NER United States Pony Club Show Jump Rally - July 20, 2019

Ellie and I had SO MUCH FUN at our first Pony Club jump rally this year.  We drove up to Clay Brook Farms, where we had our D-1/D-2 rating, in order to compete for the day on July 20.  This happened to be one of the hottest days of summer, so the organizers modified the schedule a bit.  Instead of doing two rounds in the morning and one in the afternoon, we all did just two rounds (with a ten-minute break in between) all in the morning, so we were done and headed out just after lunch.  
Everything ran so smoothly despite the condensed format.  We were able to do our formal inspections right before we mounted up, and we were all encouraged to limit our warm up time.  We were not allowed to wear jackets, and there was a TON of horse water and ice cold human water available at numerous stations around the field.
I was competing with Epona Pony Club, but I was again put on a Horsemaster team with two other adults from Foxcroft Pony Club, Angie and Beth, the two riders I competed with at the…

Catch up time!

Oh, I have been a bad blogger!  Two months is a long time!  How often I think that ought to go on my blog and then life happens, and well......here we are!  :-)

Instead of a long boring post, how about a mess of photos to show you what we have been up to!  :-)


Snappy has been jogging...

I've done some cleaning and organizing in my tack room!  Believe it or not, I sold a bunch of saddle pads and my show pads are in another trunk!  LOL!  Yes, I have a problem...

We now have a jog cart for Snappy...

Clarence has done a little riding (here on Dreamy)...
We are working on those heels!

Sparky is looking fantastic for 31 years old this year!

Snappy has finally decided to accept Nose Kisses.  

Maybe because she likes her new saddle pad???  LOL!

Macky the barn cat has been doing what he does best...

Dreamy has been to two open hunter shows so far...

And we went to a team penning clinic again! 

The trees have finally grown leaves, the lawn is green, and I would say spring is finally here!  Snappy sprouted dapples, too!

  1. I'm a bad blogger too....as I love reading everyone else's blogs rather than writing on my own. I think of stuff to write about all the time.....and then I don't write about it :-/.
    I love the photos. Sparky looks awesome! Seeing photos like that gives me hope that I will have several more precious years with my Griffin (he's 25 this year). My fingers are crossed that the money gods will shine on me next year when the car is paid and I can adopt another wonderful Standie :-). I love your saddle pad collection......I have a brush & grooming tool collection just like it :-)
