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.

Team Penning Clinic 2013

Dreamy and I had another chance to play with cows this year at the 2013 team penning clinic hosted by the Central Maine Team Penning Association on May 18.  I wrote about it here last year.  My friend Shelly came with me this time, and she brought her new project, a palomino QH gelding.  We both had a great day and the horses were awesome!  I really hope I can make time to compete at a CMTPA show this year!

This is Shelly's project horse.  He was super good and very happy to hang with Dreamy all day! 
Does this saddle make my butt look big?
Cute face, weird angle.  Her neck is not that skinny, promise!   
Wild pony!
Dreamy likes being a cow pony!
