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…

And Then It All Changed...

While I knew what I am about to write had been coming for years, I finally had the courage to actually DO it.  I will say it was the best decision I have ever made.

I did a lot of thinking...
And more thinking...
And then I finally packed up my stuff and moved out.  This was the beginning...
There was a ton more than this...
My son and I moved back home and my horses moved to my grandfather's farm.  Building fences... 
And then I set about to figure out the rest of my life at 34 years old.  :-)
