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…

Fun t-shirt

I follow several blogs and this morning I casually clicked on a website, Vantage Equestrian Lifestyle, which was reviewed by blogger The $900 Facebook Pony.  She reviewed a cute eventing t-shirt, which I fully expected to be pricey (it is, at $29).  I clicked around a little, seeing a link for Breeds.  I was floored to see "Raise Your Standards" and thought there is NO WAY they have Standardbred apparel!  Lo and behold, they DO!!




OK, so it is even more expensive than the cute dressage tee at $35, but GUYS IT IS A STANDARDBRED!  LOL!  Not sure I will be buying this anytime soon because $$$, but it is definitely on my wishlist now!
