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…

Crazy Coincidences!

Wanna hear something crazy?  My oldest son turned twelve on May 23, and BOTH of my mares, Snap Dancer and Dreamy Starlet, share his birthday!  Snappy was both in 2000 and Dreamy in 1991.

Even weirder?  After Snappy's first dressage show in May, I realized they both started showing at age sixteen at the same show in the month of May.  And they both won their Intro A classes!  (Snappy's placed second in Intro B and I am pretty sure Dreamy had a third, but that was a while ago LOL!)

Here are pics showing them each trotting down centerline for the first time.
