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…

Happy New Year and all that good stuff...

What a crazy few weeks!  I had a wonderful Christmas vacation from teaching and while there were several things going on to blog about, I have just not had the time to sit down and write!  I need to do an update on Snap Dancer, news about selling a horse, a recap of 2012 and our goals, and of course, set some new goals for 2013!

Before I get to all of that, here is a little pictorial wrap up...

We had a great pre-Christmas lunch and gift exchange with my mom and her husband.  And yes, we threw some knives.  NBD (That's my husband.)
Santa was very generous!
My son loves to ride his (junky old) bike in the sn*w.  I guess it handles better than the new one.  LOL!  We got about two feet of sn*w TOTAL for the month of December 2012.  We only had 2 inches in December of 2011.  sigh  
20th annual Christmas Day ride on my Sparky 
Mac the barn cat is not sure he likes this sn*w...I feel the same. 
Reva
Sparky 
Dreamy (She wears a blanket because she is body clipped.)
Snappy 
The mat is not actually this color, but my phone is not exactly a fancy camera.  LOL!  It is more green.  I love this!
