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…

2015 in Photos

2015 was a big year!  In order to catch up to present time, here are the highlights...


We started with this...
And ended up with...
A gorgeous home built by my father!  :-)
We moved in during the month of April 2015.
It has little horsey touches, of course!
And we needed a barn...
So Dad built us a barn, too!  
Horse stalls on the right, oxen stalls on the left!  
This is the horse side!
The mares like their new place!  We have a lot more work to do, but we are loving it so far!  The animals moved in during December 2015.

He asked and I said YES!  (That's Sparky's old horse shoe, of course!)
We were married on July 4, 2015.



Our cake had us with my son, plus Dreamy, Snappy, Andy & Jack!


And then we welcomed this little one in September 2015...
He was a good reason not to ride or show horses in 2015!  ;-)
My boys! 
See, I told you 2015 was quite the year!  LOL!
