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…

Coincidence? Maybe...

I don't know if I have ever told the story about how my son shares his birthday with my mare Dreamy.  Basically, as I was recovering from my C-section, I told the nurses that my horse was born on this very same day!  They looked at me with wide eyes, looked nervously at each other, and tried to assure me I had given birth to a CHILD not a horse.  I tried unsuccessfully to explain that I knew that, but my horse had been born on the very same day, just thirteen years prior!  LOL!

Posin' with his twin

How curious, then, that my new mare ALSO shares the same birthday!  And.....the date of ownership for both is Christmas???  Coincidence?  Or fate?  You decide!  ;-)
