SMDA Recognized Show - July 14, 2019

Ellie and I tried her first recognized show in July.  It was quite an interesting experience; I don't know why this has been such a weird year, but sadly it has!

OK, Bloggers, I need help finding a belt!

Of course, I already had Amy from Dark Jewel Designs create the perfect matching browband.  If you are looking for a fantastic custom browband at a great price point, check out her Etsy site!


Now I'd love a belt, preferably a ribbon belt a la Mango Bay style!  Please help me out, Blogger friends!

  2. Yes! I love my C4 belt, too! I just don't want a solid teal belt (though it is super cute). I just ordered two different Mango Bay belts to see which one looks best (and told myself I will send the other one back....hahaha).
