She's Not a Baby Anymore!

Early spring saw some immediate changes in how Ellie carried herself and our dressage work started to truly improve.  There had been times last year where flat work felt like a fight and I wondered to myself if she was ever going to just relax and listen to me haha.

Thankfully, as the title suggests, Ellie has suddenly grown up in front of my eyes.  We have had some really stellar lessons lately, where I feel like I am suddenly able to make things click.  We also had an incredibly frustrating dressage lesson a few weeks ago where Ellie was in rip-roaring peeing heat (not normal for her) and we worked through 45 minutes of her refusing to bend right.  So, ya know, as much as she is improving, she is still an opinionated redheaded mare!  ;-)

CONTEST TIME!

How about a contest!?  

Win a USG A/P Pad and Bonnet in dark green/brown with matching socks!



Here's how to enter:

Step 1: Comment ONE guess as to what our dressage score will be at the Area I Schooling Championships on August 20, 2017.

Step 2: Like my Facebook page, Instagram page, or Twitter page (or all three for a better shot at winning!)

Step 3: For more chances to win, share this post on your social media, become a blog follower, or even make a comment on a blog post between now and Championships!

Steps 1 and 2 MUST be completed in order to win.  If you guess correctly but you do not follow at least ONE of my social media accounts, you are not eligible.

The contest will end at midnight Eastern time 8/19/2017, which means you must guess before we ride our test the following day!  

If there are multiple correct guesses, I will randomly pick a winner.  If no one guesses correctly, the closest guess wins.  This contest is not affiliated with any social media companies or with USG in any way.  I receive no compensation, this is just for fun!

HINT: Our scores this year have averaged around 27.55 and ranged from 18.1 to 33.13.
