ME Morgan Benefit Show - August 10, 2019

I had not been planning to bring Ellie to this show, but an email had gone out to members a few days prior that entries were a bit low.  So in order to support the club, we headed out to Pineland Farm the morning of August 10, for what promised to be a gorgeous summer day!  All photos that I am in were purchased from the show photographer!
I always think these types of shows are going to be fine, but at the end of every single one of them, I always remember why I should stick with dressage and eventing haha.  That is not to say there is anything wrong with open shows or the club that runs them; this is just not the type of showing we do well at because she's not a "show horse".
The show was held at a gorgeous facility that boasts both large indoor and outdoor arenas.  They chose to have the show indoors with warm-up outside, which is fine, but Ellie was not a fan of the indoor.  One corner was open to the large and echo-y storage area where they had set up the secretary…

One More Big Purchase...

After purchasing the dump trailer in the previous post, it was time to purchase a new horse trailer.  I sold my trusty 20" Eby stock trailer last fall for $500 more than I paid for it brand new in 2004 LOL!  The new trailer is a similar style but it is made by a local Maine company called Frontier!  It's a great trailer and 24' long, so there is a bit more space.  We had it custom designed with two 9' sections and then a smaller 6' section at the front for a tack space.
