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.

Smartpak Success Stories

Back in the late winter of 2015, I was contacted by Smartpak to write "Success Stories" for the two supplements my mares use.  I have Dreamy on SmartBreathe and Snappy on Smartgut Ultra.  They published the stories online last fall and in their little magazines they send out.

This is just kind of silly and fun, but I wanted to document it here.  :-)

Snappy (click her name to see it on their blog)


Dreamy's never made it onto their blog like Snappy's.  And they called her 15 years old, but this year she is turning 25!!  LOL!
