing touch

Remember the old trunk I restored this past summer?  Look what I put on the front!  How pretty!  LOL!


The funny part is that I did not plan to order this stall plate.  I had ordered one WITHOUT the screw holes, but Dover sent me this one.  Whoops.  They won't take this one back, of course, as it is personalized. 

So after hemming and hawing about what to do with a stall plate with my farm name on it, I realized this was the perfect place!  Yay!  :-)

Once I get the proper one, I'll show you what I am doing with it...
