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.

Snap Dancer Has a New Career Move...As a Cover Girl!

Professional photographer Elena Raymond snapped this shot of us at the end of our very first dressage test and I just love it.  I've had it as my Facebook profile pic since she shared it with me in May.  I am so pleased she sent it in and they actually used it!  Very cool!


Joy, love, and trust...I just love this!
